Abstract

Energy harvesting is a process of harvesting energy generated by the surrounding system or the environment and converts is to available power supply. It is an interesting topic as one of a way to develop an electronic device without using any of natural sources. Hence, the idea of energy harvesting is studied in this research. The purpose of this study is to calculate the efficiency of thermal energy harvester by using a Peltier module in order in improving the efficiency of thermal energy harvester. Besides, the temperature difference is also analyzed in achieving the best value of temperature gradient. A prototype of thermal energy harvester (TEH) system was developed in order to achieve the parameters. The parameters are the temperature of both plates; cold and hot plates as well as the voltage generated by the system. All the data was recorded and analyzed. The value of temperature difference of the Peltier module was obtained as well the higher amount of voltage is obtained.
