Non-conventional thermoelectric generation potential in Bangladesh
MetadataShow full item record
Non-Conventional thermoelectric generation includes electricity generation from the heat salvaged from engines exhaust, municipal solid wastes based power generation, stirling engine in solar thermal power generation, solar-thermal hybrid system etc. This thesis estimates non-conventional thermoelectric generation potential in Bangladesh. Due to inefficiency of the combustion engines, lots of heat is wasted and dumped in the environment. There are options to salvage the heat and convert it into electrical energy. Even a small percentage of salvaged heat will have a significant impact. Considering several sectors where massive amount of heat is wasted, the study intends to perform how the waste heat can be of great use. The potential for energy harvesting from sunlight using Stirling engine and solar thermal hybrid system will be assessed. Also, the municipal solid waste based power generation will be investigated. This paper provides a framework with abundant ideas of major works related to the study, the chronological research conducted by some scientists as well as the development in technology all along the period.
