原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)A reflective cavity with elliptical cross-section is proposed to couple a burner to three arrays of thermophotovoltaic (TPV) cells. Burner and photoconverter, with triangular section, are located near the two foci of the ellipse. The elliptical cavity is designed to be inserted into a thermo-electric micro-cogenerator for residential use, which exploits the TPV cells to convert visible and infrared radiation generated by the burner into electricity. Taking into account the key construction constraints, several cavity configurations, which differ for components or optical properties, are analysed by ray tracing simulations. The maximum radiation collection efficiency is 62% for the elliptical cavity and is reduced to 48% by introducing quartz protections around the burner and...
