THERMOELECTRIC POWER GENERATION MODULES
(H-series in power generating mode)
Low Temperature Thermoelectric Power Generation Modules, also called Thermoelectric Generators, TEGs, have similar to TEMs design and utilize Seebeck effect, working vice versa to Peltier effect.
The electromotive force emerges in closed loop of two different conductors when junctions of conductors are maintained in different temperatures.
Crystal Ltd. recommends our H-series TEMs in power generating mode.
Applications: power supply for stand-alone sensors, low power energy harvesting system.
Thermoelectric generation bases on Seebeck’s effect, which consists in the fact that in electrical circuit consisting of different materials, connected in series, an electromotive force emerges when contacts are maintained at different temperatures.
Such circuit, composed of two different materials (semiconductors of n-and p-type conductivity), is called a thermocouple or a thermoelement. The device usually consists of tens or hundreds of thermoelements, connected in series.
Basing on demand for thermoelectric modules with hot junction temperature up to 150 °C, Crystal Ltd. manufactures a wide range of such modules.
Here are some of applications:
