Thermoelectric generator spacing


 Our current design uses 57 generators on a flat plane at approximately 500 degrees celsius. In terms of spacing, how close together can the generators be without burning eachother up? Does a formula exist for such calculation or a general rule of thumb to abide by?



Seek 600c TE device



I have been invited by a military Lab to look into  Thermoelectric technology  suitable for high ZT conversion of continuous 600c 10mw heat source to electric. Phase two will include continuous1200c at 10mw.

I come to this work from the heat source end. References on the TE aspect will be appreciated.    Thank you for any assisttance.
