Abstract
The purpose of this study was to develop a cooler/heater using a thermoelectric module combined with a parallel flow type pulsating heat pipe with R-142b as a working fluid. The experiment was performed for 16 thermoelectric modules (6A/15V, size: $40\times40\times4mm$), varying design parameters of the heat pipe (inclination angle, working fluid charging ratio, etc.). Experimental results indicate that the optimum charging ratio and the inclination angle of the parallel flow type pulsating heat pipe were $30\%$ by volume and $30^{\circ}$, respectively. The maximum cooler/heater capacity were 479 W (COP: 0.47) and 630 W (COP: 0.9), respectively.
