In such applications, attaining high TPV efficiency is not essential since the waste heat for the TPV conversion process is completely utilized. But if the wave frequency increases wavelength decreases from Zcpthe reflectivity becomes less than one. Once the Rnergy matrix for each layer is established, then matrix multiplication will yield the matrix M, which can be used in equation 4.

Therefore, to n L 1. However, as stated earlier in Section 1. Chapter 1 76 1.

Fundamentals of Thermophotovoltaic Energy Conversion (eBook)

Extinction coefficient data for all the rare earths shown in Table 3. It is also assumed that the scattering is the same in all directions isotropic scattering. Fundamentals of Thermophotovoltaic Energy Conversion eBook.

Thus at all r thermopjotovoltaic conduction and radiation fluxes balance. However, their directions are perpendicular to k. The imaginary part of the index of refraction is a measure of the absorptance of a material. In calculating the optical properties, the tangential E and H fields are also required to calculate the intensity from the Poynting vector [equation 1.


Similarly, the real and imaginary parts of the index of refraction, nR and nI, and the reflectivity, Rare determined by the single variable, u, and the parameters, up 1 and Hf. Several of the important results from electromagnetic wave propagation and radiation transfer are the following. Problem sets are included at the end of each chapter.

This approach has been proposed by Demichelis, et al. Modelle Anatomische Modelle Somso-Modelle. Derivations of the equation of transfer thermopjotovoltaic given in several texts [16], [18].

Thus platinum is a more efficient emitter than an emitter consisting of EAG on a platinum substrate. An intensive property is independent of the dimensions of the material. The emitted power, dqE, per unit area and wavelength within the solid angle dZ is given by equation 1.

Also, an uneven surface can be approximated as a series of flat specular surfaces.

The useful power is a monotonically increasing function of R. Experimental results for R for Z o f are finite, therefore justifying the approximation, Hf! In addition, make the critical assumption that all the radiation leaving the emitter goes directly to the PV cells and all radiation leaving the PV cells goes directly to the emitter. Mathematica programs for calculating optical properties of interference filters and planar TPV system performance included on CD-Rom” This is a text book presenting the fundamentals of thermophotovoltaic TPV energy conversion suitable for an upper undergraduate or first year graduate conversiin.


Broman, Process in Photovoltaics: However, for selective emitters where extinction coefficients are not as large, the emitted radiation originates from significant distances from the surface.

The cobalt ion with seven 3d valence electrons is responsible for the emission band. Since the emission process really does depend upon dimensions, only the term emittance is used in cnoversion text. Interference of plane waves can be demonstrated in the following manner.

Therefore, referring to Figure 1. For up d 0. Each of these components is in the solid state with only the PV cells and possibly the filter being a somewhat complex solid state device.
