Effect Of Perforated Rectangular Baffle With Different Opening Sizes And Pressure Drop In Cooling Of Solar Power Pack Using CFD
The heat generating electrical devices such as Battery Bank, Inverter and Controller are housed in an enclosure
called Solar Power Pack (SPP). This numerical study is mainly focused on effect of Baffle with perforation of different
opening sizes such as 25% and 35% of total area of Baffle, ensuring uniform air motion in an enclosure in cooling these
devices such that they operate less than the range of operating temperature. Also this study comprises of investigating the
effect of pressure drop helps in minimizing power consumption/ pumping power cost. ANSYS FLUENT is used for
numerical analysis. Numerical results satisfy analytical results.
