This didn't make sense to me at first, but in using a thermocouple
generator with a heat source on one side, the energy output increased by
blowing air over the heat sink on the cooling side.  That part made
sense, but I didn't believe that it could be self-sustaining, in other
words, I didn't think you could get more power out of the system if you
used the generated power to cool the heat sink on the cooling side, but
I was proven wrong.  It not only produced enough to sustain the fan
power, but provided more power than the system without the fan.  Cool,
huh?  Ever tried just a high efficiency fan even though it might not
seem to make sense?

Thanks,

Tony
