Peltier devices have two sides with two different temperatures when an electrical current is applied through it. In the hot side, heat is dissipated and in the cool side, heat is absorbed, requiring additional electrical current to decrease heat absorption, primarily in hot climates. In this work, a block model was design with a Simulink tool of Matlab software to analyze thermal performance of a Peltier module in hot-imitate climate at different electric current levels. Through this model, it would be possible to evaluate the operating conditions of different control systems for Peltier applications, such as energy optimization in human thermal comfort devises, for sports, mobility, and medical care applications.
