Abstract

This research was conducted to determine the character of the TEG module as a source of electrical energy in utilizing heat in the chimney wall of an egg rack drying machine that uses rice husk as engine furnace fuel. The test is carried out by utilizing heat on 2 pieces of chimney (upper chimney and lower chimney) separated by a Heat Exchanger (HE) with a furnace blower speed of 2600 rpm and environmental blower speed of 2800 rpm with the amount of thermoelectric used as many as 44 units. The results show that the TEG module in the upper chimney obtained temperature difference (∆T), voltage difference (∆V) and power (P) respectively ∆T 38.75 ° C; ∆V 3.68 Volts; P 0.796 Watt and for the lower chimney respectively ∆T 73.25 ° C; ∆V 12.26 Volts; P 2.446 Watt.
