Alteration of orientation
Optimal Thermal Solutions BV used 6SigmaET simulation software to examine what the influence of the orientation of a LED-heatsink is on the thermal performance. The two heatsinks were examined with the use of an extruded heatsink (ModuLED9980) and a pin fin heatsink (LPF11180-ZHE). The results of the simulation have been compared to the measured values. This has pointed out that the maximum difference between the test- and simulation data is 1,9 K or 5% is.
