Free energy in your home

The simplest thermal power plant is free energy that can be obtained from you at home. This mini power plant uses the heat of your central heating system. Why free? - Because all the heat remains in your home and is not lost anywhere. Generate energy will be the well-known Peltier element, which is not difficult to get in our time.

What do you need for energy?

- Heating pipe with a temperature of 50 degrees. - Fastening on the pipe - made by myself from various trash. - Aluminum foil. - Peltier element - aliexpress - USB boost converter - aliexpress - Radiator - aliexpress - Load - LED flashlight - aliexpress

Peltier Element:

The simplest thermal power plant - free energy
First, let's measure the temperature of the central heating pipe. Its temperature is 60, which is enough to generate electricity.

The radiator, then comes the attachment to the battery, and between them the Peltier thermoelectric module. This is necessary for the battery to heat one side of the module, and the radiator with free convection cooled the second side. As a result of the temperature difference, the Peltier element will begin to generate electricity. And the more the temperature difference between its sides, the more voltage will be at the output. The more the temperature difference between its sides, the greater the voltage will be at the output.

First, of course, fasten it to the radiator, and then only to the battery. For better heat transfer, lubricate the two surfaces touched by the module with thermally conductive paste. The mount has a rectangular shape and the tube is round.To ensure good heat transfer, we will make a kind of gasket from foil, which will take the form of both sides. We fill the foil very tightly.

If you calculate the temperature difference that will be applied to the Peltier module, you get about 35-40 degrees Celsius. The output will be a small voltage, about 0.5-1.5 volts. This tension, of course, is not enough. Although the voltage is low, it has a decent output current. Therefore, we connected a voltage converter to the output of the module, with a stabilized input voltage.
Boost Voltage Converter
Well, the load of the converter can be either a cell phone or an LED flashlight.

We connect our thermal power station to the battery. Gently tighten the screws.After some time, our source of alternative energy should work.

I decided to use the received energy to illuminate the corridor at night. Spent the wires, hung a LED flashlight. Now, at night, you can safely get up and go about your nightly business, not including general lighting and not disturbing anyone.

What application you will find is up to you! If the pipe to which you will connect your power station will be in a place where the noise does not hurt, say in the toilet in the bathroom, in the kitchen. So you can use a radiator with a cooler. Powering the cooler from the converter. Then the capacity of the power station will increase slightly. There are a great many such power sources available around the house.Yes, of course, there is a big minus that everything will work only during the work of central heating, but still the experience is quite interesting. Although in winter time it is almost always dark and this homemade will come to the rescue, and in summer it is almost always light and it is not so necessary.
