    Recent Techniques for Harvesting Energy from the Human Body

    Nidal M. Turab1, Hamza Abu Owida2, Jamal I. Al-Nabulsi2,*, Mwaffaq Abu-Alhaija1

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.40, No.1, pp. 167-177, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.017973

    Abstract The human body contains a near-infinite supply of energy in chemical, thermal, and mechanical forms. However, the majority of implantable and wearable devices are still operated by batteries, whose insufficient capacity and large size limit their lifespan and increase the risk of hazardous material leakage. Such energy can be used to exceed the battery power limits of implantable and wearable devices. Moreover, novel materials and fabrication methods can be used to create various medical therapies and life-enhancing technologies. This review paper focuses on energy-harvesting technologies used in medical and health applications, primarily power collectors from the human body. Current approaches… More >

    Fabrication and Simulation of TE Modules for a Feasibility Study on Harvesting Solar Heat Energy from Roof Tiles

    Sakorn Inthachai1, Supasit Paengson2, Jindaporn Jamradloedluk1,*, Tosawat Seetawan2,*

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.9, No.10, pp. 1685-1697, 2021, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2021.015553

    Abstract A novel roof tile thermoelectric generator (RT-TEG) was used to harvest electrical energy from a solar heat source. The RT-TEG was fabricated and simulated by flat and curved thermoelectric modules consisting of p-n junctions of p-Sb2Te3 and n-Bi2Te3, with an Al2O3 substrate at the top and bottom for heat absorption and heat rejection. The RT-TEG was installed in a roof tile to act as a generator. The electrical voltage and power values of the curved thermoelectric modules were higher than those of the flat thermoelectric module by 0.44 V and 80 mW, at a temperature difference (ΔT) of 100 K.… More > Graphic Abstract
