The article presents the results of research that aims at training and consolidation of knowledge and their use for thermoelectric energy harvesting. Therefore, we present a numerical modeling for design and dimensioning of micro electric power generating sources, from theoretical performance curves of thermoelectric modules and temperature gradients for future applications in industrial processes. The final result appears very attractive, since the developed experimental analysis shows promising results, given that many processes generate energy harvesting and, in addition, the cogeneration of power using thermoelectric modules is totally clean, which prevents the emission of gaseous pollute to the environment.
