Low grade waste heat is easily appears in working devices and raises their temperature. Therefore, forced convection cooling system became a necessity for keeping their performance. For saving energy, the ideal of thermoelectric self cooling that recovers and transforms the waste heat into electricity with thermoelectricity modules for driving the cooling system was proposed. In order to explore the techniques of its application, this study sets up a simulator of thermoelectric self cooling device for experimental study. The effects of the structure of heat sink on the function of thermoelectric self cooling have been investigated.
