In an experiment performed by G D Botto in 1833 it was shown that it was possible to produce hydrogen gas by hydrolysis by means of an electromotive force obtained by connecting in series more than 100 thermocouples heated by a flame of burning alcohol. In the system we study, we adopt the same basic idea for an electro-thermal converter, by assuming that concentrated solar radiation heats N thermocouples in series to generate an electromotive force f0.
