Abstract—Use of bio-degradable waste has been effective in power production. Bio-degradable waste undergoes a process of anaerobic digestion after which they are subjected to Induction Heating. Methane gas is produced, which then powers the methanol fuel cells. The Proposed technique ensures complete safety; detectors and valves are installed at various places to detect any minor or major anomalies. All these detectors and valves are coordinated and regulated by a main controller (PLC).
Index Terms—Bio-degradable waste, Anaerobic digestion, Cyclo-converters, Induction Heating, Methanol Fuel Cell, Power System Control.
