A general method was developed to predict the condenser temperature at each power load. And a simulation program and infrared camera was used to study the flow characteristics. High density polyethylene porous material was added in the evaporator to CPL, the loop was designed on the ground with a horizontal position and scale down the whole device to the miniature size. From the experimental results, the CPL could remove heat 110W in steady state and keep the heat source temperature about 80°C. Finally, a good agreement between the simulation and experimental values has been achieved. Comparing with experiment and simulation results, the deviation values of the distributions of the condenser outlet temperature are less than 5%.
