Thermoelectricity is the direct or spontaneous conversion of heat into electrical energy. In , Jean Charles Peltier (–) observed that, when an electric current was passed through two different metallic conductors connected in a loop, one of the two junctions between the conductors cooled while the other warmed. Abstract. The thermoelectric power in intermetallic compounds UNi 5-x Cu x of the cubic AuBe 5 structure type and in UX 3 (X=A1, Ga, In, Si, Ge, Sn) of the cubic Cu 3 Au structure type has been measured between 5 and K. The interpretation of the thermopower in UNi 5-x Cu x is given in terms of an s-d band model for the range 0 ≤ x Author: H. J. van Daal, K. H. J. Buschow, P. B. van Aken. The thermoelectric effect is the direct conversion of temperature differences to electric voltage and vice versa via a thermocouple. Thermoelectric devices create a voltage when there is a different temperature on each side. Conversely, when a voltage is applied to it, heat is transferred from one side to the other, creating a temperature difference. is to lay down a foundation for a thermodynamic theory of stress-coupled thermoelectric effects (piezo-thermoelectricity), motivated largely by Thomson’s pioneering experiments on the effect of tensile stress on metallic wires [34] and the subsequent works of Bridgman [2]andHall[16] dealing with pressure effects on thermoelectricity.

On the Thermoelectricity of W. Thomson: T owards a Theory T o make the point clear, let us assign a definite spatial orientation with Cartesian coordi- nates, according to A, C, H → x, y, z Author: Joe Goddard. Fig. shows a composed of a bimetallic couple metal wires “a” and “b” with one junction maintained at temperature T and the other maintained at T + electromotive force E causes a current I to pass through the wires. A Peltier heat q Pe (T + dT) per unit current will be absorbed at the warm junction and an amount of heat q Pe (T) will be given off at the cool junction. A thermocouple is composed of two wires made from dissimilar metals. These two wires are joined to form a temperature measurement junction. Each wire is made of a specific metal or metal alloy. For example, the positive (+) conductor of a type K thermocouple is made of a chromium/nickel alloy called chromel and the negative (-) conductor is made of an aluminum/nickel alloy called alumel. in the literature on thermoeleetricity. The book by D. K. C. MacDonald, Thermoelectricity: An Introduction to the Principles, Wiley, , considers the theory and thermoelectric behavior of alloys below their characteristic temperatures.
