Abstract: A calorimetric sensor has been developed for local and direct measurement of calorific dissipations in different parts of the human body. The constructed prototype has a detection surface of 36 cm2. The calibration of the sensor is based on a semi-empirical model that permits to simulate the operation of the device, making easier an operational functioning method. The device is modeled as a system with two inputs and two outputs. The inputs are the calorific power (W) that is intended to be measured and the power (W pid) that dissipates a resistance, keeping constant the thermostat temperature through the use of a PID controller. The outputs are the thermostat temperature (T pid) and the calorimetric signal (y) that provides the thermopile that is in contact with the body.
