Generation of electricity by speed breaker


This project harvests energy from speed breaker by making gear arrangement and using electronic gadgets.My Team Members:1)Abhishek Kumar, 2)Paras Nachaal, 3)Arshad Ali Khan, 4)Viplove Kumar, 5)Ujjwal Kumar. Large amounts amount of electricity can be generated saving lot of money. And if implemented will be very beneficial for government .When vehicle is in motion it produces various forms of energy like, due to friction between vehicle?s wheel and road i.e. rough surface HEAT Energy is produced, also When vehicle traveling at high speed strikes the wind. The principle involved is POTENTIAL ENERGY TO ELECTRICAL ENERGY CONVERSION. There is a system to generate power by converting the potential energy generated by a vehicle going up on a speed breaker into kinetic energy. When the vehicle moves over the inclined plates, it gains height resulting in increase in potential energy, which is wasted in a conventional rumble strip. When the breaker comes down, then crank a lever fitted to a ratchet-wheel type mechanism (a angular motion converter) which in turn rotates a geared shaft loaded with recoil springs. The output of this shaft is coupled to a dynamo to convert kinetic energy into electricity. We are looking forward to conserve the kinetic energy that gone wasted, while vehicles move. The number of vehicles passing over speed breaker on road is increasing day by day. Beneath speed breaker, setting up an electro-mechanical unit known to be power hump, could help us conserving this energy and use it for power generation. The electrical output can be improved by arranging these power humps in series. This generated power can be stored, by using different electrical devices. We can supply this energy to street lights, traffic lights, and nearby areas, and thus helps in country?s economy. We could make it more efficient, by also having a solar panels that provides for power needs while the vehicles were not moving.
