Effects of Cooling Methods on Temperature of Thermoelectric Generators

Zongzheng Ma and Yongchang Yu

In order to achieve the energy recovery of the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) cooling system using the Thermoelectric Generation (TEG) technology, one test bed for studying the temperature of TEG is established then the relationship between the temperature and cooling methods is researched based on this test bed. The results show that the cooling effect improves with the increase of fan speed which is installed in the vertical direction of the radiator, but the cooling effect is no longer improved at a certain value of the speed because of the pressure loss. And it also indicate the forced air cooling is better than the natural convection cooling method which can effectively reduce the temperature of the cold end of TEG while has little effect on hot end.
