  • Design and thermal modeling of a portable fuel fired cylindrical TPV Battery Replacement

    ABSTRACT: A novel portable fliel fired cylindrical themiophotovoltaic batteiy charger is described. It uses an array of GaSb TPV cells along with a novel Omega recuperator design and a novel IR emitter design. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) calculations are presented for this TPV cylinder design showing the potential for an overall fuel to electricity conversion efficiency of 10.9%. The ...

  • Design of a Matched IR Emitter for a Portable propane fired TPV Power System

    ABSTRACT: The design of an IR emitter is described for use with a small portable cylindrical ThermoPhotoVoltaic (TPV) generator. The IR emitter consists of a cylindrical array of 1 to 2 mm diameter ceramic rods. The spacing between these rods is chosen such that slits are formed between the rods with a slit width equal to about 1/10* of the rod diameter. Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) modeling ...

  • Adapting TPV for Use in a Standard Home Heating Furnace

    Abstract, A novel TPV configuration will be presented that can fit into a standard home furnace cabinet. This system incorporates an externally faceted glass cylinder with a dichroic filter deposited on its outer surface and a GaSb IR cell array bonded to the outer surface on top of the filter. This cylindrical array is then surrounded with an envelope containing a low boiling point liquid for ...
