Title:
THERMOELECTRIC CONVERSION DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/082445
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A thermoelectric conversion device (1) is provided with: a plurality of first electrodes (7); a plurality of thermoelectric conversion elements (5, 6) that are electrically connected, at one ends thereof, to the respective first electrodes; a plurality of second electrodes (8) that are electrically connected to the other ends of the respective thermoelectric conversion elements; a high-temperature medium passage (2) that is connected to the first electrodes; and a low-temperature medium passage (3) that is connected to the second electrodes, wherein a plurality of springs (15) are positioned at parts connected to the first electrodes or the second electrodes within one of the high-temperature medium passage and the low-temperature medium passage, one spring is disposed so as to bias one thermoelectric conversion element, one of the passages is provided with a transmission unit (14) that can transmit the biasing force of one spring to one thermoelectric conversion element, in a part connected to one of the first or second electrodes. Accordingly, a thermoelectric conversion device that can perform efficient conversion between heat and electricity is provided.
