Hi Jeremy Are you a friend of Peter Michael Jack, the author ? I have a feeling someone is gently pulling someone's leg. But perhaps not. PMJ is saying that he thinks TEMs are under.represented in conventional electrical theory and he wants to define a new class of things called slactors. Perhaps he should have called them PMJs. ( Peanut butter, Margarine and Jelly ? ) Most electronic practioners have not felt an urge to give reversible thermal engines a group name so I guess PMJ wins the day. If you want to learn more about TEMs ( Thermoelectric Modules ) check out http://www.coolworksinc.com/about_thermoelectric_technology.htm history http://www.kryotherm.ru/history_spr.html theory http://www.kryotherm.ru/ustrtem.html other sites http://www.kryotherm.ru/site.html Gus S Calabrese
