This paper proposes a new maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm for thermoelectric generators (TEG). The new-presented method is based on implementing an indirect open circuit voltage detection and short circuit current estimation methods, which will be used to directly control the TEG interface power converter, resulting in reaching the maximum power point (MPP) in minimal number of steps. Two modes of operation are used in the proposed algorithm, namely the perturb and observe (P&O)doi:10.3390/en11071826 fatcat:4oubbjcazfampeqbbf2p3v4q4y
