I have two of the BXQINLENX 55x55MM 7V 1.25A TEG1-241-1.4-1.2 Thermoelectric Power Generation Peltier Modules.
I am trying to make something like an Ecofan by sandwiching them between one aluminum plate and a heat sink. I need urgent help as the deadline of my project is approaching fast. Should I connect them in series or parallel? I mean should I lay them side by side and connect each of their red wire to a red wire or connect their red and black together? I eventually want to power a fan and hopefully a USB device with them by using a step up module. This is the one I have.
I am not noticing much of a change in output with two Peltier and similar results are with just one Peltier tile only. I know I am doing something wrong.
Also, can I use this product to join the aluminum parts or will that affect the functionality of the project?
I have two of the following heat sinks, should I use both to create a greater temperature difference?
- First heat sink.
- This second heat sink that I have is without a fan but I have attached a fan to it.
Sorry if this questions are very basic but I don’t have an engineering background. Any help is highly appreciated.
