This paper presents an experimental investigation of a miniature ejector using water as the working fluid. The investigated ejector cooling system can be used to keep the temperature of an electric chip below ambient temperature. The authors tested the effects of working conditions, the nozzle exit position (NXP), and the area ratio on the ejector’s performance. Experimental results show that the miniature ejector works well in the high-temperature evaporator (HTE) under temperatures ranging from 55 °C to 70 °C and can achieve a 0.66 coefficient of performance (COP). With the increase of the NXP, the COP decreased, while the critical condensing pressure first increased and then decreased. As the area ratio of the miniature ejector increased, the COP increased, and the critical condensing pressure decreased.
