Thermoelectric Energy Generation Experiment


TEG generators on Jungfraujoch

The installation team: Lukas, Dominic and Jan

Following the development of an energy harvesting system for the PermaSense wireless sensor nodes in a Master Thesis by Dominic Bernath we installed the first prototype devices for a field test in Jungfraujoch, CH at the beginning of November 2016. These energy harvesters work on the thermolectric principle and harvest electric energy from the heat exchange between the rock surface and the atmosphere (radiation). Two devices were installed on the south flank near the High-Alpine Research Station Jungfraujoch and one on the north side down from the Sphinx terrace.2
