The purpose of this study is to investigate the Brownian heat engine with thermo-ecological function (ECF) and ecological coefficient of performance (ECOP). Potential and kinetic heat flows are taken into account. Different parameters are considered in the analyses. Beside the thermo-ecological function and ecological coefficient of performance, the basic thermodynamics parameters involving power output and efficiency are investigated. Results are presented numerically and the optimum points of the system are determined.
