This industrial paper introduces the new Liquid Cooling Library (LCL) that is available in ANSYS Twin Builder Heating and Cooling Library bundle. This library is a multi-tool compatible Modelica Library which can help customers to deploy simulation of cooling systems in a new way. In general, LCL can be used for modeling cooling circuits across many industries like aerospace, automotive and process industry. The combination with the extensive electronics and electrical machine libraries in Twin Builder makes LCL a natural fit for cooling of power electronics and thermal management of electric vehicles.
