Abstract
RCT Systems proposes a Thermoelectric Scalable Power Generator (TSPG) design capable of>300 Watts, operating continuous at 28 VDC in a package weighing<22 Lb, based on a thermoelectric generator combusting gaseous (propane) and liquid (JP-8/DF-2) fuels. High ZT (>1.5) nanostructure thermoelectric materials are utilized. An embedded processor controls combustion, power management and DC/DC conversion. Design consideration of heat signature, noise, vibration, RF, smoke, ruggedness, operational safety and portability in land based locations are included.
