Seebeck Effect, Using Peltier Module To Generate Electricity


I used the CP1-12726 TEC module to generate electricity this is a large module with 127 thermoelectric elements about 15.4V max and will take a max of 26A the first module in the introduction of this video is a TEC1-12709 it has the same 127 thermoelectric elements just a bit smaller so it will have the same max voltage but only use a max of 9A but used as generator will generate the same voltage at the same temperature difference just the short-circuit current will be probably about 3x lower so about 500mA at 1.2V if used in the same way as in the video example.
