Thermoelectric generators (TEGs) can directly convert heat energy to electrical energy and have been employed in the automobile industry to recover waste heat energy. Meanwhile, solar energy can also be used in Electric Vehicles. In this paper, a thermoelectric-photovoltaic hybrid energy system composed of two TEGs and one photovoltaic generator is proposed for hybrid electric vehicles. A Ćuk-Ćuk-Ćuk multiple-input DC-DC converter (MIC) is adopted to draw power from different energy sources… CONTINUE READING
