Abstract : A solar flat plate thermoelectric generator con sists of a collector plate with an optically selective coating, small size semiconductor thermoelements, a radiator plate and a support structure. Emphasis has been placed on a support structure concept designated as the integral reinforced plate in which radiator and collector plates are folded into self-supporting structures. A number of thermal cycling tests have been con ducted up to a maximum of 2000 cycles. (Author)
