dc.description.abstractThe main objective of this paper is to study the thermal resistances of two components of a thermoelectric ice maker installed in a no-frost refrigerator, in order to optimize the ice production. This study is conducted via a computational model developed by the Thermal and Fluids Research Group from Public University of Navarre, explained and validated in previous papers. Firstly, three dissipaters with different space between fins are simulated using Computational Fluid Dynamics Fluent to study their influence on both the ice production and the performance of the refrigerator. The computational model predicts a maximum production of 2.82 kg/day of ice with less than 7 W of extra electric power consumption, though these values depend to a great extent on the cooling and freezing power of the refrigerator. Secondly, this work focuses on reducing the size of the components in order to save raw material and reduce the cost of the device. The computational model predicts that the last design produces 2.42 kg/day of ice, saves 65 % of raw material and reduces to the half the expenses assigned to the thermoelectric modules.en
