Title: THERMOELECTRIC GENERATING DEVICE AND GENERATING METHOD
Abstract:
A thermoelectric generating device (10) comprises: a tank (13) having a flow inlet (14) into which flows a first fluid, and a flow outlet (15) out of which the first fluid flows, the interior thereof being sealed; a tube-shaped thermoelectric element (11) that is arranged within the tank (13) and that is formed with through-passages (11D) through which flows a second fluid of different temperature than the first fluid; a pair of passage members (12) passing through the wall of the tank (13) but electrically insulated from the tank (13) that are formed with conductive sections extending to outside the tank (13) from the junction with the thermoelectric element (11) and that are formed with communicating channels (12A) connected with the ends of the thermoelectric element (11) and whereby the through-passages (11D) communicate with outside the tank (13); and leads (16) connected with a conductive section at the outside of the tank (13).
