This research contributes to the literature on case studies of urban schools, in hopes of highlighting inequity of funding versus need in...

Generating Electricity More Efficiently with Multiphase Thermoelectric Converter

submitted by: MFerreiraJr
The Multiphase Thermoelectric Converter is a direct thermal-to-electrical energy conversion system designed in order to harvest most of the waste heat energy efficiently into electricity. Conceptually, it works by ionizing hot coolant in order to force it F=q(v × B) to push its ions against moving magnetic fields doing useful work converting thermal energy directly into electric power at high efficiency with almost no moving parts. Essentially, it can be comprised of two sets of concentric...
