Abstract

In the present day scenario the fossil fuel sources are fast depleting and their combustion products are causing global environmental problems. So it is inevitable to shift towards the use of renewable energy resources which in turn will reduce pollution and saves fossil fuels. For meeting the regular demand of the energy we need to design a system such that electricity can be produced without destroying the nature. Road power generation is an alternative technology which uses the pressure due to the weight of vehicles for generation of power. Our project attempts to show how energy can be tapped and used at a commonly used system, the road speed breakers. The number of vehicles passing over the speed breaker on the roads is increasing day by day. There is possibility of tapping the energy and generating power by making the speed breaker as a power generation unit. The generated power can be used to light up nearby street lights. In the present work, a working model of the power generation unit is made. A similar model of the system has also been modeled in Pro-E. Design of each component is carried out using standard procedures. The components are fabricated and are finally assembled. The linear motion of the lever is converted into rotary motion using a crank shaft. The speed obtained is in turn amplified by using a set of gears. This amplified speed is used to run a generator to produce power. Theoretical calculations of power and the practical power obtained are compared in order to find the efficiency of the power generation unit. The utilization of energy is an indication of growth of a nation. This work utilizes one of the best sources of energy we get in our day to day life.

Keywords: power generation, energy conservation, speed breaker, connecting rod and Crankshaft.
