  • Optimized thermal energy harvesters for water or air streams and solid surfaces to power applications with as little as 5 degree system temperature differences.
  • Thermal and electrical matching of system thermal resistances and electrical loads of the DC-DC converters results in cost effective, low couple count thermoelectric generators.

講演者の経歴 (Robin McCarty)

Robin McCarty joined Marlow in July 2007 after completing her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and is currently a Member of technical staff in Product and Process R&D. She has over seven years experience in the filed of thermoelectric and is currently developing more accurate thermoelectric device and system models as well as expanding Marlow's high temperature thermoelectric generator testing capabilities. Her system level perspective allows her to assess thermoelectric energy harvesting systems for wireless sensors, exhaust waste heat recovery, and co-generation by integrating thermoelectrics with other power generation, heating, and cooling systems. Her recent focus has been researching and developing thermoelectric devices and systems for powering wireless sensors.
