While science underlying thermoelectrics is quite complex, in this tool you will find an initial perspective of one of the main applications of a thermoelectric cooler by keeping most of the intrincacies apart. And although an explanation of the formulas and the code embedded in this tool is provided in it’s respective manual, it has to be noted that these are only approximations to what it actually happens, while it is a good example of a real life case, which is the objective of the tool.

This tool is presented with a step by step guide on how to use the tool, as well as interpret the outputs.
