Abstract : A method is presented to characterize the performance capability of flame heated thermoelectric converters, relating output power, long term operation, and inherent degrading factors. Experimental verification of the method is shown through data obtained on two thermopiles from 500 watt thermoelectric generators (PP-6075( )/U). Performance parameter characterization of the two thermopiles is reported. (Author)
