Model Building and Simulation of Thermoelectric Module Using Matlab/Simulink


This paper presents implementations and verification of models of thermoelectric cooler and generator modules using Matlab/Simulink. The proposed models are designed with a user-friendly icon and a dialog box, like Simulink block libraries, making them easy to use for simulation, analysis, and optimization of further applications.
