Abstract

Design of thermoelectric modules based on Mg2Si alloy is presented here. Mg2Si based TE material has highest specific figure of merit (ZT/ρ) thus best suited for airborne applications. The cost of Mg2Si based TE modules are much lower than that of super latticed based TE materials and their modules.
