  • Description
  • Scope of Supply
  • Downloads and Documents


This experiment shows that a thermo generator can produce mechanical energy with the help of coldness and heat. The thermal tension of a thermo generator depends on the temperature difference across the element.


  • Experiment is part of a complete solution set with a total of 17 experiments for Renewable Energy Basics and Heat energy
  • Direct protection of the thermocouple against overheating due to fixed aluminum plates
  • Additional aluminum block for storage of heat energy


  1. Can a motor be put into motion with heat or coldness?
  2. In this experiment the thermocouple is connected to a motor. You will try to activate the motor  by placing a mug with hot water or ice cubes on the thermocouple.
