Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am currently studying transformer design, in particular cooling methods.

I am tyring to calculate the cooling effect (increased heat transfer) of adding cooling fins to a transformer.

Does anyone know of some general equations/methods for calculating the increased heat radiation achieved by adding cooling fins.

Thanks,

Rob
