The experimental work carried out gives an idea of utilizing the recovered energy from the domestic pressure cooker for converting the steam power released at high pressure into the other form of electric power with the self-prepared setup. In this concept, the method of saving energy by means of recovering, and using of insulator for reducing the heat losses are applied. The reduction of time of heating is achieved by copper coating at the bottom of the pressure cooker, which helps the heat transfer from the burner to the sterilizer vessel fastly, so that the loss of heat from the burner to the vessel and overall heat losses in the entire setup are optimized to run the experiment successfully. The setup not only converts the energy, but also helps to minimize the time of cooking and reduction of fuel usage, as it is the major requisite in our day to day life for cost minimization too. The combination of reducing the enthalpy losses through steam and guiding the pressure of dissipated steam on to the turbine is carried out for achieving the aim of the work.
