A Thermophotovoltaic Catalytic Flow Reactor for Portable Power Generation.

Licht, Abigail.

Abstract: Although batteries are the standard technology for potable power generation, they have relatively low energy densities: on average 0.2 kWhr/kg. Hydrocarbons, on the other hand, can have energy densities as high as 12 kWhr/kg, such that even an inefficient fuel-powered portable generator could surpass the performance of state of the art batteries. Moreover, while some of the most energy-d... read more
