Waste heat is developed as a by-product in power generation, commercial procedures and electric machines, among others. Huge of spend warmed are designed by industry. Thermoelectric developer is one of the alternate sources for the growth of power. Thermoelectric developer is a device which transforms heat straight into electrical power, using a phenomenon called the "Seebeck effect". In this paper we will recommended a thermoelectric developer which will use invest warmed exhausted by the places for development of electric power. The suggested program will be depending on thermoelectric content known as bismuth telluride (Bi2Teз). This developer having no energy price because spend warmed is the opinions for this developer. In our suggested system we used voltmeters, ammeter and warmed wide range receptors to find the regards between the opinions warmed and the designed outcome power.
