The paper deals with an issue of waste heat recovery in a selected configuration of an internal combustion engine. A possibility of using thermoelectric cells (currently available on the market) for production of electricity with heat extracted from the exhaust gas was considered. The calculations were made using specialized software. Features and design assumptions of the heat recovery system were presented and their influence on parameters of the entire system was investigated (efficiency of the internal combustion engine, power, etc.). An assessment of the applicability of the energy recovery system based on thermoelectric effects and characteristic of the proposed configuration was performed. Some issues that require further research have been highlighted.
