THERMAL CONSIDERATIONS FORMULA

Tc - Ta = /\T = Trca Pout (¹/n -1) where,
Trca = Thermal Resistance of case to air
Pout =  Output Power in Watts
n = Efficiency
Tc = Case temperature in ºC
Ta = Ambient Temperature in ºC

Example 1:
A UWD24S module has an efficiency of 78%.  What is the maximum ambient temperature if 50 Watts of power is needed?

A) In free air.
               From Table 1:  Trca =7.9
               Using relation (2)
           /\T=7.9(50)[¹/.78 -1] = 111.4ºC

               Ta = 85-114.4 = -26.4ºC

B) In free air with heatsink LCV
               Trca=4.2
           /\T=4.2(50)[¹/.78 -1] = 59.2ºC

               Ta = 85-59.23 = 25.8ºC

C) With 400 LFM of air flow.
               Trca = 2.5
           /\T=2.5(50)[¹/.78 -1] = 35.3ºC

               Ta = 85-35.3 = 49.7ºC
 

Example 2:
What would be the maximum output power for a UWD24S module at an ambient temperature of 50ºC with and efficiency of 78%?

A) If the module is used in free air.
               From Table 1:  Trca = 7.9
               Using relation (2)
               85-50 = 7.9 Pout[¹/.78 -1]
               Pout = 35/7.9(.282) = 16W

B) If the module with heatsink LCV is used with free air.

               Trca = 4.2
               Pout = 35/4.2(.282) = 30W

C)  If the module is used in an area with forced air at 400 LFM with no heatsink.

               Trca = 2.5
               Pout = 35/2.5(.282) = 49.6W
