Overview: MEMS-TAR

Quoting from: http://www.io.com/~frg/

This tiny MEMS thermoacoustic generator converts heat into electricity. The source of heat can be solar radiation, combustible fuel, even body heat. It requires no maintenance and is cost competitive with all existing power generation equipment.

The MEMS-TAR is manufactured using the same equipment and processes used in the manufacture of computer chips. It is packaged in single discrete units, and in integrated panel arrays. Power conditioning circuitry is built right into the chip.

Applications:

  • Telecommunications satellite power and space power applications.
  • Commercial power generation; Energy recovery (co-generation).
  • Solar electric and air-conditioning systems for individual homes, businesses and industry.
  • Biomedical prosthetics and artificial organs that operate from body heat.
  • Alarms, GPS locator beacons and physiological data transmitters.
  • Sensors and controls
  • Hundreds of consumer appliances and novelty items.

Subject: Re: [pes_ee] Thermal Acoustic Resonator

This is an excellent application of conventional science.  It has tremendous potential for cheaply utilizing low temperature heat.  It is Carnot-limited, but the device is simple and cheap to make and can produce electricity from heat sources that usually are ignored.  It is probably a Stirling cycle.  Piston Stirlings are usually somewhat high tech and costly.  Thermoacoustics has the potential to be far simpler and cheaper, and these people seem to have a good idea.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
