    SMPS is bouncing while connected with Peltier Cooler

    I have a peltier cooler TEC1-12706. I used an SMPS which can give 12 Volt and 20 Ampere. While I am connecting the peltier and cooling fan(Parallel) the cooling fan is bouncing along with the smps(It seems like smps is restarting). I assume people will say the smps is damaged. But it is working...

    Sample heating/cooling system

    Hello everyone! I'm currently an intern at the Vilnius University Laser Research Center and I must develop a small dimension (aprox~40mmx60mmx5mm) sample heating/cooling system with a temperature range of -2ºC up to 150ºC for my setup. I was thinking of a single peltier element to achieve this...

    Question About Current Draw From Peltier Element

    I have a TEC1 - 12706. Specifications detail Imax at 6 amps. I would like to run five of these elements in parallel but my bench top supply can't supply the current needed ( I'd like about 5 amps each). I do however have a 600W power supply unit designed for PCs. The PSU has a single 12V rail...

    How to turn a TEG output into something I could use?

    Hello there, I'm a beginner with electronics so I apologize in advance for my basic questions. I'm working on a project that uses a Peltier device (TEG) as the power source. The conditions under which it is used allow me to harvest about 1V and 130mA. The motor I want to power on a cycle -...
