Shrutika Karpe1,International Journal of Current Engineering and Technology showed that, In recent years, global warming and thelimitations in use of energy resources increase environmental issues ofemissions. Also In industry, most of the expenses are due to energy (bothelectrical and thermal), labor and materials.
But out of them energy wouldrelate to the manageability of the cost or potential cost savings and thusenergy management will help in cost reduction. The possibilities ofthermoelectric systems’ contribution to “green” technologies, specifically forwaste heat recovery from industry exhausting flue gases. It results intoextensive research on green technologies producing electricity. As waste heatrecovering techniques, such as thermoelectric generator (TEG) is developed. Itsimplementation in automobile industry is carried out in many ways. Previousresearch shows that TEG as a waste heat harvesting method is useful.
Due todistinct benefits of Thermoelectric generators, they have become a promisingalternative green technology. Thermoelectric generator direct convertswaste-heat energy into electrical power where it is unnecessary to consider thecost of the thermal energy input. The application of this technology can alsoimprove the overall efficiency of the energy conversion systems. Even though outputof TEGs is low with available techniques, feasible electricity generation ispossible due to waste heat emitted from the automobile (internal combustionengine operation).
Priscilla A Stecanella2& Co-authors suggested that, Generating machines of electricity, usingcombustion engines and generate a great amount of residual thermal energy fromthe exhaust gases. This residual thermal energy can be converted into usableelectricity using thermoelectric generator (TEG), which are manufactured cells withsemiconductor materials employing the Seebeck effect. When recovering the wasteheat in the exhaust ducts using TEG, increases the efficiency of electricalmachines, because the same amount of fuel input generates more power or lessintake of fuel, has the same amount the generated electric energy and thus lessair pollution (as there will be less burning of fossil fuels) makes the systemmore sustainable. The purpose of this paper is present an electric generationplant using thermoelectric generator (TEG), which recover the thermal energydissipated by combustion gases of an electric generator. To improve the efficiency of generation iscarried out the control and supervision of the temperature on the cold side ofthe TEG.
