Development of hybrid energy recovery system to harvest energy from waste heat using TE materials


Project Description

Over the past decade, there has been heightened interest in the field of thermoelectrics, driven by the need for more efficient materials for electronic refrigeration and power generation. For energy harvesting, unlike photovoltaic solar cell, Thermoelectric (TE) materials can generate electricity from heat directly. This will open large potential for energy saving in many industries. For example, the waste heat from the radiator and exhaust system can be used to generate electricity in next-generation hybrid cars. However, the energy which can be converted to electricity is limited. To improve the efficiency, it is necessary to convert waste heat to electricity and reusable heat together. This project will use CFD simulation and experimental tests to develop hybrid system with high efficiency to recover energy from waste for industry applications.
