Technology

A thermoelectric generator (TEG), also called a Seebeck generator, is a solid state device that converts heat flux (temperature differences) directly into electrical energy through a phenomenon called the Seebeck effect (a form of thermoelectric effect). Thermoelectric generators function like heat engines, but are less bulky and have no moving parts.

M-CHP (micro combined heat and power system) operates on any flammable gas. The key point to its feasibility and sustainability is to assemble multiple parts and mechanical engineer various components correctly. The design has a module containing 20 TEGs (thermoelectric generators) which are installed on one PCB (printed circuit board). 

Each module has 20 semi-conductors and an output value of: 432 Watts (46VDC@4.7A), the output is connected directly with a DC-AC microinverter for 110V-120V AC (60Hz) output. Six modules are being used for an aggregated gross output of up to 2,592 Watts (in DC Voltage), 2,332W/hour (NET generation in AC Voltage after conversion). Up to 700W is then dedicated towards a water chiller and 200W is dedicated for the heating and hot water (built-in) system, remaining balance of the power (1,480W) is dedicated towards charging a designated battery bank (24KWh). A 10KW split phase inverter is connected with the battery bank to supply household power to the main power control panel for both 110V-120V (60Hz) as well as 220V-240V AC. 

In compliance with the basic working principal of thermoelectric based power generation, the modules are placed on a (60,000BTU) gas griddle hot plate with a constant temperature of 300 Celsius and liquid cooled plate with a constant temperature of 30 Celsius is installed on top of the modules for a seebeck reaction from the semi-conductors to achieve the target power output. A total of 12 outputs of 216W (DC Voltage) each go through micro-inverters for the voltage conversion and final output is in pure sinewave, grid quality power. An industrial grade water chiller is a permanent part of the system to supply constant liquid cooled surface which utilizes 700W from the generated power and 200 watts is provided to the household boiler, responsible for the heating and hot water supply to the household. The boiler consumes gas from a second independent gas connection.
