【0006】 [0006]

【課題を解決するための手段】上記第1の目的を達成する第1の手段は、互いに電気的に接続したペルチェ素子,上記ペルチェ素子の間に充填した断熱材,上記ペルチェ素子の高温側と低温側の両方または片方に電気絶縁体を介して装着した熱良導体とで断熱壁を構成し、冷蔵庫の一部にこの断熱壁を用いることにある。 First means for achieving the above first object, according order to achieve the above, Peltier elements are electrically connected to each other, insulation material filled between said Peltier element, and the high-temperature side of the Peltier element both or one of the low temperature side through the electrical insulator to constitute a heat insulating wall and a good heat conductor mounted, in using the heat insulating wall in a part of the refrigerator.

【0007】上記第1の目的を達成する第2の手段は、 [0007] second means of achieving the first object,
冷蔵庫において、断熱壁の一部を互いに電気的に接続したペルチェ素子に置き換え、上記ペルチェ素子に通電することにより、冷蔵庫内の熱もしくは冷蔵庫に入ってくる熱を断熱壁(冷蔵庫)の表面へ送り、断熱壁表面の熱を自然対流により放熱することにある。 In the refrigerator, replacing a portion of the insulating wall to the Peltier element that is electrically connected to each other, by energizing to the Peltier element, it sends the heat coming into the heat or refrigerator in the refrigerator to the surface of the heat insulating wall (refrigerator) is to heat radiation by natural convection heat insulating wall surface.

【0011】 [0011]

【作用】公知技術において、内容積が狭められたのは、 In the [action] known in the art, the internal volume has been narrowed,
放熱用のファンとラジエータを用いたことによる。 Due to the fact that using the fan and the radiator for heat dissipation. これらを用いなければ、その分、冷蔵庫の内容積は大きくなるが、ペルチェ素子から十分に放熱できないため、冷蔵庫内の冷却は難しい。 Without the use of these, correspondingly, although the internal volume of the refrigerator is increased, can not be sufficiently dissipated from the Peltier device, it is difficult cooled in the refrigerator. 例えば、典型的なペルチェ素子であるBi−Te系モジュール(厚さ5mm)により、ペルチェ素子の低温側を4℃程度に保持しようとすると、1m For example, the typical Bi-Te-based module is a Peltier element (thickness 5 mm), when you try to hold the cold side of the Peltier element to approximately 4 ° C., 1 m
2当たり2000W程度の熱をペルチェ素子の高温側(温度30℃)から放熱する必要がある。 It is necessary to radiate about 2 per 2000W heat from the hot side of the Peltier element (temperature 30 ° C.). ペルチェ素子の高温側と気温との温度差を10℃とすると、高温側に貯まった熱を自然対流の様な静的手段では放熱できない。 When the temperature difference between the hot side and the temperature of the Peltier element to 10 ° C., can not radiating a static means, such as a natural convection heat accumulated in the high temperature side.

【0012】一方、第1の発明によれば、ペルチェ素子の高温側に集まる熱エネルギを熱良導体によって分散でき、自然対流の様な静的手段での放熱を可能にする。 Meanwhile, according to the first invention, the heat energy to gather the hot side of the Peltier element can be distributed by the thermally conductive to allow heat dissipation in static means, such as natural convection. 例えば、図2は断熱材の体積の1/40をペルチェ素子とした場合の、放熱に必要な熱伝達率の解析結果である。 For example, Figure 2 is the case where the 1/40 of the volume of the heat insulating material and a Peltier device, an analysis result of the heat transfer coefficient required for heat dissipation.
断熱壁の厚さが24mmの場合、熱伝達率は5W/m2K程度になる。 If the thickness of the heat insulating wall is 24 mm, the heat transfer rate becomes approximately 5W / m2K. この結果、自然対流により放熱できることを意味する。 As a result, it means that can be dissipated by natural convection.

【0013】従って、本発明の構成にすれば放熱用のファン,ラジエータが不要であるので、公知技術に比べて、内容積の大きい冷却システムを構成できる。 [0013] Thus, a fan for heat dissipation if the configuration of the present invention, since the radiator is not required, as compared to the prior art, can be constructed large cooling system having an inner volume. また、 Also,
可動部がないため、騒音が生じることはない。 Because there is no movable part, never noise occurs. さらに、 further,
断熱壁の表面(冷却システムの表面)全体から放熱することも可能で、周囲に障害物が存在しても全体的な冷却能力への影響は少ないため、設置あるいは使用上の制約は少ない。 It is also possible to dissipate heat from the entire surface (the surface of the cooling system) of the heat insulating wall, since little impact on the overall even if there is an obstacle cooling capacity to ambient, installation or use constraints is small.

