2 What is EHD? The application of Electric Fields to induce the fluid motion. Hence,  Enhance Heat Transfer caused by disruption of boundary layer near heat transfer surface  Pumping Action

3 Why is EHD?  Controllable  Dielectric fluid  Simplified implementation  Localised cooling of complex curved passages  Applicable in zero gravity

4 Applications  Air conditioning, refrigerant systems  Electronic cooling  Biomedical (alternative E, natural frequency)  Cryogenic processing system  Thermal control system
