This paper presents an experimental investigation of a miniature ejector using water as the working fluid. The investigated ejector cooling system can utilize the thermal energy to be removed to power the cooling system and maintain the temperature of an electronic component below ambient temperature. The effects of working conditions, nozzle exit position (NXP), and area ratio on the coefficient of performance (COP) of ejector performance were conducted. Experimental results show that the miniature ejector can function well when the temperature in the high-temperature evaporator (HTE) ranges from 55 °C to 70 °C, and can achieve a COP (coefficient of performance) of 0.66. With an increase of the NXP, the COP decreases, while the critical condensing pressure first increases and then decreases. As the area ratio of the miniature ejector increases, the COP increases, and the critical condensing pressure decreases.
