The aim of our project is to create a device which generates electricity based on the seebeck effect, photovoltaic effect and by electromagnetic induction. The reason to designed this kit is to solve the problem of frequent power cuts and also to decrease the energy crisis .We used clamp digital multimeter to measure the voltage and current generated by the kit and also a mini LCD thermometer to determine the temperature difference built across the sides of the peltier modules. We expected to generate to about 260 Volt and current up to 60 Amperes but after testing our kit, we observed that it has the capacity to generate 250-255 Volt DC and 49-55 Amperes.
In the future we might use the principle of magnetocaloric effect and mica sheet to create more temperature difference in the thermoelectric generator and also series of DC motors to generate electricity without any input.More implementations can also be done by increasing the number of turns of coils of the generator to double the voltage then using step up transformer, etc.
Hypothesis: If we attempt to make this device then it will provide electricity to power the world with free and renewable energy using environmental energy sources and this will minimize the cost of energy.
This device provides an alternative method to harvest the abundant renewable source of energy which decreases the problems of energy crisis and these are the test result obtained :
