Summary

In this paper, the theoretical analysis and simulating calculation were conducted for a basic two-stage thermoelectric module, which contains one thermocouple in the second stage and several thermocouples in the first stage. The study focused on the configuration of the two-stage thermoelectric module, especially investigating the influences of some parameters, such as the allocation of the junction temperature difference in the module, the length of thermocouples and the number of thermocouples, on the cooling performance of the module. The obtained analysis results indicate that changing the junction temperature difference in the second stage, the length of thermocouples and the number of thermocouples in the first stage can improve the cooling performance of the module. These results can be used to optimize the configuration of the two-stage thermoelectric module, and provide guides for the design and application of the thermoelectric cooler.
