Development of Self-Power-Generated (SPG) Window Blinds Using Peltier Effect
AbstractIn the present study, an empirical model is proposed to determinate the potentiality of self-power generated window blinds by using Peltier device through thermoelectric modules in contact with the solar panel. The Peltier element has an adsorption and exothermic feature, and it uses a radiator to influence air convection. Since the outside temperature has the greatest impact on the walls where the blinds are mounted or the windows, a "Peltier feature" is installed to allow for air convection. Each side of the Peltier element has a cold and a hot component. As a result, we performed an experiment to see whether the element's heat has any effect on the temperature. When the Peltier element was turned on, one side cooled and the other heated, which is known as the Peltier effect. When one side of the Peltier element is cold and the other is hot, power is released, this phenomenon known as the Seebeck effect. In case of solar panel, since capacity calculations are based on flexible solar panels, more power can be produced by using actual apartments, silicon solar panels that can be used at home, or ones with better production efficiency. On the other hand, we also measured electricity using flexible solar panels mounted on blinds and estimated the maximum amount of electricity that could be generated per day based on size and time. Since capacity estimates for solar panels are based on flexible solar panels, more power can be generated by using actual apartments, silicon solar panels that can be used at home, or panels with higher production performance. Finally, from this experiment it can be concluded that this invention of producing energy from window blinds using Peltier effect can be used in a variety of areas as an environmentally friendly energy production system.
