In this article we analyze different thermoelectric materials, in order to be able to study the voltage generation from the bimetallic junctions between these materials, under the principle of the Seebeck Effect. The analyzes were carried out using a virtual instrument developed on the Matlab platform. This is intended to have a virtual tool that helps research in the field of renewable energy, seeking new solutions to the problem of high costs and the decline in non-renewable energy. A compendium of the work of various researchers has been made, enriching the data and the results of our development.
