Energy harvesting has been surprisingly increased in the research and development until this day. The cause for the demand of renewable energy harvesting is rising due to the facts that fossil fuel is on the verge of being depleted. Currently, there are many ways to collect this infinite energy. One of the ways is by harvesting power thermoelectric generator by using combustion engine heat source. The main purpose of thermoelectric generator (TEG) is to provide the electricity supply to user by supplying the clean voltage in dc form without wasting the energy. There many applications of that can implement this method, for example the place that does not have main power supply. The (TEG) can use to support the electrical part for example to light up the lamp, to supply to battery charger for hand phone and many more. This project is very economical and low cost, which focuses to harvest heat source from combustion car engine which can reduce the usage of main battery of the vehicle and electricity.
