Abstract. Mathematical modeling of heat transfer in the film-substrate-thermostat system with a pulsed flow of high-density current through an electrically conductive film has been carried out. On the basis of the simulation, the analysis of the heating of a niobium nitride film with a high resistivity near the critical temperature of the transition to the superconducting state is made. The inhomogeneous heat conduction equation which is solved numerically, simulates heat transfer in the film-substrate-thermostat system for the third on the left and the first on the right initial boundary value problem. Using the symmetry of the problem, the parameter $H$ is determined, which is equal to the ratio of the heat transfer of the film surface to its thermal conductivity; this parameter is necessary for effective heat removal. It is shown that effective heat removal from films can be provided by current-carrying and potential clamping contacts made, for example, of beryllium bronze. This makes possible to study the current-voltage characteristics of superconductors near the critical transition temperature to the superconducting state with high-density currents $(10^4 - 10^5 A/cm^2)$ without significant heating of the samples.

Key Words: inhomogeneous heat conduction equation, 1st initial-boundary value problem, 3rd initial-boundary value problem, niobium nitride membrane, pulsed heating by current
