In recent years, automobile sector technologies are being developed to generate power by using waste heat of hot exhaust gases. In this project no modification of motorcycle exhaust system is needed for producing power using teg. The simple square clamp method eliminates the need of heat exchanger making the construction simple. The power will be derived from vehicle exhaust gas by TEG and further will be stored in battery for the later consumption. If this is project is carried out on large scale applications such as automotive, fuel consumption will be reduced significantly. The sole objective of this project is to generate electricity using thermoelectric generator (TEG), to harvest the thermal energy dissipated by combustion gases. Thus, this technology will reduce the electrical load on alternator in turn reducing the fuel consumption of vehicle. CFD has been used for modeling and simulation of the system.
