We present the results of simulation of conjugate heat transfer between the grid of barium titanate plates and the hot air flow. The air temperature undergoes rapid change and the thermal front propagation and heat exchange with the solid plates have been studied for several plate configurations. The results show that the air heat could be effectively absorbed by the plates during the time of thermal front propagation, making such configuration attractive for pyroelectric energy harvesting applications.
