Abstract: A Thermoelectric Cooler, or TEC as it is commonly known, is a small device consisting of many P-type and N-type semiconductor blocks that is used to create temperature difference between its sides. Typically the dc supply voltage to TEC is 12V. Since this principle is generally called as the Peltier effect, this device is also named as a Peltier module. It also shows the reverse effect called as the Seebeck effect. When a temperature difference is maintained across its plates, a voltage is generated across the terminals of the module. Thus, it may also be configured as a thermoelectric generator or TEG. This paper deals with an innovative idea on air cooler by exploiting the behaviour of a Peltier module. The basic principle deals with the conversion of heat energy directly to electrical energy using Peltier module so as to reduce the temperature in the surrounding region resulting in a cooling effect. The aim of this work is trigeneration involving TEC/TEG modules. Further use of Joule thief circuits and energy harvester circuits are also discussed to provide a future research scope in this topic.
