The NEEDS thermoelectric compact model (TEsegment.va) describes a homogeneous segment of thermoelectric material and serves as a basic building block for complex electrothermal system. This work is derived from Kyle Conrad’s thesis.
The compact model has three sets of terminal pairs (or ports). The compact model, at its heart, is a simple linear resistor between the electrical port. To calculate the thermal effects, we also need to know the temperature at each electrical contact. Thus, there are two additional ports for temperatures.
Build-in effects include the electrical and thermal resistances, Seebeck and Peltier effects, Joule heating, and heat capacitances.
