Thermoelectric materials can produce electricity from the waste heat from any sources, including a Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cooking stove. This study`s objective was to investigate the effect of different cooling systems, including the heatsink, heatsink+fan, and waterblock on the energy absorbed by TEG, which is converted into electrical power output. The LPG cooking stove`s pan support was modified using a steel plate that can adopt 4 TEG sites in series. The temperature measurement was conducted using thermocouples, which recorded using a data acquisition programmed by Arduino. The result showed that the heat energy absorbed by the water block is higher than that of the heatsink+fan and heatsink only. As a consequence, the net power output of the thermoelectric LPG stove, which was applied by the water block, is higher than that of the one using heatsink+fan and heatsink only. The power out obtained by calculation shows a close result with that obtained by measurement. This work has shown that the installment of the thermoelectric module on the LPG cooking stove can provide an alternative technique to reduce the heat loss from waste heat.
