Abstract

A comparison study of the use of two different heat removal units was conducted to examine the performance of thermoelectric cooler box. The heat removal units employed were a heat sink fin-fan and a double fan heat pipe. Parameters measured as performance indicators are cooling capacity, temperature differences, and COP. In addition, the effect of electrical power on temperature difference and COP was also investigated. The cooler box size is 285 mm x 245 mm x 200 mm and constructed from styrofoam. The results show that there is no difference of the use of a double fan heat pipe or a heat sink fin-fan on the cooler box performances. The Carnot COP decreases with the time, while the experimental COP increases with the time then it is constant after the steady condition has been achieved. Increasing the power decreases the COP but increases the temperature difference.
