Before researching heat-generated cooling opportunities, one must first determine the magnitude of the waste heat energy available from the engine Schematic in a vehicle to see if it is significant. The average fuel economy of a car in the US is near 21 mpg, and a representative vehicle could be the Ford Taurus with a 3.0-L engine and a maximum output power of 115 kW. Figure 1 shows that the waste heat available for a representative 115-kW engine varies from 20 to 400 kW across the engine map, with an average value over the FTP cycle of 23 kW. The temperatures of the waste heat range from 200°C surface temperatures to 600°C gas temperatures. Engine Waste Power (kW), Max Power 115 kW Based on 1991 Dodge Caravan 3.0-L (102 kW) SIEngine - transient data.
