Voltage Generation and Thermal Gradient Analysis of a Car Waste Heat using Thermoelectric Generator
Keywords:Thermoelectric, Thermal Gradient, Voltage Generation, car waste heat,
AbstractThis study is conducted to analyse the behaviour of voltage generation and thermal gradient of a car waste heat when these conditions are applied; with no air conditioning system and with air conditioning system. The analysis of this behaviour is made possible by utilising a set of three cascaded thermoelectric generators (TEGs) in each condition. The harvested voltage is attained by placing the hot side of the TEG on top of the dashboard car. A series of data setup from a set of TEGs, temperature data logger and the data acquisition card is accomplished towards the end of the experiment. From the final analysis, it is found that the highest thermal gradient and voltage generation is obtained with the presence of air conditioning.
