Title: PREDICTIVE THERMAL CONTROL MANAGEMENT USING TEMPERATURE AND POWER SENSORS
Abstract:
Embodiments of the present disclosure include a microcontroller configured to cool an electronic device. The microcontroller is configured to receive a power consumption value of the electronic device, determine, based on the power consumption value and a stored previous power consumption value, a change value representing an amount that power consumption of the electronic device changed from a previous power consumption of the electronic device, determine an output cooling control value based at least in part on the change value, and control an output for cooling the electronic device using the output cooling control value.
