A novel precision-cooled rack is available for cooling critical wind turbine components. Parker’s Precision-Cooled Rack uses proven and patented two-phase evaporative cooling, which uses non-corrosive, non-conductive fluid, as it vaporizes and cools hot surfaces on contact. A small pump delivers enough coolant to the evaporator, usually a series of cold plates optimized to acquire heat from devices. The rack can cool critical wind turbine systems such as power conversion electronics, generators, and gearboxes, and also provides a smaller, lighter footprint than racks using alternative thermal management.
