Modeling and Optimization of Thermoelements by a Combined Analytical and Numerical Method
2014 (English)In: Journal of Electronic Materials, ISSN 0361-5235, E-ISSN 1543-186X, Vol. 43, no 2, 404-413 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A combined analytical and numerical process has been developed to model and optimize thermoelements. In this way, the performance of commercial n- and p-type thermoelectric materials can be optimized to deliver the maximum output power and conversion efficiency. The validity of the method is demonstrated using a silicon germanium unicouple.
