Abstract
Solar thermal power generation device is based on Shape Memory Alloy, utilizing the shape memory alloy effect to convert thermal energy to electrical energy. Since clean energy, like solar power can contribute to sustainable economic development, we design a solar power generation device: Solar thermal power generation device based on Shape Memory Alloy. Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) refers to the alloy that has Shape Memory Effect. Mechanical properties of Shape Memory Alloy enable it to fulfill shape memory function mainly as the outside temperature changes or external force is applied. The shape of shape memory alloy changes along with temperature change. The device we design uses this feature to drive the wheels and thus provide driving force to direct current electricity machine. And then the direct current electricity will be sent to electrical appliance, eventually achieving the conversion from thermal energy to electrical energy.
