  3. Photovoltaic cells integrated with thermoelectric coolers for critical electronic equipment cooling and thermal management of base camps

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT024

    Present thermoelectric devices operate at about 10% of the Carnot efficiency, whereas the efficiency of compressor-based refrigerators is larger than 30%. An increase in the thermoelectric figure of merit ZT above 3 is needed before thermoelectric technology can replace current air conditioning technologies in many applications. Recent models have predicted that ZT can reach 6 in metal/HgCdTe supe ...
