Part 1 of the paper presents an analytical formulation of the design and performance of an a-c thermoelectric generator utilizing the periodic flow of heat across a surface, with the thermoelectric conductors in the form of deposited films or ribbons woven through a dielectric sheet. Part 2 formulates the efficiency of this type of a-c thermoelectric generator in a manner which will lead to payoff optimizations in accord with various application criteria.
