Abstract/Summary A mesoscale thermophotovoltaic (TPV) power generating system has been developed and described in this work. The system consists of a flow system for introducing fuel/air mixtures, a parallel-plate silicon combustor with porous media inserted and a gallium antimonide (GaSb) TPV circuit. Using the porous media effectively enhanced the combustion, increased the combustor surface temperature and extended the operational limits. Owing to the partially-transmissive property of the silicon wafer in the PV cell convertible band, the porous media at a high temperature also serves as a secondary emitter. Experimental results show that incorporation of the porous media leads to a significantly higher open circuit voltage and short circuit current at the same inlet mass flow rate, when compared to the combustor configuration without the porous media inserted.
