Cool your jets: ICOPE tackles new challenges in thermal management

02 November 2020

The trend in aviation towards electrification presents new challenges, one of which is managing the unwanted by-product of electrical systems: heat. An ineffective dissipation of heat could lead to a drop in the efficiency of specific airborne systems. Clean Sky’s ICOPE (Innovative COoling system for embedded Power Electronics) project explores new approaches to onboard thermal management using novel air cooled heat sinks and advanced materials.
