The Thermoelectric Generator is a power generation block added by Immersive Engineering. It can generate Immersive Flux (IF) or Redstone Flux (RF) based on the temperature difference of the blocks surrounding it. It does not have an internal energy buffer, so measurement devices like The One Probe or WAILA read 0 Flux.

Set-up

A basic setup with Water and Lava source blocks

The high-temperature and low-temperature blocks need to be across from each other. The Thermoelectric Generator has enough faces for two block sets plus a connector. Three block sets works in theory, but it would only be practical if the player can extract the power without overriding a block face; thus, the theoretical maximum for power rate is 93 Flux/tick.

Power output

Power is given by the formula

where...

is the output rate, in Flux/tick
is the temperature of the hotter block, in Kelvin
is the temperature of the colder block, in Kelvin
is an adjustment constant, defined in the config; defaults to 1

Below is a table of output rates for possible block pairings. Most values are measured in-game, and some are calculated (which need confirmation).
