Efficiency of inhomogeneous thermoelectric generators
MetadataShow full item record
We revisit the classical problem of the efficiency of inhomogeneous thermoelectric generators. The effects of different physical parameters on the effciency of a generator are studied by solving the Domenicaliﾒs equation numerically. It is found that the efficiency of a thermoelectric generator is insensitive to both the electrical resistivity and thermal conductivity. However, the efficiency of a thermoelectric generator can be improved by various designs of the Seebeck coefficient
