  41. Recommendations • Introduction • Initial Model • Preliminary • Testing • TEC Tests • Controller Tests • Coil Tests • Leak Tests • Design • Modifications • Final Design • Final Results • Design Requirements • Budget • Conclusions • Recommendations • Acknowledgements • Questions • Improved cooling system for thermoelectric pads • Water towers would be better constructed to prevent all leaking. • If we had the money we would have purchased a single power supply, which would decrease weight and size. • No need for the power supply to go underneath the reservoir. • The water reservoir should be smaller (less volume of water) to allow for more cooling. • Stirring mechanism could be implemented.

  42. Recommendations • Introduction • Initial Model • Preliminary • Testing • TEC Tests • Controller Tests • Coil Tests • Leak Tests • Design • Modifications • Final Design • Final Results • Design Requirements • Budget • Conclusions • Recommendations • Acknowledgements • Questions • The unit needs improved insulation to prevent losses. • possible movement of TECs? • insulation around the cooling towers not needed • Thermoelectric materials would be permanently attached to both the water reservoir and the water towers. • Ideally the power would be an on/off button whereas ours is just a plug-in to turn it on situation.
