Title (EN) THERMAL ENERGY TO ELECTRICAL ENERGY EXTRACTION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'EXTRACTION D'ÉNERGIE THERMIQUE EN ÉNERGIE ÉLECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A thermal energy to electrical energy extraction system which includes: a thermoelectric converter, for converting thermal energy into electrical energy, the thermoelectric convertor being connectable to a thermal energy source; an electric conditioner connectable to the thermoelectric converter for conditioning the electric energy output of the thermoelectric converter and generating a conditioned electrical output; a measuring means for measuring the electric energy within the system; and a controller for controlling the thermoelectric converter in order to vary the conditioned electrical output based on the measurements obtained from the measuring means.
(FR) Un système d'extraction d'énergie thermique en énergie électrique comprend : un convertisseur thermoélectrique, pour convertir l'énergie thermique en énergie électrique, le convertisseur thermoélectrique pouvant être connecté à une source d'énergie thermique ; un conditionneur électrique pouvant être connecté au convertisseur thermoélectrique pour conditionner la puissance électrique du convertisseur thermoélectrique et générer une puissance électrique conditionnée ; un moyen de mesure pour mesurer l'énergie électrique à l'intérieur du système ; et un dispositif de commande pour commander le convertisseur thermoélectrique afin de faire varier la puissance électrique conditionnée sur la base des mesures obtenues à partir du moyen de mesure.
