Proof of concept thermoelectric energy harvester powering wireless sensor on gas turbine
Paper i proceeding, 2016
The thermoelectric energy harvester went from simulations to synthesis of materials and fabrication of test prototypes. We also made measurements on a 1-couple module which did show that the technology is feasible, however very demanding and difficult to build at current state. We also showed with commercial modules that the high temperature energy harvester could power a Wi-Fi at current size of 1 cm2 and 0.4 g if a durable prototype with 7 couples could be manufactured successfully.
