Thermo electric effect

  1. 1. Thermo Electric Effect By: Ahmed Diaa El Din
  2. 2. What is it ? The thermoelectric effect is the direct conversion of temperature differences to electric voltage . The direction of heat flow can be controlled by changing polarity of the voltage source.
  3. 3. History In the 1820’s Thomas Seebeck (Germany) discovered that if two metals at different temperatures were touching you could create an electric current. Jean Peltier discovered that the opposite was also true. By sending a current through two metals you could create differences in temperature.
  4. 4. Seebeck Effect Discover Seebak Coefficient : S=-∆V/ ∆T ΔV is the voltage difference. ΔT is the temperature difference between the hot and cold sides . The negative sign comes from the negative charge of the electron.
  5. 5. Peltier Effect Discover The efficiency by which a material is capable of generating power (Z) K thermal Conductivity - σ electrical Conductivity - S seebak coff.
