This paper deals about the waste heat recovery from automobiles using Thermo electric generator (TEG).Waste energy from automotive engine exhaust is converted into electrical energy to power a 12V batter using Thermoelectric Generator. There are three subsystems for this model the thermoelectric generator system, heat exchanger and power conditioning unit. The PCU consists of a buck-boost converter. The simulation results shows boost converter in Power conditioning unit is suitable for Thermoelectric Generator system.
