New plate cools electric, hybrid systems

ADVERTISEMENT

Toronto-based Baknor has designed, developed and manufactured a liquid cold plate that dissipates heat from electric and hybrid propulsion systems.

Using water-glycol mixtures, the company says it can provide a solution specific to a customer’s system, especially if a design includes high-power electronics, inverters, DC-DC converters, hybrid and electric drive system, variable speed drives, traction drives, CPU, chillers, and power supplies. Turbulators increase the coolant velocity in channels with minimal increase in pressure from a pump, the company said.
