  • Book on the hot topic of alternative energy generation
  • Represents the state-of-the-art in thermovoltaics which is expected to become as important as photovoltaics
  • Deals with thermovoltaics, a method for direct generation of electric energy from heat
  • The basics are clearly explained
  • Applications like energy production from waste heat recovery and concentrated solare power are the main focus of this book
  • Appeals to researchers in thermovoltaics and engineers in alternative energy generation alike
Thermophotovoltaics is the science and technology associated with the direct generation of electricity from high temperature heat. Potential applications include combined heat and power, portable and auxiliary power, radioisotope space power, industrial waste heat recovery and concentrated solar power. This book aims at serving as an introduction to the underlying theory, overview of present day components and system arrangements, and update of the latest developments in the field. The emphasis is placed on the understanding of the critical aspects of efficient thermophotovoltaic system design. The aim is to assist researchers in the field.
