Could you get it to work, sure. There are dozens of ways to turn heat into energy. Could you get it to work at scale and cost effectively? Almost certainly not. There's just not enough energy in heated air to do much, and the capital costs of the system break the effort. This is another entry into the "Why can't Stirling engines give us almost free ...

Datasheet says you can't put a voltage lower than VSS on any pin: This is because there are reverse biased diodes between the most pins and VDD and VSS. If you apply a negative voltage the diode to VSS becomes forward biased and current will flow. The forward drop of the diode before it turns on to conduct is about -0.6 V. Applying a voltage more negative ...

All the water moving around inside your plant was originally set into motion with pumps designed to get the right amount of water to the right point in the plumbing in the right amount of time. Imagine now that we insert power-extraction turbines in the flow through those pipes. This extracts the energy content of the moving water and leaves no dynamic head ...
