That's even better. That program of yours is great Muffy - thank you. Those results are better than expected. I didn't realize you could achieve a 25C delta at below 6V per TEC.
I'll have to play around with that program for a while.
As for a $200 phase-change setup: I'm merely referring to converted A/C chillers.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16896767748
- I'm interested in this 5200 BTU unit which can be found for $130-$180 (Walmart had it last I checked). I was thinking about using it as a dual-role A/C and water-chiller (I have a design configuration in mind).
However, some people do this inexpensively. I've seen build logs wherein people have assembled used A/C chillers for as little as $50, including materials.
Edit: Hmm... your website has Beta 2.4, but your screenshot shows Beta 3? Am I using the wrong download link for your TEC simulator?
Edit 2: hehe... now playing around with the numbers, I realize that I can use a TEC-chiller as an air-conditioner as well if I just duct the hot-loop air outside (or run the line through the wall). I have until late Spring or early Summer to think about this (when I'm going to want A/C).
Edit 3: Sorry, I realize I'm de-railing the thread. That's the last of it. But I DO WANT to see real world numbers from this project Edited by Archmage - 10/26/10 at 11:38pm
