Piezoelectric type cooling device


There is provided a piezoelectric type cooling device including: a housing having an internal space formed by combining an upper housing and a lower housing and having openings allowing the internal space to be in communication with the atmosphere to allow air to be introduced thereinto and discharged therefrom; a diaphragm provided to traverse the internal space of the housing to divide the internal space into upper and lower blower chambers; and a piezoelectric actuator provided on at least one surface of the diaphragm to provide vertical driving force to the diaphragm.

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application claims the priority of Korean Patent Application No. 10-2011-0050315 filed on May 26, 2011, in the Korean Intellectual Property Office, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to a piezoelectric type cooling device using a piezoelectric actuator.

2. Description of the Related Art

When various electronic devices, including a computer, are continuously used, heat is generated therein and may deteriorate the performance thereof. Therefore, various electronic devices include at least one cooling unit.

According to the related art, a fan type cooling unit has mainly been used. However, a cooling device using a fan has excessive noise, excessive power consumption, difficulties in a manufacturing method thereof, and difficulties in miniaturization. Therefore, there is a need to provide a novel cooling device solving the defects according to the related art.

SUMMARY

OF THE INVENTION

An aspect of the present invention provides a cooling device capable of having relatively low noise and low power consumption, being simply manufactured, and being easily miniaturized.

According to an aspect of the present invention, there is provided a piezoelectric type cooling device including: a housing having an internal space formed by combining an upper housing and a lower housing and having openings allowing the internal space to be in communication with the atmosphere to allow air to be introduced thereinto and discharged therefrom; a diaphragm provided to traverse the internal space of the housing to divide the internal space into upper and lower blower chambers; and a piezoelectric actuator provided on at least one surface of the diaphragm to provide vertical driving force to the diaphragm.

The upper and lower housings may be symmetrical with regard to one another.

The openings may be provided in the upper and lower housings, respectively.

The openings provided in the upper housing may be provided in a side or a main surface thereof.

The openings provided in the lower housing may be provided in a side or a main surface thereof.

Each of the upper and lower housing may include an air channel groove formed in an inner peripheral surface thereof.

The air channel groove may be in communication with the opening at at least one point.

Inner peripheral surfaces of the upper and lower housings may have a dome shape corresponding to a shape in which the diaphragm moves vertically.

The diaphragm may be fitted between an upper edge and a lower edge at which the upper and lower housings are combined with each other.

The housing may have a cylindrical shape.

The housing may have a rectangular pillar shape.

A plurality of the piezoelectric actuators may be provided in a manner in which they are overlapped on at least one surface of the diaphragm.

According to another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a piezoelectric type cooling device including: a housing having an internal space formed by combining an upper housing and a lower housing and having openings allowing the internal space to be in communication with the atmosphere to allow air to be introduced thereinto and discharged therefrom; a plurality of diaphragms each provided to traverse the internal space of the housing to divide the internal space into a plurality of blower chambers having a vertically multilayered shape; and a plurality of piezoelectric actuators each provided on at least one surface of the plurality of diaphragms to provide vertical driving force to the plurality of diaphragms.

The openings may be provided so that each of the blower chambers is in communication with the atmosphere.

The openings provided in a blower chamber adjacent to a main surface of the upper or lower housing among the blower chambers may be provided in a side or the main surface of the upper or lower housing.

The openings provided in a blower chamber formed by the side of the upper or lower housing and the diaphragm, among the blower chambers, may be provided in the side of the upper or lower housing.

The blower chamber formed by the side of the upper or lower housing and the diaphragm, among the blower chambers, may further include a partition wall provided to traverse the internal space thereof.

The partition wall may be provided to have a through-hole formed therein, such that the air may be vertically introduced or discharged.
