Originální abstrakt

The paper describes the possibilities of energy harvesting using thermoelectric generators. Because of very low output voltage thermoelectric generators need integration of large number of individual thermo-junctions. Printing technologies enhance effective production with individual junctions all connected in series. Lateral structure require an easy process to print nevertheless it suffers from the internal resistance of the thermoelectric materials. In case of vertical design, the total resistance is smaller but the efficiency is limited by thermal conductivity of used materials. A combined structure with lateral arrangement of short thermo-coupler legs placed in double-layer of thermal insulator and the heat flow perpendicular to the thermo-coupler matrix brings together advantages of both types.
