Thermoelectric converter unit turns natural energy into electricity, streamlining operations
An analysis of the results of previous studies given in [19] shows that the problems of this process optimization, e.g., a search for optimum functions providing extreme cooling, were solved only for the simplest physical models of thermoelectric converters. This is due to the complexity of mathematical model of the transient cooling process, which is described by partial differential equations with the boundary conditions specified by the physical model of the thermoelectric converter and the mode of its operation.
The power factor is an important thermoelectric parameter, which determines the property of thermoelectric converter. It can be calculated according to the Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity.
