Abstract

Regulation of the human body temperature has a very high influence on physiological processes bounding in the human organism. The minimization and integration of this system into humans clothes became important when being in the desert or working in the environment of the high temperature. The body cooling system structural scheme, energy balance equations evaluating the human clothes are presented. Possible cooling methods for the body cooling system integrated into clothes are reviewed: thermodynamic, thermoelectric, magnetocaloric. Considering safety and convenience of integration into the clothes the cooling method based on Peltier effect was chosen. Solar battery is used instead of the power supply in the body cooling system. Ill. 6, bibl. 5 (in English; summaries in English, Russian and Lithuanian).