【0014】第2の発明によれば、ペルチェ素子のn型からp型へ電気を通電すると接合部Aで吸熱が起き、接合部Bで発熱が起こり、その結果、冷蔵庫内部の熱はペルチェ素子で熱良導体へ運ばれ、熱の良導体の面方向に拡散し、放熱される。 [0014] According to the second invention, the endothermic happened from n-type Peltier element and energized electricity to p-type at the junction A, an exothermic at the junction B, the result, refrigerator internal heat the Peltier element in conveyed to the heat conductor, diffused in the surface direction of the heat conductor, it is radiated. この発明の場合も、公知技術に比べ、内容積が大きく、可動部を含まず、設置あるいは使用に周囲の構造物の影響を受けにくい冷蔵庫を提供できる。 In the case of this invention, as compared to the prior art, a large internal volume, not including the movable portion can provide less susceptible refrigerator influence of surrounding structure in the installation or use.

【0015】第3の発明によれば、断熱壁面からの放熱量を増加できるため、断熱材及びペルチェ素子から成る壁の厚さを薄くしても、冷却部を所定の温度に保持できるため、内容積がさらに大きい冷却システムあるいは冷蔵庫を構成できる。 According to the third invention, it is possible to increase the amount of heat radiated from the heat insulating wall, even when the thickness of the wall of insulating material and the Peltier element, it is possible to hold the cooling unit to a predetermined temperature, internal volume can constitute a larger cooling system or a refrigerator.

【0016】第4の発明では、冷蔵庫内がある程度の温度に下がれば、一般に障害物のないドア側の冷却断熱板への投入電力量を増やす、あるいは、ユーザが使用環境に合わせて、放熱面をあらかじめ選定し、その面への投入電力を相対的に大きくするなどの操作が可能である。 [0016] In the fourth invention, if Sagare inside within certain temperature refrigerator, generally increasing the input power amount to the cooling heat insulating plate of the door-side unobstructed, or in accordance with the user environment of use, the heat radiating surface previously selected, it is possible to operations such as relatively large electric power applied to the surface.
従って、冷却ユニットあるいは冷蔵庫の周辺へ熱が停留することを防止できる。 Therefore, it is possible to prevent the heat is stationary to the cooling unit or refrigerator around. このことは、本発明が設置あるいは使用に周囲の構造物の影響を受けにくい、あるいは柔軟に対応できることを意味する。 This means that the present invention is less susceptible to surrounding structure for installation or use, or flexible response.

【0017】第5の発明も、第1および第2の発明と同様の理由により、内容積が大きく、可動部を含まず、冷蔵庫の設置あるいは使用に周囲の構造物の影響を受けにくい冷蔵庫を提供できる。 The fifth invention also, the first and second inventions and for similar reasons, large internal volume, not including the movable portion, refrigerator installation or less susceptible refrigerator influence of surrounding structure in use It can be provided. また、冷却断熱壁を厚くすれば、冷却側の温度を低下できるため、冷凍機能も付与できる。 Furthermore, if thicker cooling heat insulating wall, since it is possible to lower the temperature of the cooling side, the refrigeration function can also be imparted.

【0019】例えば、断熱壁の厚さを25mmとし、性能指数0.002 のペルチェ素子を用い、ペルチェ素子の体積を断熱材の1/40にすると1m 2当たり5ないし10Wの電力を投入することにより、気温20℃の条件で低温側温度を4℃に保持できる。 [0019] For example, it the thickness of the heat insulating wall and 25 mm, using a Peltier device performance index 0.002, for 5 to per 1 m 2 when 1/40 insulation volume of the Peltier element charged with electric power 10W the can hold the lower side temperature to 4 ° C. under conditions of temperature 20 ° C..

【0020】本発明は、断熱壁の一部をペルチェにより置き換える構成のため、冷却機能も備えた可動部のない断熱壁が構成でき、これを用いると、内容積が大きく、 The present invention, due to the configuration to replace a Peltier part of the insulating wall, the cooling function can also heat insulating wall construction with no moving parts with, the use of this, a large internal volume,
可動部のない冷却システムが構成できる。 No moving parts cooling system can be constructed. また、本発明の場合、放熱面が広いため、周囲の構造物が冷却特性に与える影響は少ない。 Further, in the present invention, since a wide heat radiating surface, the less influence the structure of the surroundings has on cooling characteristics.

【0021】本発明の第2実施例を図3を用いて説明する。 [0021] The second embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. ペルチェ素子14を図1に示すp型材料とn型材料で構成した場合、n型材料からp型材料に通電することによって、熱良導体18から熱が吸収され、ペルチェ素子14を介して、熱良導体11へ熱が放出される。 Case where the Peltier device 14 with p-type and n-type materials shown in FIG. 1, by passing the n-type material to the p-type material, heat is absorbed from the heat conductor 18, through the Peltier element 14, heat heat is released to the conductor 11. そして、その熱は、熱良導体11の面方向に拡散し、大気中へ放熱される。 Then, the heat is diffused in the surface direction of the heat conductor 11 is radiated into the atmosphere. その結果、熱良導体18の内側は冷却される。 As a result, the inside of the heat conductor 18 is cooled. 本実施例の場合も、第1実施例と同様の理由により、内容積が大きく、可動部を含まず、設置あるいは使用に制約を受けにくいシステムを構成できる。 Also in this embodiment, for the same reason as the first embodiment, a large internal volume, not including the moving part, it can be constructed less susceptible system constraints on installation or use.
