Good Evening my Fellow Steemians!

Tonight I would like to begin a series of weekly technology articles that highlight current technologies that I believe can be harnessed to help the individual manifest abundance.

The video above demonstrates how electricity is generated from thermal difference.

The four thermoelectric effects, listed in chronological order of their discovery, are:
Effect 1 - If two different conductors are joined and the two junctions are maintained at different temperatures, an electromotive force is developed in the circuit.
Effect 2 - If a current flows in a circuit consisting of two different conductors then one of the junctions is heated and the other is cooled.
Effect 3 - When a temperature difference exists between two points in a single electrical conductor an electrical potential is established between the points.
Effect 4 - If a current passes through a conductor in which a temperature gradient exists, this current causes a flow of heat from one part to the other.
These effects are very closely related. Indeed, each of them represents a reversible effect whereby effects 1 and 2 are the reverse of each other, and effects 3 and 4 are similarly the reverse of each other.
Thomas Johann Seebeck first identified Effect 1 in 1821. He spent the rest of his scientific career measuring the size of this effect for different pairs of dissimilar conductors in contact with each other. Seebeck died in 1831.
In 1834 Jean Charles Athanase Peltier first identified Effect 2, the reverse of Effect 1. Peltier died in 1845.
Significantly later (around 1854-1855), William Thomson first deduced and demonstrated BOTH of the effects numbered 3 and 4

This is such a huge technology when applied to solar power systems. If you reside in an area of any amount of humidity you could use excess energy generated to condense the water out of the air. Stay tuned for a future experiment!

Thanks bud! hey I'm sorry I don't have access to my FB messenger anymore because I lost my school email fb password and deleted the messenger app. Find me on discord and send me a DM sometime I'm tinkershaman #0201

Woah, that sounds like it would have some awesome applications here in Texas. How efficient is the generator?

Good question @nateonsteemit I'm not sure about their efficiency. However...…. I'm planning to do a few experiments with them on the backs of solar panels and see if I can have them condense water while harvesting the power generated from the thermal difference.

That sounds delightful! More efficient solar plus water collection sounds awesome.

·

Yeah! we'll see man, If it can draw heat from the solar panel it could make the panel more efficient as well.

Keep us posted on the progress! I'd dare say you'd be able to make a badass marketable product with it all if it works out!

Will do, I made an order from that link you dropped! Thank you fine sir!

Heck yeah! If the project turns out good, I'll probably do the same! It would be cool to generate water at the same time as electricity. I wonder if it would be any use to put a few on the compressor in my A/C unit outside.
