Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, polarity circuits for thermoelectric generator are demonstrated. These circuits are important since it monitors the polarity status of the TEG voltage and flips it when a negative voltage is encountered. Several auto-polarity circuits are reported in the literature which are explained and compared. A novel technique is proposed and supported by measurement results. This technique is simple yet effective, fully integrated on chip, all digital with low overhead.
