Research overview:
The object of this study is to convert low-grade thermal energy into electric energy using shape memory effect of Nitinol (TiNi) wire. For this reason, the Nitinol heat engine is fabricated, which drives at high speed by small temperature difference utilizing hot water such as hot waste water and hotsprings. Finally this engine is combined to dynamo.
