Modelling and simulation of a thermoelectric structure with pellets of non-standard geometry and materials
Rights accessOpen Access
The aim of this paper is to develop and manufacture a thermoelectric structure operating in Peltier mode with non-standard materials, using a Finite Element Model. Thus, both the reliability of the Finite Element Model and the correct development and design of the new thermoelectric structure are ascertained, achieving a dual goal of our research group. This work provides a very good correlation between simulated and experimental results, and corroborates that the material’s performance has a decisive influence on the thermoelectric properties of the structure in the temperature range of study considered.
