The objective of this paper is to utilize wasted heat and hot pressurized air from the exhaust duct of the generator in generating station to produce electricity. This heat and exhaust air is produced due to two types of losses i.e, core losses and copper losses inside generator and its temperature gradient with respect to the external environment. To accomplish this task a hybrid system consisting of Thermoelectric Cells and Wind Turbine assembly is designed in which Thermoelectric Cells produces electricity using the wasted heat based upon the Seebeck effect while the wind turbine generates electricity due to high speed wind striking its specially designed blades according to the modern Aero-Dynamical designs. This hybrid system will work in parallel with the main Generator acting as auxiliary electricity generating source. This system will provide improved results at higher temperature differences and high pressure of wind.
