Abstract
The present study experimentally investigates the performance of Thermo-Electric Generator (TEG) integrated with heat pipes. The heat pipe assembly has distilled water as the working fluid with 4 number of C-shaped heat pipes. The thermal energy of high pressurized steam is used to increase the temperature of the hot side of TEG. The readings of voltage and power output for closed circuit were taken experimentally for a pressure range of 1-10 bar (gauge) for natural as well as forced convection. Further, the results of this configuration were compared with the earlier arrangement of heat sink (without heat pipe configuration). It is found that the performance of TEG integrated with heat pipe shows a significant increase in voltage and power output in comparison with TEG without heat pipe. The outcomes of this study will be useful for utilizing waste thermal energy for generating power that can be utilized for operating auxiliary thermal equipments.
