Dear OF experts:

I am in the process of developing a new BC to model Peltier device (also called TED - thermal electric device). TED has a hot side and a cold side. The model takes inputs of some parameters, such as NofThermocouples, current, voltage, ...

So, now I am able to read these values in the T bc. The problem is that, when computing the cold side, it requires average temperature on the hot side, which locates on a different patch of (maybe) a different region. So, my problem is that, in the T cold side BC, how to access temperature field on a different patch of a different region?

Thanks!

Pei
