Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,942

1. A cooling system for a variable speed drive (VSD), comprising:a manifold coupled to a frame of the VSD and a VSD component to provide structural support to the frame of the VSD and the VSD component;
a cooling member coupled to the manifold and in a heat exchange relationship with the VSD component;
a fluid passageway of the manifold configured to flow a cooling fluid through the manifold; and
a plurality of ports disposed along the manifold, wherein the plurality of ports is in fluid communication with the fluid passageway and the cooling member, such that the plurality of ports enable the cooling fluid to flow between the fluid passageway and the cooling member.
