Computer Aided Design of Automotive Alternator Fans for Improved Cooling Performance and Noise 960274
Development process of a set of duct fans for an automotive alternator is described. By computer modeling, one can estimate the airflow characteristics of a given fan for providing increased cooling performance and lower noise. The process includes identification of several fan geometries and definition of an optimum configuration. Test results are provided for the final design.
