Efficient Thermal Management for Power LEDs
In the world of power LEDs with high luminous efficacy and energy efficiency, efficient thermal management is critical. The thermal power generated during operation of these LEDs can significantly affect performance and lifetime. The thermal power dissipation in power LEDs occurs in the semiconductors. Some of the electrical energy is converted to light, but a significant amount is released in the form of heat, The ability to effectively dissipate this heat is key to extending the life and maintaining the quality of the lighting.
OPTIMIZED HEAT FLOW
For optimized heat flow, various thermal interface materials (TIM) can be used. These include thermal conductive pastes (TCP), phase change materials (PCM), graphite foils, thermal conductive adhesives and PSA tapes. The choice between adhesive and non-adhesive thermal interface materials depends on the specific requirements. Adhesive materials provide a permanent bond between the LED and heat sink, while non-adhesive materials allow for easier disassembly but require fasteners such as screws and clips. Selecting the right installation location is critical to achieve optimal results.
