A stove-top TEG, to be used in rural area in winter, was built and tested. Peltier-type modules with large thermoelement areas were used. Several types of heat sinks were tested. The open tope water-filled pan heat sink was found to be a possible option being useful cooking as well. In addition, in order to arrest possible thermal transients, protector designs were considered.
