One-dimensional numerical simulations were conducted for the performance of the conventional heat pipe(CHP). In the current investigation, the operating limitations of an CHP were theoretically studied in order to determine its maximum heat transport capability. The thermal network approach was used to calculate the performance of the CHP, based on the methodology to produce results of reasonable accuracy. In the present study, the effect of variation in length of the CHP on the performance was analyzed using the corresponding thermal networks.
