    Nice video! As you requested, I produced a video a few months ago where I go into more depth on the quantum process that generates this cooling and heating effect.

      I think you can make an automatic surface fridge. If you could find a way to use the cold surface to also create/freeze ice / recycle water in the basin to form ice that then which is automatically and continuously dumped into the heatsink basin to maintain the temperature differential as ready. You could protect the live wires and circuitry and quite possibly* install it* in* your countertop. You may or may not need 50+watts for it. You might be able to find a more heat conductive material that which has better cooling properties as opposed to generally being a good heat conductor*. You could also find a plastic cap, glass*, insulated* / lid that is tall enough to cover a soda can for instance. Just for fun. Or to cool fruit that you've cut you can leave it on your counter and cover it with it running at a variable minimum wattage.
      I hope someone experiments with something like this!

      @Red Lightning Sky we adress an ideal fridge as a device that absorbs energy from cold reservoir and radiates it to hot reservoir by consuming energy in form of work.
      But in heat engines we grab some of the energy which is transferring between the two reserviors and convert it to work.
      So a good fridge is an awful heat engine and viseversa so if these are a type of fridge then if used as a power generator, its vivid that it would be less efficient(note that these are heat engines too but they move electrons)

    You should have used server fans. (the small ones)

    You can also stack TECs. However that does mean the top most hot side will get hotter as its dissipating two modules worth of heat. Id vote from trying a evo 212 type cooler. lots of area to dissipate the heat from a single stacked array. Over 160w TDP according to online bench tests.

    TECs are also used in those weird wood stove fans. one side is warmed by the stove, the other has a heat sink like design. As the stove warms it provides enough power to turn some fans, which in theory also moves air over the heat sink allowing the system to self sustain while those stove is burning.

    If you have one and it doesnt quite work, well yeah, they are a little buggy. Either give the fans a little push, or take the TEC out and give it some new thermal compound.

    I have useful tip for you about water cooling things like this; Use car radiator/oil cooler depending on the cooling power needed you can find them in every size. You can hook them up with any water pump and fan. Quietest setup is probably 12v pump and large computer fans and BOOM there you have it. Of course pc water cooling radiators work too but they are often very expensive and small

    So... Why not cool the hot end of the peltier with another peltier?
    Also, if you have enough of them you could go full circle.
    Couldn't this be used as some sort of makeshift (aka shitty) battery? First you put energy in, stuff gets cooled/heated then you unplug the powersource and instead you connect a sink (LEDs whatever) which then will be powered until the temperature reaches equilibrium.

    Try dipping your hands in acetone, it will draw away the heat from your hands and you will feel your hands get cold, it´s called (evaporative heat loss, when a chemical substance evaporates it takes the heat with itself and transports it away). How does a refridgirater work, the same way but in a closed loop? It draws away the warm/warmer air. It doesn´t CREATE cold air. If you wan´t to get annything cold you draw the warmth from it, not the other way around.

    You are never really cold, you are just without heat!

    How about using liquid nitrogen to cool one side? How much electricity could it generate that way? Maybe enough to run the fan and the power device making it a FREE ENERGY DEVICE! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

    We should just put those at hot locations like near volcanoes or deserts to generate electricity off the heat.

    For uniforme air flow you should juste point the fan in the other direction so it sucks the air insted off pushing it in a certain way !!

    The Seebeck effect in thermodynamics is not a junction effect. It is a continuous one but to have a difference in electrical potential on a thermocouple(the type you showed) you only need two different materials because otherwise the Seebeck effect in both wires would cancel each other out.

    Too much thermal paste!

  • thegoodlisteners listenwell

    Here is a good question, why not take a peltier, grid down both sides so that the piece between the p and n connections snd the heat and even closer, then be sure to spread the paste very thin when connecting the heat sink? Im sure it would give much better results. Im curious if a graphite powder mixer would be cheap and effective, graphene quality powder.
