tussait is on a distinguished road

I use Openfoam 2.1 and i would like to simulate an elektronic component on top of an solid surrounded by an fluid.
i chose the buoyant MultiRegionSimpleFoam solver and worked thought the MultiRegionHeaterRadiation tutorial.

The Problem is that i dont know how to simulate heat flow caused by the power consumption of the component.
In the tutorial the heater has an fixed temperature. Anyone got some idea?
