Heat Recovery System in Automobile

Authors(5) :-Anurodh Mohapatra, Karan Kumar Aneja R, Sagar Kadam, Aaqib Rafiq, Alekh Anil

Nowadays the performance of the vehicles has been the trend of improvement, but the efficiency of the vehicles has not seen good improvement as engines efficiency is limited to 30-40% and other 60-70% of the fuel energy is being wasted to the environment through various factors such as heat, friction & engine coolant. Waste heat is the heat, which is generated in a process by a fuel combustion and released into the environment, though it can be used for economical, and some useful purpose. Some power of IC engine is used to run alternator, which reduces the mileage. We have used Thermoelectric Generator (TEG’s) for utilizing the waste heat energy from the exhaust line through seebeck effect, which generates E.M.F with temperature difference; our motto is to supply this energy to the external accessories such as a portable mobile charger or auxiliary lights for various locations on the bike. The weight of the TEG setup is not as heavy as a reason it can be introduced to vehicles, the cost of the TEG is significantly affordable but the design, and construction of TEG is the challenging factor for us.
