Abstract:

The feasibility of solid state application for electrical power generation and heat pumping in small automotive vehicles has been examined. A new geometric configuration for the thermoelectric couple was introduced and the heat flow problem has been solved analytically in detail. The obtained results appeared promising for future developments in this area. Author
