Nowadays, hybrid system from alternative energy has been
developing drastically in order to fulfil the demand on electricity. One of
that energy is solar energy that produces radiant light and heat that can be
converted into electricity. Photovoltaic (PV) cell can be used to react with
radiation and emit electrons resulting in electric current because of the
flowing of electron charge over time. Then, thermoelectric module that
use thermocouple (TE) concept can generate electricity because of the
different temperatures between two layers of semiconductor material. PV
cell and TE module will be integrated together to increase efficiency of
electricity generation. The efficiency depends on solar radiation and solar
heat temperature. Then, the liquid cooling system integrated together with
prototype panel to maintain lower temperature at cold junction of TE
module. So, the bigger difference of temperature between TE module
junctions will produce more voltage and more electricity. This innovation
has no emission and requires less maintenance. So, it can be considered as
one of the green teclmologies for hybrid system
