Abstract:

The article finds expressions for the output power of efficiency of a thermoelectric generator and temperature distribution along the heat carrier under the condition that temperatures of the thermocontact surfaces vary due to the cooling and heating of the heat carriers. Simple approximation calculation formulas are given for the particular cases examined. This work is devoted to the finding of analytical bonds, which make it possible to make the calculation of the thermogenerator at changing as a result of heat transfer temperatures of the solderings. The obtained expressions can be useful in the preliminary determination of the optimal parameters of the generators maximal power and efficiency, minimal weight, etc. and an analysis of processes of regulation.
