• Heat to Water 600 W
  • Electrical Power up to 42 W
  • TE Efficiency 5%

Stoves are used in developing countries, remote locations, and for low-cost space heating. The possibility of also using the stove heat to heat water and produce electricity represents an added benefit thus effectively creating a combined heat and power (CHP) system. We have modified a solid-fuel stove to concurrently charge a lead-acid battery with an average of 27 W and transfer heat to water for heating or household use.
We used the KM2 MPPT converters to drive the TEGs efficiently.
