TUTORIAL

Thermoelectric Tutorial Part 1: Video - Introduction To Thermoelectric Modules

This Tutorial provides info on thermoelectric modules, also known as TEMs or Peltier modules.

Below is a quick overview video about TEMs and applications for cooling, heating and power generation.

I’ve made more Tutorials in this series where you can find additional, more detailed info.

Check out the next topic in this Tutorial - A Thermoelectric Handbook: https://www.collaborizm.com/thread/B1r-IppOZ

To see a Collaborizm project using thermoelectric modules, check out Cool India: https://www.collaborizm.com/project/SJVLyK2uZ

Is it similar to the thermocouple, which is based on Seeback effect?

Yes - TEMs can use the Seebeck effect to generate electricity from heat. They can also use the inverse - the Peltier effect - to exchange heat for cooling or heating a surface.

So this product is based on the exchange of heat between the body and the surrounding, right? How would it help in the prevention of emission of harmful gases? It is basically the exchange of heat, from body to the surrounding and helps to maintain the temperature of bod the at a lower temperature.

Shrey Fadia Yes - the system in the Cool India project keeps people comfortably cool by removing heat from the surface of their skin. People using the system will not need to use air conditioning, or they will need less of it. By using less air conditioning, they use less power from dirty power plants that create greenhouse gas emissions and airborne pollutants.You can read more about emissions from India’s power plants here: https://www.ft.com/content/18268438-2e3e-11e7-9555-23ef563ecf9a and in this paper: https://www3.epa.gov/ttnchie1/conference/ei20/session5/mmittal.pdf

Shrey Fadia Thanks for your interest Shrey! Collaborizm and I have been working behind the scenes to make this into a really compelling project. I’m also collecting all of the existing files so everything can be open-source. So keep watching this space!

A quick question for you: What would do you think are the best next steps on the technical side? Let me know when you have a second - I’m really interested in getting your input.

Thanks again!
