Descripción
Thermophotovoltaics (TPV) and thermionics (TI) are the two main technologies enabling the conversion of heat directly into electricity at very high temperatures. In this work we present a new concept that hybridizes both technologies in a single device. This device is named hybrid thermionic-photovoltaic converter (TIPV) and takes advantage of the simultaneous emission of electrons and photons from an incandescent surface. The use of these two energy carriers simultaneously results in an increased heat flux and electrical power density, which will ultimately result in a lower cost of produced electricity. These converters are currently under development within the EU-funded project AMADEUS (www.amadeus-project.eu), which aims at the development of a new kind of ultra high temperature (>1000ºC) thermal energy storage systems based on molten silicon. At these very high temperatures, radiation is the main heat transfer mechanism; thus, thermionic- and thermophotovoltaic-based devices are the ideal choice. Molten silicon storage plus TIPV conversion has the potential to lead to a new generation of very compact storage devices with one of the highest energy and power densities among the current energy storage options.
