Abstract:
On Current Automotive Application, including Brazil, there are significant initiatives to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, like INOVAR Auto and others worldwide. There are several initiatives for Hybrid vehicles, electrical vehicles and other fuel cell energy vehicles, besides the additional energy supply in order to reduce the fuel energy consumption and consequently the emissions.The vehicle features represents a huge part of energy consumption, because the generator needs to feed all of those features.To reduce this energy required from generator and consequently from vehicle accessory drive and engine itself, we are aiming to reuse one of the bigger energy wasted on vehicle combustion engine, the thermal one. For that end, the Thermal Energy Generator is applied on major heat sources and convert the thermal energy through electrical energy due to “See-beck effect cells”.The intent of the project is show some application alternatives for this known effect, the inputs required to define a feasible system, the charges requirements and the output maximized from the system to reduce the fuel energy consumption.
