How is the fan controlled?

What is the flowrate from the fan?

What influence does the heat sink have on fan

performance?

What are the thermal limits on the processor & can the

fan cool the processor effectively?

What are the noise and vibration restrictions on the fan &

can the fan meet these restrictions and cool the chip?

Modulation (PWM)

1. Questions to answer

How is the fan controlled?

Relationship between power, fan speed, & air flow

Effect of the heat sink on fan performance

modulated resulting in the variation of the

average value of the waveform.

Pressure, fan speed, and flowrate ranges, time response

of pressure sensor, cost, sampling rate, etc.

4. Design experiment to minimize external influences

How to measure flowrate to properly account for heat

sink obstruction?

How can we measure the fanspeed accurately?

6. Are the data realistic?

Compare data with specs from manufacturer

Does the fan obey classical fan laws?

here is ~33%.

Note that the period, T, remains the same for

changes in duty cycle (only changes).

Ground wire: common ground

Power: +12 V from computer (power supply in lab)

PWM: Control wire for PWM. Input from computer

(myDAQ in our lab).

Output: Speed sensor wire that gives feedback to

the computer (myDAQ in our lab).

We need to examine the output from the fan.

What type of signal does the fan output?

How can we use this signal to determine

fan rotation speed?

Note that the wire colors are,

unfortunately, not identical for all fans

in the lab. See the wiring diagram on

your lab bench.

static pressure after the fan

We can use the specification sheet from the manufacturer to

find the flowrate after measuring the static pressure.

Its always good practice to have a secondary measurement

to verify expected performance.

Can you think of an

easy, albeit crude,

method to estimate

flowrate from the

fan? .

of the gauge is 0 to 0.3 inches of water (0 to 7.62 mm), and

the corresponding voltage output range is 1 10 volts. (Note
