In order to improve the thermal efficiency and fuel economy of automobile engine, make full use of the waste heat of automobile exhaust for energy saving and emission reduction, a flat-plate type of thermoelectric power generation(TEG) device is designed which makes full use of the car exhaust gas waste heat. Firstly, introduce the basic principle of the TEG; choose the suitable TEG sheet according to the operating characteristics of general gasoline engine. Secondly, establish the device model of exhaust waste heat TEG by CATIA 3D software, choose the install method and quantity of TEG sheet, design the suitable circuit for the system, at the same time, analyze of the basic application of the device. Finally, according to the data analysis and calcu-lation, find the cost and feasibility of the TEG device. The calculation results show that, the fuel saving ratio of the system is 0.03L/h and it can recover the cost in 4 years. So, the TEG device has certain feasibility and extensive application prospect.
