This study reports the comparative investigation on the performance of double layered microchannel heatsinks for effective cooling of concentrated photovoltaic cells. The main aim is to find the best performance of fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics in a heatsink. Three different types of double -layered microchannel heatsinks (DL-MCHS); straight, wavy and zig-zag with counter current flow arrangement is studied. The mathematical models are solved using continuity, Navier-stokes and energy equations. Fluent module of ANSYS Workbench is utilized for solving the models. This study incorporates water being used as the coolant with laminar flow regime operating within the Reynolds number range of 50 to 1500. Two distinct characteristic parameters mainly thermal resistance and pumping power are identified and evaluated for determining the performance of the microchannel heatsinks. Wavy DL-MCHS proves to be dominant in terms of obtaining a better thermal and fluid flow performance when compared to zig-zag and straight DL-MCHS.
