What’s thermoelectric generation?
|Thermoelectric generation is a conversion technology using voltage formed by temperature difference between edges of electrically conductive materials.
This phenomenon is called Seebeck effect.
Electrical energy can be generated by connecting p- and n-type thermoelectric devices
Advantage of thermoelectric conversion
Generation by temperature difference
Direct conversion from heat to electricity
No moving parts
High power density
