Abstract
This system presents the investigation of power generation using the combination of heat sources and thermo-electric generators. A majority of thermal energy in the automobile is dissipated as waste heat to the environment. This waste heat can be utilized further for power generation. The related problems of global warming and dwindling fossil fuel supplies has led to improving the efficiency of any industrial process being a priority. One method to improve the efficiency is to develop methods to utilize waste heat that is usually wasted. Two promising technologies that were found to be useful for this purpose were thermoelectric generators and heat sources. Therefore, this project involved making a bench type, proof of concept model of power production by thermoelectric generators using heat from the engine and simulated heat radiation. The experiment of the proposed system was obtained with a counter flow air duct heat exchanger. The results obtained show an increase in the ratio of mass flow rate in upper duct to lower duct has a positive effect on the overall system performance. A higher mass flow rate ratio results in a higher amount of heat transfer and higher power output. The proposed system can be used for waste heat recovery from the automobile technologies where thermal energy is used in their daily process.
