Optimal Design of Thermoelectric Generators Embedded in a Thermal Resistance Network.

Brownell, Elizabeth.

Abstract: A procedure to optimize the height and number of semiconductor pellets in a thermoelectric generator (TEG) embedded in a thermal resistance network to maximize its performance (output power) or efficiency is provided. Prescribed are the required thermophysical properties of the pellets, temperature difference across the system, total footprint of thermoelectric material, relevant thermal... read more
