Abstract : Thermoelectric power converters for space applications are grouped into four types according to the method of heat transport: a 'dry' system in which the hot and cold junctions are in direct contact with the heat source and the radiator; a single loop system with a hot heat transfer agent; and a single loop system with a cold heat transfer agent and a two-loop system.
