Abstract : A thermoelectric generator is equipped with a protective device which upon overload conditions disconnects a primary load, such as rechargeable battery, in order to protect the secondary load, i.e., the burner, fuel pump and other ancillary items necessary to operate the thermoelectric generator. The protective device includes a voltage selectable breakdown diode, a transistor switch, a relay whose coil is connected to the transistor switch and preferably an anti-clatter circuit. (Author)
