Seebeck effect - if two junctions of a thermocouple are kept at different temperatures, an electric current will be induced in the loop.
Peltier effect-the cooling of one junction and the heating of the other when electric current is maintained in a circuit of material consisting of two dissimilar conductors and it is called Peltier effect.
Joule effect - thisis the process by which the passage of anelectric currentthrough conductorreleases heat.
Thomson effect - if two sections of a conductor are at different temperatures then emf is developed between these two sections.

The phenomenon of evolution or absorption of heat along with the length of a conductor on passing current through it when its two ends are kept at a different temperature is known as Thomson's effect.
