Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR WIRELESS POWER TRANSFER USING THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE TRANSFERT D'ÉNERGIE SANS FIL UTILISANT DES GÉNÉRATEURS THERMOÉLECTRIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A TEG system is attached to a rotating shaft and generates electricity from radiant energy that is substantially radiatively transmitted through the atmosphere from a stationary source to the TEG system that is rotating with the shaft. The rotation of the shaft provides cooling to the TEG system, but not heat energy. The TEG system includes at least one TEG, each TEG equipped with an energy receiving and heat containment window and an energy conversion system in combination with controlled convection cooling enhanced by an airflow moving in response to the rotation of the rotating shaft. Individual TEGs having controlled convection cooling also are described.
(FR)
Un système de générateur(s) thermoélectrique(s) TEG est fixé à un arbre rotatif et génère de l'électricité à partir d'énergie rayonnante qui est transmise de manière sensiblement rayonnante dans l'atmosphère par une source stationnaire, au système TEG qui est en rotation avec l'arbre. La rotation de l'arbre fournit un refroidissement au système TEG, mais pas d'énergie thermique. Le système TEG comprend au moins un TEG, chaque TEG étant équipé d'une fenêtre de réception d'énergie et de confinement de chaleur et d'un système de conversion d'énergie combinés au refroidissement par convection contrôlée perfectionné par un flux d'air se déplaçant en réponse à la rotation de l'arbre rotatif. L'invention concerne également des TEGs individuels à refroidissement par convection contrôlée.
