Title: SP-100 Thermoelectric Cell Testing at JPL
Authors: Ewell, R.
Zoltan, A.
Issue Date: 7-Aug-1994
Citation: Monterey, California, USA
Abstract: Three prototypic SP-100 thermoelectric cells, fabricated by Martin Marietta Astro Space in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, were tested in vacuum at prototypic temperatures at JPL. Their thermal and electrical performance were characterized with 200, 300, 400, and 500 degree Celsius temperature gradients across the cell. The latter was representative of prototypic operating conditions with a 1050 degree Celsius hot side temperature and a 550 degree Celsius cold side temperature. The initial thermal and electrical performance of all three cells closely matched predictions.
