Hey, I’m trying to simulate a cooling system in a Peltier sensor, like the one below:
However, I’m facing a few issues to model the problem using conjugate heat-transfer analysis. Besides the cooler, heatsink and peltier in my project, I’m using a bigger block to simulate the air domain.
Basically, the heatsink starts at 25 ºC and the peltier has a constant heat flow of 55 W additionally, the cooler has a mass flow of 4 kg/s. The boundary conditions in the simulation are Velocity Inlet/Pressure outlet for the cooler, contact resistance between the heatsink and peltier and the heatsink has the temperature model as turbulent heat flux.
