Improving Capacity Thermoelectric Generator Using Current Booster Circuit

CekmasCekdin,Zainuddin Nawawi,Muhammad Faizal

Formerly to increase the current in the power electronics device is through a transformer by means of making the incoming voltage on the primary side large and the current small. Then to get a large current, the output voltage on the secondary side is reduced and the current rises. A 550Watt power is injected on the primary side of a single phase transformer with a voltage of 220 Volts and a current of 2.5 Amperes. The objective is to increase the current 20fold to 50 Amperes. Assuming an ideal transformer, then with the equation of V1I1 = V2I2 the voltage on the secondary side of the transformer is designed with 11 Volt voltage. To produce current and dc voltage on the secondary side of the transformer a rectifier or adapter is installed. And also so far the dc current of 0.5 Ampere with a 10 Volt dc voltage can only be increased in the range of 1 to 2 Amperes in the range of 10 to 12 Volt dc voltage. The presence of a circuit of Current Booster innovated / equipped with TIP 3055 type transistors, dc current from 2 to 3 Amperes at 30 Volt dc voltage can be increased up to 15 Amperes of fixed voltage of 30 Volt dc. In this circuit the current rises and the voltage remains.
