Title: Identification & Control of Thermo-Electric-Coolers

By Rob van Gils, Sr. Technologist / Competence Leader Thermal & Flow, Philips Innovation Services.

Consumer electronics, and professional equipment alike, become increasingly reliant upon the ability for precise thermal management. As such, thermal control is gaining more attention in the fields of product design and (high) precision engineering. Thermo-electric coolers (TEC) or Peltier elements can be used both for heating and for cooling, making them ideal as thermal actuators. In this presentation, two identification methodologies (white vs black box) are discussed that allow for efficient modelling of the peltier thermo-dynamics. Furthermore, control of a setup with two individually controllable TECs will be extensively discussed.

We will start at 12:03pm on April 12.
