Paper Abstract

Converting infrared radiation in the form of heat into electricity is one of the interesting energy conversion approaches. This can be simply accomplished through thermoelectric effect with the well-known device called thermoelectric cooler (TEC). In this paper, we briefly overview TEC-based concepts, demonstrations, and products for converting heat into electricity. We then propose our own portable TEC-based heat-to-electricity converting module. Experimental proof of concept is also highlighted showing a promising output voltage of 5VDC and 0.224A suitable for low voltage applications. Future work relates to design optimization, engineering improvement, and testing in real world scenario.
