Heat Conduction in an Energy-Generating Slab Subject to a Nonuniform Heat Transfer Coefficient

Thermoelectric coolers are utilized along the periphery of a Bipolar plate in a Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell to cool the adjacent Membrane Exchange Assemblies (MEAs) where the majority of the waste heat is generated. These solidstate microcoolers (MICs) can be built in many configuration...
