P14254: Underwater Thermoelectric Power Generation


Table of Contents


Concept Generation

Benchmarking & Research contains some links to literature about thermoelectric systems. They can be used to aid in concept generation.


Reggie came up with some ideas for the enclosure, mostly focused on how to clamp the thermoelectrics. (Clamping is needed to ensure good heat transfer) Reggie's Enclosure Ideas

Systems Diagrams

To help visualize the interactions within the system, we created system views from a hardware, thermal, electrical, and data acquisistion standpoint.

The hardware view is also available as HardwareTree.docx.

Morphological Analysis

We constructed a morph chart and performed a Pugh analysis. The current version is available here.
