Abstract

In this paper, we describe an optimization process of thermal design for the light lamp which utilizes the Light Emitting Diode (LED) module as a lighting source. The thermal performance of the LED module was shown to significantly improve by the optimization process of cooling system attached with it. A wind circulating cooling system was designed for the LED arrays with the input power of 60 Watts and another heat pipe cooling system was designed for the input power of 144 Watts. The effects of design parameters such as air temperature and air velocity on the thermal performance of LED lamp were investigated. Thermal performance of the two cooling systems was compared for practical application.
