Overview of Project: Power harvesting had been an imperative way of sustaining energy requirements these days. The technologies could provide alternatives and sustainable power resources which able to reduce the dependent of coal and oil burning in power generations. Among all energy harvesting resources, heat is identified as one of the resources that is permanently available. Despite of the disadvantage of the low energy conversion efficiency of the thermoelectric conversion device, as compared to other types of energy such as wind, solar and hydro; heat energy source is significantly more reliable. This project aims to study and analyse the optimal geometrical array of thermoelectric sensors to harvest energy from air conditioning waste heat, and to improve its conversion efficiency.
