Nowadays it is necessary to research other types of energy alternatives and find the way to supply and save the energy we waste. The aim of the project consist of programming a microprocessor to measure if an oven radiates heat to the exterior, for the measure It is used a Peltier element that generates a voltage depending of the temperature difference between the oven and the air of the place where the oven is situated; The energy generated by the oven will be recollected in a condensor. A sensor will be used to know the exact measure. The second part of the project the main propose, is the development of a harvester. The microprocessor will use the voltage produced by the Peltier element to supply the electricity that it needs to work. A low power circuit and the appropriate software are needed to save the voltage generated.
