thermometric generator modules series + parallel = amplify?

Post by horizon9 » Dec 14, 2016 5:05 pm

i was wonder if connecting thermoeletric generators in series and parallel would amplify the wattage output more than if the same amount of modules were all used just in series or just in parallel?

or some compounding of multiple series and parallel batches?

No. Power is in watts, which is the product of volts x amps.

so will 5 modules in series put in parallel with 5 other modules in series out put more watts than 10 modules in series or 10 in parallel?

No, 5S2P or 10S or 10P are all ten modules just arranged differently. The total output either way is 10x the power rating (watts) of a single module.
