Hello, I would like to design control station, and I didn't decided cooling fan. My case size is 535 x 360 x H 225 mm. And I will put the fan on the large side and inlet height is 175 mm. Can you help me about the fan choosing?

Meaningless question?

How much power is dissipated in the enclosure?

As to most things engineering, without some numeric units, it's totally pointless to guess.

I'm sorry for this bad question. I'm new in this platform. I exactly would like to ask what's the parameters for fan choosing and what's calculation method for fan choosing? Beacuse there are uncertain components in this case.

As asked above, how many Watts does the control station use?
What voltage (AC or DC) is available to power the fan?
What physical space limits are there for the fan?

What is a Control Station,,, just selct the maximum size that will get rid of the fumes or good airflow with the best voltage available...

Note that you will also need an outlet for the air the fan is pushing in. As far as possible position the fan and the heat producing parts such that the air is directed at the hottest parts.

So from here you calculate the volume of the case or cabinet. Next you look at how much heat whatever is in the cabinet generates under worst or maximum operation conditions. When looking at fans you consider the volume of air a fan moves per minute. Finally how often do you want to change the volume of air for outside ambient air. Normally in a large cabinet I bring air in the bottom and vent it out of the top.
