Human organism must keep thermal comfort in any environmental condition, but when ambient temperature reaches dangerous level, the supplementary cooling or heating system is necessary. This system we are integrating into wearing clothes for saving comfortability. The effectiveness of that system depends on rational arrangement of the cooling elements, in our case – it is Peltier element. Temperature propagation around one Peltier element in the human skin upper layer by using analogy of the long lines is analyzed in this paper. Also there are presented analysis for two cooling elements and for several Peltier elements arranged by quadrate. Analytical expressions of the temperature propagation are presented.
