I am making a mini-fridge. On one side is a 150mmx150mm aluminium plate. It has been roughed up to increase surface area. On the other side it has an aluminium CPU cooler which can survive the tdp of the peltier.
2 x TEC1-12706, 4 x Fan 12V @ 0.2A
A TEC1-12706 is a peltier thermo-electric pad that emits cold on one side and hot on the other. This operates at 12V and at max, 6A. Hence the 12 and 06.
Say if I had a 12V dc power supply, how would I proportion the correct amount of current to these components? So if I want 6A each going to the peltier cooler and the remaining 1A for the fans.
I was thinking a potentiometer will do it but it would not be the best and efficient way.
