Thermoelectric Breakthrough can Replace IC Engines

IC Engines or Internal Combustion Engines are used in all types of Motor Vehicles. They convert Organic Fuel to Motion by tiny combustive explosions in a Cylinder-Piston arrangement. The use of Electricity here is only the spark for ignition.

These have a very low efficiency analogous to the Incandescent Tungsten Filament Bulb, The traditional bulb is being replaced by the emerging Energy Efficient LED Lighting Technology.

If we can convert Ethanol Fuel to heat by combustion, that is easy. Then the entire heat is absorbed by Thermoelectric Cell Arrays, like the Solar Cells absorb The radiation from the sun. The EMF from the Thermoelectric Cell Array can be a cascaded to generate enough electricity to charge the Rechargeable Batteries in an Electric Vehicle.

The most important thing is ….. The Material/Compound that can give a good Heat to Electricity Conversion, has still not been discovered. This has be as good as a Solar Cell.

Some Breakthrough in Semiconductor Physics, Nanotechnology, Material Science or Electrochemistry by the Scientists in Fundamental Research and Applied Science, can make the Internal Combustion Engine Obsolete.

Thermal Electricity can also make possible, ‘on the fly’ Electricity from anything that can burn. Coal, wood, twigs, dried leaves, biogas, ethanol can fire Mini Thermal Engines; that make Heat into Electricity to drive Electric Motors backed up by supercaps or rechargeable batteries.

The only other way is to offset gravity as shown in the right, this was a graphic i made in 1999 for a poem on my website.
