title = "Characterization of a thermoelectric generator at low temperatures",

abstract = "A Bi2Te3 based thermoelectric power generator (TEG) is experimentally characterized at low temperatures (100-300 K) by measuring the quantities of voltage, current, temperature difference and heat flux. Temperature dependencies of Seebeck coefficient, electrical and heat conductivities are experimentally determined and figure of merit is calculated. For a given temperature difference, the variation of maximum power with the mean temperature is analytically examined for the temperature range of 100-420 K by using experimentally measured material properties. The results can be used for low applications of TEGs since there are only a few studies on low characterization of TEGs in the literature.",
