Query regarding Thermoelectric Generators and Coupling

Hello everyone! I am doing a final year project related to simulation of waste heat recovery from exhaust gases using Thermoelectric Generators (TEG). Now, we are facing a couple of problems, as I can't find any clear procedure for the simulation. 

Could someone explain how I can use two-way coupling to combine Fluent (that we are using to simulate the heat exchanger) with Thermal Electric System. According to my research, this should be two-way coupling, tough I can't find a method for doing two-way coupling.

Secondly, I have found the method to simulate a Thermal Electric Generator on an area of 3mm by 3mm. How can I simulate a TEG on a larger area?

Thank you for your time

Are you using the Student license or a full license?  The Student license does not include the Two-way Coupling system that is in the full license.
