Abstract
Environment friendly solutions are becoming more prominent as a concern regarding the state of our deteriorating planet. This paper introduces a new method of Refrigeration system which removes heat from the space in order to bring it to a lower temperature than surrounding temperature. This system uses “Thermoelectric cooling module(TEC)”which works on thermoelectric refrigeration, aims to provide cooling by using thermoelectric effect which states that when D.C voltage is applied across two junctions of dissimilar electrical conductors, heat is absorbed from one junction and heat is rejected at another junction which creates a temperature difference. At the atomic scale, an applied temperature gradient causes charge carriers in the material to diffuse from the hot side to the cold side. This process does not require any compressor and refrigerants for the refrigeration process,which effectively reduces work input and power consumption.
