The cooling of electronic components, assemblies and systems up to entire systems has always been part of the tools of hardware developers and system designers. However, due to the unstoppable increase in packing density and the steadily increasing throughput, this classic engineering task becomes a constant challenge.
ELEKTRONIKPRAXIS has launched the Cooling Days to ensure that electronics developers and device manufacturers can meet these challenges in the best possible way. Numerous aspects of electronic cooling will be analyzed over three days. Experts from industry and research explain the most important basics of heat management and present new processes and products for electronic cooling.
Electronics Cooling & Heat Management Congress
October 23-25, 2018 in Würzburg
>> Prices and registration
The focus of the Cooling Days this year is on basics and simulation on October 23, technology trends and best practice on October 24, and control cabinet cooling and power electronics on October 25: www.cooling-days.de.

Parallel to the Cooling Days 2018 (www.cooling-days.de) there are further specialist conferences: the Power Congress (www.power-kongress.de), the new DC / DC converter day (www.dc-dc- wandler-tag.de) and the Datacenter Day (www.dc-day.de).
The participants of all conferences meet on October 23 and 24 in a joint exhibition that offers many interesting starting points: an ideal opportunity for networking among the participants and with experts from research and industry.

Pfannenberg will be exhibiting for the first time at Smart Automation in Vienna from May 10 to 12, 2016, where it will showcase solutions in the areas of control cabinet air conditioning, process cooling and signal technology. The highlight at the booth are the communication-capable devices
A combined heat and power plant - what is it actually?Combined heat and power plants (erroneously often referred to as block power plants or block heating plants) are modern heating systems that provide not only heat for heating and hot water, but also electricity to meet your own needs
Functional principle of active cooling with the heat pumpActive cooling, according to the free translation of active cooling, is possible both with a brine-water heat pump (geothermal heat) and with an air-water heat pump. In order to obtain the desirable cooling effect, the functional principle of the device is theoretically reversed
How passive cooling worksBecause the basic features of heat pumps hardly function differently from a refrigerator, they can be used very flexibly. They provide heating with environmental heat and / or provide hot water all year round. The frequently used option of cooling rooms efficiently and cost-effectively in summer is another reason to buy a heat pump
Explanation of terms and basics of heat wavesTo understand how heat wave heating works, it has to be clarified what the term "heat wave" actually means. They are a form of heat transfer. A distinction must be made between the following types of transmission:Heat conductionHeat flowHeat radiationThe heat waves are just another term for radiation
