The first system transforming infrared radiation into electric energy.

 

System

Heatconv is an innovative concept for generating electric energy by capturing infrared radiation. The system is designed to capture radiation and optimize it to transform it in electricity.

Heatconv produces clean and sustainable energy from an alternative source. This system has many applications including consumer electronics (computers, tablets, or smartphones), heaters, air-conditioning, automotive system, recovery of energy from industrial processes and, in the future, it could be use in the airspace industry. 

It could also be used to optimize the efficiency of solar installations by integrating it as a cooling system.        

What is infrared radiation?

Infrared radiation (IR), is a thermal and electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength of 0,7 µm to 1,000 µm (microns). This is an imperceptible range for the human eye, it is in a range between Red and microwave radiation.

 

Infrared radiation is emitted by any object with a temperature above 0 Kelvin equal to −273,15 Celsius (Absolute Zero). It could be considered a form of radiation heat with contactless transmission. It is an important potential source for generating electricity. 

 

Technology 

Sheet Metal

Eliminated polarization.

 

Captures infrared radiation.

Sheet Metal

Polarizes radiation.

 

Polarization Filter

Case with thermal insulation

Covers and insulates the system.

Polarizing Glass

Exposed to the environment.

 

Plate with photodiodes

Transforms the energy.

Nematic Material 

Polarizes radiation.

The conversion module has a series of adjacent plates that polarize, filter, and capture infrared radiation in the interior of the system. The ‘captured’ radiation is stimulated by reflections in the internal layers of the system and generating a greenhouse effect in the interior of the system and optimizing the radiation.

Those internal layers also concentrate radiation on a series of silicon photodiodes that transform IR radiation into electricity.

 Uses

Hearconv thermal conversion modules permits harvesting infrared radiation to generate electricity in a variety of areas like:

 

Consumer electronics

Computers, tablets, smartphones. 

Cooling systems

Industrial refrigeration, 

household refrigeration, 

vehicles.

Solar Panels
