The technique for measuring of the thermoelectric effect in superconductors near the critical temperatureTC has been elaborated. The measured magnetic flux was induced by temperature gradient (ΔT1K) between joints. The experimental study of the thermoelectric effect has been carried out in the hollow bimetallic superconducting cylinder consisting of the Pb and Pb-In alloy. The observed temperature dependence of the thermoexcited magnetic flux has been well approximated by the logarithmical function. The magnitude order of the thermopower estimated from the experimental data coincides with the known low temperature thermopowers of metals.
