This study aimed to increase the energy efficiency of thermoelectric generators designed by considering the electrical properties of p- and n-type semiconductor materials for reducing the costs associated with the experiments, errors, and long production processes. Accordingly, the estimation of the energy amount to be produced by the thermoelectric materials was achieved by different doping elements using three different parameters such as skin-depth, electrical conductivity and dielectric constant. Additionally, the findings were supported by experimental results. In contrast to the conventionally used black-box type approach and estimation methods, an inference was obtained on the actual values of the materials.
