In recent years, automotive companies have tried to implement in their vehicles devices that supply renewable energy to the electromechanical systems that make them up, giving rise to well know hybrid and electric cars. The main idea to produce this kind of energy is focused on taking advantage of resources that in the past were useless due to the lack of technology. This work presents a preliminary system of electrical charge from the use of sun heat that is stored in the front panel of the car while it is parked in such a way that the solar radiation falls directly on it. The system uses inversely a Peltier cell, an electronic element that is composed of plates of semiconductor material that has the property of generating heat or cold depending on the polarity that is applied to the plates, for this case one of the cell faces is used to capture the heat energy through the vehicle front windshield. This work presents a system of heat conversion in electrical energy using a Peltier cell, preliminary experimental results obtained are discussed.
