A Comparison of Cooling Technologies
The flow of heat with the charge carriers in a thermoelectric
device, is very similar to the way that compressed refrigerant
transfers heat in a mechanical system. The circulating fluids in
the compressor system carry heat from the thermal load to the
evaporator where the heat can be dissipated. With TE technology, on
the other hand, the circulating direct current carries heat from
the thermal load to some type of heat sink which can effectively
discharge the heat into the outside environment.
Each individual thermoelectric system design will have a unique
capacity for pumping heat (in Watts or BTU/hour) and this will be
influenced by many factors. The most important variables are
ambient temperature, physical & electrical characteristics of
the thermoelectric module(s) employed, and efficiency of the heat
dissipation system (i.e., sink). Typical thermoelectric
applications will pump heat loads ranging from several milliwatts
to hundreds of watts.
