    that actually kind of answered another question i had: i noticed that parallel branches maintained the same CoP across branches (maintaining the same serial circuits of course)

    again: thanks for...

    i calculated at dT 20 - which gave CoP of 1 with 2 legs of 3 each for 192 Qmax and power draw. i guess you might have inefficiencies in the power supply and whatnot, so actual might be "slightly" off...

    real quick:

    in my calculations i'm seeing that CoP remains constant across parallel branches - Qmax and Pinput go up at the same rate for each added leg. is that right? (ie: 2 legs doubles power...

    yea - i figured that out yesterday, and spent a bit of time recalculating my figures. i was completely forgetting the proper usage of Mr. Ohm's Laws. i was not taking total resistance of the serial...

    OK, i get it now (i think):

    with the 400W TEC linked above i can keep a 395W heat source at room temperature (0dT), or i can cool a 130W source to 50C below room temp (50dT) (or anywhere in...

    tell me if these numbers are pretty close for 4 of these in series at dT 20C ($200):

    4 in series with 12V input would...

    i thought at Qmax (and Imax/Vmax/Pmax) - basically, with everything maxed out - is the only way to achieve the full dT? to get to the potential dT you have to max out the TEC's voltage and current...

    that's what i dont understand: the total input voltage is Vmax. same thing for the Imax. your input voltage/current would still be Imax/Vmax - that's why i was saying the total dT would still be the...

    i had a thought (i know - never a good thing :): 16 TECs in a 4x4 par/ser config. if i remember ohms law correctly this would effectively cause each TEC to operate at 25% voltage and current - and...
