A Thermoelectric Generator Manufacture Research Based on Oscillating-Flow Heat Pipe Technology


Oscillating heat pipe is a new type of heat transfer. It not only has simple structure, non-pollution and low maintenance cost, but also has high heat transfer efficiency. Semiconductor thermoelectric generation technology is also an environmental technology. This article combines these two kinds of technology. By means of this generate electricity way, we make a set of system and the related experiment. Then we do some research on the feasibility of this system.
