Abstract

This paper reports on the design, thermodynamic cycle, and experimental results of an ejector driven micro turbine generator. For this cycle, an ejector, as opposed to a compressor, creates a pressure gradient to drive a turbine. When connected to a micro-generator and an ethanol vapor boiler, a power output of 7.5 mW is delivered to a resistive load of 300 Ω at an angular velocity of 27,360 RPM.
