Defining Solid Components
Multi-Part Solid models require you to add the Solids component materials. Select three materials and
its Material properties as per the table given below. Rename material as Bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) ,Copper
+ve and Copper -ve respectively.
|Properties||Bi2Te3||Copper +ve||Copper -ve|
|Electrical Conductivity (S/m)||1.1e5||5.96E8||5.96E8|
|Thermal Conductivity (W/m-K)||1.6||350||350|
|Specific Heat (J/kg-K)||154.4||385.0||385.0|
|Seebeck Coefficient (V/K)||2.0E-4||6.5E-6||-6.5E-6|
•The bottom electrode surface is held at 0°C while the top electrode and the lateral surfaces are thermally insulated.
•The bottom electrode is electrically grounded at 0 V.
•The total inward electric current through the top electrode is 0.7 A.
•The lateral surfaces are electrically insulated.
The current circulating in the thermoelectric device is responsible for the cooling effect as sheen below in temperature field. A temperature difference of nearly ~61°C is achieved.
• Electric Potential in the thermoelectric device. The voltage at the upper electrode is ~50 mV.
• Electric field
• Temperature and Electric potential along the length of thermoelectric cooler (Line probe)
