Enhancement of the heat transfer of the cold side is one of the approaches to improve the performance of thermoelectric generator systems (TEGs). In order to investigate viability and further performance of the TEG for waste heat recovery in industry area, a small low-temperature waste heat thermoelectric generator setup has been constructed with graphene oxide (GO) nanofluids as coolants in the paper. The results showed excellent stability of GO nanofluids through the preparation of two-step method to be applied in the TEGs .The highest open output voltage of TEG system were obtained by 0.15% weight fraction of GO nanofluids as coolant when the temperature difference (△T) was designed at 95K and the hot side temperature was fixed at 373K in the TEGs. Compared with conventional glycol-water base fluid as coolant, the highest open voltage enhancement ratio has reached 65.26% in the TEGs.
