This feasibility study investigates a use of waste heat for automotive applications.
Waste heat (from exhaust gas and motor cooling water) used for combined electricity conversion is a promising technology for increasing prime mover efficiency and thus decrease CO2 emissions. The proposed feasibility study addresses the system design of a combined small-scale compressor-turbine unit for providing electric power while receiving waste heat from the internal combustion engine. Recent research and experimental investigations at the Laboratory for Applied Mechanical Design on a thermally driven heat pump system suggest the use of small-scale, high-speed turbomachinery for improving performance while decreasing weight and volume.
