Nowadays, heat transfer enhancement devices are becoming very essential in many applications. Most of electronic devices, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, contain processors. Advanced processors require efficient cooling for an optimal performance. Due to the growing interest in faster and lighter devices, researchers always seek to innovate and optimize cooling strategies. In spatial applications, the use of typical cooling systems can cause complications due to the vibrations during takeoff and due to zero gravity effects. Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) pumping, which is based on the interaction of a dielectric liquid with an electric field, could present a solution to all these challenges. EHD pumps were considered a breakthrough in the field of cooling since they demonstrate many advantages over other types of pumps. EHD devices are less power consuming, lighter and cheaper. They don't have moving parts and they are suitable for microgravity applications. The hydrofluoroethers (HFE) are dielectric liquids that could be ideally utilized in these pumps for many applications. Being dielectric fluids with eco-friendly properties, HFEs could replace CFCs, HFCs, HCFCs, and PFCs. Due to their promising EHD applications, studies must be done to investigate the variation of their dielectric behavior with electric field and with temperature. This work presents an experimental investigation of the dielectric characteristics of HFE-7000 with temperature variations. Understanding this aspect can help enhance and optimize the performance of EHD systems.
