Transforming Energy Making Use of Pyroelectric: A Conservation Technique

Shivam Dewan and Paras Arya
Abstract—A lot of energy around us gets wasted, keeping in mind, the increasing energy demand and scarcity of resources, we have devised an idea to conserve the heat energy, which gets emitted out by the refrigerator. The technique works as follows : a pyrolectric transducer is attached to the compressor pump of the refrigerator, aligned in such a way that one side of it is line other contact with the compressor and other with the wall( ceiling ) or the other part is at room temperature. This temperature of the compressor is approx. 50-75 celsius higher than the room temperature. This creates a temperature difference between the two sided of the transducer which in turn modifies the orientation of the atoms, leading to the change in polarization and thus giving rise to a constant voltage across the transducer(pyroelectric).This transducer is further connected to a capacitor. Due to this voltage across the transducer, the capacitor gets charged up and this can be further used as a supply to any appliance (operating at low voltage).

Index Terms—Capacitor, compressor, pyroelectric, sustainable energy.
