A Way to Use Waste Heat to Generate Thermoelectric Power

Marian Brázdil, Jiří Pospíšil


In recent years there has been rising interest in thermoelectric generation as a potential source of electric power using waste heat. This paper describes thermoelectric power generation from waste heat from biomass boilers, utilizing generators that can convert heat energy directly to electrical energy. General principles of thermoelectric conversion and future prospects of these applications are discussed.
