Abstract

A miniature pump based on catalytic combustion-driven thermal transpiration was designed in this study. This designed pump was further used to build a miniature power generator that has self-pumping and power generation integrated into one device, has no moving parts and operates only on thermal and electrochemical energy supplied by hydrocarbon fuels. A solid oxide fuel cell tested with this power generator obtained a power density of 20 mW/cm2.
