Implications of Energy Generation Involves a local (volumetric) source of thermal energy due to conversion from another form of energy in a conducting medium. The source may be uniformly distributed , as in the conversion from electrical to thermal energy (Ohmic heating): ( 29 exp q x α - Generation affects the temperature distribution in the medium and causes the heat rate to vary with location, thereby precluding inclusion of the medium in a thermal circuit.
