Thermal Solutions for Renewable Energy and Energy Conversion

Heat pipes and other thermal management systems for renewable energy applications such as in solar, wind and geothermal can help you design more efficient, more cost-effective and greener systems. These thermal technologies have been a Aavid Thermacore specialty for decades.

thermal solutions in solar concentratorsIn solar energy, we are leaders in two-phase heat transfer solutions such as heat pipes and high-temperature heat pipes for cooling multiple solar generating system components.

In Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) applications, uniform heat distribution is crucial for electric power generation efficiency in applications such as Stirling engines and solar panels. Aavid Thermacore heat pipe technology, relying on the laws of thermodynamics to spread heat passively, makes uniform heat distribution possible. This eliminates problems such as non-uniform heat fluxes and associated hot spots where two solar mirrors overlap in CSP systems. In addition, Thermacore technologies remove waste heat from solar cells in Photovoltaics (or PV) solar systems to lower solar cell temperatures and improve PV conversion efficiencies.

For wind power generation thermal solutions, Aavid Thermacore offers custom heat pipe assemblies ideal for cooling power generation subsystems in remote areas where maintenance is difficult. Our heat pipes have no moving parts to fail, reducing or eliminating maintenance requirements.
