The influence of Thomson effect on the performance of thermoelectric generator-driven thermoelectric cooler device

The thermodynamic model of thermoelectric generatordriven thermoelectric cooler( TEG-TEC) device with Thomson effect is established. Performance of the device is analyzed by applying nonequilibrium thermodynamic theory and numerical calculation method.The influences of Thomson effect on the performance are analyzed by comparing the performance characteristics of models with and without Thomson effect. The results showed that,Thomson […]
