A heat exchanger is a device that is used to transfer thermal energy from one fluid to another. The process involves two fluids. On the other hand, a cold plate involves only one fluid that is used to cool (or heat) a system. The general analysis and design principles for a cold plate are identical to those for a heat exchanger. Therefore, all discussion in this chapter will be confined to heat exchangers. Heat exchangers are normally used to cool the circulating fluid in electronic equipment.
