Thermo Electric Generator is a device which Converts warmth immediately into electric electricity the usage of a phenomenon known as the "Seebeck effect". Unlike traditional dynamic warmness engines, thermoelectric generators contain no shifting components and are absolutely silent. But for small packages, thermoelectrics can end up competitive due to the fact they are compact, easy (inexpensive) and scalable. Thermoelectric systems may be without problems designed to perform with small heat

Pacemakers usually use batteries as their power source, and when the battery's period is over, the patient has to undergo surgery to replace the batteries. By using TEG, rapidly undergoing surgery of those pacemakers's patient can be avoided. The main objective of our project is to power implantable devices using Thermoelectric Generator and avoid further surgeries for the patient.
