Abstract: A new microemitter (microcombustor) configuration for a micro thermophotovoltaic system in which thermal energy is directly converted into electrical energy through thermal radiation was investigated experimentally and computationally. The microemitter as a thermal heat source was designed for a 1-10 W power-generating micro thermophotovoltaic system. To satisfy the primary requirements for designing the microemitter (stable burning in the small confinement, maximum heat transfer through the emitting walls, b…
