Thermodynamic Analysis and Parameter Optimization of a Solar Thermoelectric Power Unit with Radiation Heat Dissipation,
ARMY FOREIGN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER CHARLOTTESVILLE VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The methodology for optimizing the calculation of parameters of a thermoelectric battery obtaining heat at a constant junction temperature and emitting it into the surrounding space by means of radiation at a uniform temperature is examined. An equation for the efficiency factor for the maximum power routine is derived from a formula of A.F. Ioffe. The methodology is applied to an example, and 27 parameters are calculated.
