ECU is mainly composed of the microcontroller, the power modules for 2-Drive inverter unit, the peripheral IC for the microcontroller abnormality detection and the heat sink for spreading heat which is generated by the joule heating of the power modules.
Resistive Joule heating causes the energy that was moving the electrons forward to change into heat energy, which means some of the generated power gets converted into heat and lost to the surrounding environment instead of getting to its intended destination (like our homes and offices).

This would explain why there was no substantial tissue destruction visualized with the first ultrasound, as expected in the liver injury caused by Joule heating.
FloTHERM XT now supports transient analysis, Joule heating, parametric studies, extended EDA integration capabilities, and new modeling options, including the ability to represent copper in detail for complex PCBs.
In addition to being excellent blackbody absorbers, carbon nanotube sheets are a fast source of Joule heating [Kwon 2004] and can be utilized to heat the solar collectors when sunlight is not sufficient.
Such evidence allows that assertion that the temperature increase generated by Joule heating could play an important role in the response of the CNT/epoxy composites to electrical current, which needs to be studied.

The current produces a joule heating effect at the contact of the two sheets and the weld nugget is thus formed.
Further miniaturisation leads to higher energy density being dissipated in the fluid, and the heating source could be external or internal Joule heating [23].
