Abstract: Now a day, the world is experiencing global warming due to excessive energy into atmosphere. Today, a lot of research is being conducted on the ways to recover or reuse the energy losses. An experimental investigation has been carried out to identify the most suitable cooling system techniques to achieve a stable and sustainable power output. This paper depicts the working and efficiency calculation of a thermoelectric generator. The thermoelectric generator works on the Seebeck effect which is the temperature difference between two dissimilar electrical conductors or semiconductors producing a voltage difference between two substances. Thermoelectric cooler uses the heat waste from a number of sites and can generate electricity. The experiment is carried out at low cost with standard equipment and hence efficient in many ways.
Keywords: Thermoelectric cooler, Thermoelectric generator, TEC, Efficiency, Seebeck effect
