PSPICE-Compatible Equivalent Circuit of Thermoelectric Cooler

  title={PSPICE-Compatible Equivalent Circuit of Thermoelectric Cooler},
  author={Simon Lineykin and Shmuel Sam Ben-Yaakov},
  journal={2005 IEEE 36th Power Electronics Specialists Conference},
The objective of this work was to develop a PSPICE-compatible equivalent circuit of a thermoelectric cooler (TEC). Equivalent circuits are convenient tools for power electronics engineers since they help in presenting a problem in electronic circuit terms and can assist in the design of power stages and the control circuitry and algorithms. A methodology is developed for extracting the parameters of the proposed model from manufacturers' data of TECs. The present model is compatible with PSPICE… CONTINUE READING
