Promoting thermoelectric technology to mitigate global climate change
A fresh look at thermoelectric theory and the powerful impact of temperature dependency:
It seems like temperature dependency is largely treated as an inconvenient nuisance within thermoelectric (TE) theory. It is just one more obstacle that gets in the way of easier calculations. However, in Reframing Thermoelectric Fundamentals Within A Temperature Dependent Context, 30+ year TE veteran Michael Spry reveals how the codependency between thermal gradients and material properties, is the central fulcrum for bringing stability to TE systems. Rather than relying upon simple system-level averages or estimates for analysis, Spry uses innovative computer models to converge upon thermal gradients which deliver balanced energy levels throughout TE elements. The graphic profiles that are produced, show how loading and transport levels change hand-in-hand between material junctions. There is no more pretense that single effective property values can capture the energy interactions along the length. Most importantly, this leads to far more intuitive conceptual frameworks for TE operation and the property manifestations which make it possible. In the end, Reframing Thermoelectric Fundamentals . . . offers one of the most thorough treatments of thermoelectric theory to emerge in the history of TE science, surpassing a number of legacy works in its groundbreaking coverage. As a bonus, it also provides detailed descriptions of the algorithms which stand behind the computer models. Meticulous study of this book will substantially heighten the understanding of both neophytes and veterans in the field as the author breaks down and reshapes our view of TE operation. With nearly 200 pages of analysis and over 300 graphs and illustrations, the book provides a useful road map to the future of thermoelectrics. Introductory-priced to encourage readership--offered at the cost of a single technical paper or journal article--this book should not be missed by anyone who wants to work in the field.

High Merit Thermoelectrics (HMTE) is a thermoelectric (TE) device manufacturing company who offer devices that include an innovative, patent-pending material, called YMS, that out-performs competing materials, nearly quadrupling device efficiency. Our devices are long-lasting, compact, environmentally benign power sources that directly convert heat into electrical energy and can be utilized world-wide. Anywhere heat is produced, whether intentional or as a waste product of another process, our devices can be used to produce electricity.
We are currently seeking funding to support our final production level prototype, based on the extensive material testing that has been done.
