2016-05-20 Ukraine: Development of Composite Nanofluids - Effective Coolants for Servers (data centers) and Computers


Development of Composite Nanofluids - Effective Coolants for Servers (data centers) and Computers

Description of the project offered: 
TOPIC : Bringing to market more energy efficient and integrated data centres 
Topic identifier: EE-20-2017 

Energy consumption for servers cooling is approximately 40 % or more of a total power usage of the data center. Reducing energy consumption for cooling servers will improve the efficiency of data centers and simultaneously reduce the cost of their work. 
Traditional cooling methods have their drawbacks: high energy consumption – air-cooling, the complexity and insecurity of service – cooling by perfluorocarbons or low efficiency of heat removal including liquid cooling.
Nanofluids (NFs) are a brand new generation of heat transfer mediums with enhanced thermal conductivity and abnormally high heat exchange. Developed NFs will have application as heat carrier for cooling of high loaded electronic equipment (servers and computers) operating at room temperature, but under high specific heat fluxes. Developed composite nanofluids will dramatically increase the heat removal and respectively (in times) to reduce energy consumption for cooling servers. Fully automated multipurpose laboratory complex for nanofluids investigation has been designed and constructed.
Creation of scientific bases and technology of NFs production and providing their tests. Creation of the laboratory stand for research of nanofluids thermal conductivity and cooling ability of nanofluids at free and forced convection. Study of influence of a nature, crystal structure and morphology of nanoparticles on nanofluids thermal conductivity. 

Provide marketing, create business plan for the implementation of work results. 
Expected results 
NFs samples will be prepared by methods of colloidal chemistry using nanoparticles of different chemical nature. Physicochemical properties of created NFs will be studied as heat transfer mediums. It will be established regularity of the influence of nanoparticles thermal conductivity as their physicochemical properties (hydrophility, shape and anisometry, surface charge concentration etc.) on general heat conductivity, critical heat flux and heat transfer coefficient of NFs in case of forced convection. The results will form the basis of technology for production of effective heat carrier with high thermal conductivity and its application for cooling of servers, computers and other highloaded units.
