I am trying to solve a puzzle about selecting the right heat sink for my TEG, but I am really confused and lost with lots of equations. Here is the Specification of my TEG (TG12-2.5-01L)
- Module Width = 29.972 mm
- Module Length = 34.036 mm
- Module Height = 3.937 mm
- Max Temperature (Tmax) = 250 °C
- Th = 230 °C
- Tc = 50 °C
- Efficiency = 5.02 %
- Power = 2.71 W
- Open circuit voltage (Voc) = 9.56 V
- Thermal resistance = 3.33 °C/W
What I want to do is maintain a temperature difference of max 50 °C. So in order to do this I need to have a good heat Sink which will radiate the heat in the air faster. So how can I calculate which heat sink I actually need? What do I need in order to calculate this? Which heat sink is the best and how do I know if it is good or bad?
Any information related to this will be really helpful.
