Abstract: Electrical energy has become a part of all human beings, the claim for electricity has been very high in the current days and hence electricity generated by usual means is not plenty. Nowadays solar, wind and thermal power station are mostly used to generate electricity. But by using this more amount of space can be occupied, fuel cost is increasing day by day, and also power consumption rate is very high in commercial sectors. So avoid these problems by using Thermo Electric power Generator (TEG). It is in the form of peltier coolers and TE generators. TE generator produces electrical energy from waste heat. It works based on principle of SEEBECK effect. It is named after the Baltic German physicist Thomas Johann seebeck. This paper proposed an idea of Design and Hardware implementation of Portable Generator using TEG. Hardware model was implemented and tested.
