Peltier Effect Heat Pump, Spice Model, Heat Sink
The purpose of this work is to develop and experimentally test a model for the Peltier effect heat pump for the transient simulation in Spice software. The proposed model uses controlled sources and lumped components and its parameters can be directly calculated from the manufacturer’s data-sheets. In order to validate this model, a refrigeration chamber was designed and fabricated by using the Peltier modules. The overall system was experimentally tested and simulated with Spice. The simulation results were found to be compatible with the experimental results. This model will help designers to better design thermal systems using the Peltier modules.
