This will hopefully be my first of many posts on this forum.
I must admit I am a totaly noob when it comes to general electronics knowledge I know a tiny bit about voltages and currents. Just don't start about Ohms and stuff.
I am willing to learn however as the Arduino has really peaked my interest.
I have had an idea in my had for a long while.
I am a Peltier fanatic. I love them.
But now I want to go a step further past the normal PC usage(100% powered TEC all the time!). I want to control it! preferably with the Arduino.
I would just like to know if the following is ever possible with the Arduino before I start diving into this.
I want to be able to control multiple high powered TECs(100W+) via PWM with the Arduino. This is possible with the Arduino. The part I wasn't able to find was.
I want to be able to set a temperature which the arduino should compare to a temperature sensor and adjust the PWM duty cycle accordingly
My TEC is cooling the water which in turn cools the CPU, the water temperature I have set is 20C. When I start to load my CPU this temperature will rise. I want the Arduino to raise the duty cycle of the PWM until the water has been dropped to 20C again or until PWM has reached 100% ofcourse.
Is such a thing possible with the Arduino or is this out of its league?
I realise that I will need to learn a lot before I can implement this, but if it isn't even possible why bother?
