Thermal transport in thin film transistors (TFTs) composed of nanowires embedded in plastic substrates is considered. Random ensembles of intersecting and contacting wires embedded in a substrate are analyzed using Fourier theory. Heat generation due to self-heating is included. A finite volume scheme is used to obtain the temperature solutions in the wires and substrate. Temperature profiles in the ensemble are investigated as a function of wire number density, wire-contact Biot number as well as the Biot number for heat transfer to the substrate.
