AbstractOne of the main directions of development of power transmission systems in vehicles involves improvement of energy efficiency of combustion engines, especially reduction of the loss related to waste heat in cooling and exhaust systems. The traditional role of the exhaust system is to remove exhaust gases from a combustion engine and muffle the noise created during the engine’s operation. Relevant distribution of temperatures along the entire length of the exhaust system is a very important element in such a complex structure. The examples could be the particulate solids filter or the converter which have to reach a relevant temperature to operate properly while the temperature’s growth is simultaneously restricted due to the limitations associated with the materials used. The research was conducted while using the ECOTEC 1.8 litre engine from Opel, the X18XE model. The engine was installed in a testbed, in the mechatronic lab at the Faculty of Automotive and Construction Machinery Engineering (SIMR) of Warsaw University of Technology. The paper reviews the energy efficiency of TEG depending on deferent parameters of gas stream an weather conditions. The results of the experiment are presented in the last section of the article.
