Abstract : Effort was devoted to the design of the converter, converter housing and gasoline burner. The thermoelectric converter will consist of twelve power modules each having six thermocouples. In an attempt to limit the size and weight of the generator assembly, the cold shoes will be cooled by two centrifugal fans and commercially available heat exchangers. The burner portion of the generator will consist of a radiant, burner head, injector and vaporizer. All of these sections have been designed, and the majority of the components constructed.
