    Waste heat is created as an outgrowth in many process such as driving vehicles, running, cooking, electricity generation, working on computer etc. if we perform any task in the result decay warmth is created. Now large amount of spend warmed is create by the industries. Thermoelectric generator is one of the system of the power generation. Thermoelectric generator is a system which change warmed straight forwardly into electricity by utilizing a procedure called the “Seebeck impact”. In this paper i will suggested a thermoelectric generator which will utilize waste spend heat sap by the place for development of electric power. This recommended system depend on thermopiles and is called as bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3). Every system have two types of cost such as device and running or maintenance cost. But this system have no running cost because decay heat is the input source for this system. In our proposed design we use the digital circuit of thermometer, voltmeter, ampere meter to find the graph between decay warmth and generated power. By obtaining these graph we can easily calculate the efficiency of our proposed system.
