Abstract
This paper presents an alternative method of power generation with the help of piezo sensors which converts force or pressure applied on it to electric form which is basically piezoelectric effect. This system generates power with the help of piezo sensors and the power generated and number of steps responsible for generating power is displayed on LCD display with help of ATMEGA-328 microcontroller. Power generation and its use is one of the issues. Now-a day’s numbers of power sources are present, non-renewable & renewable, but still we can’t overcome our power needs. Among these human population is one of the resources. We are doing generation of power by walking or running. The generated power will be stored and then we can use it for domestic purpose. This system can be installed at homes, schools, colleges, where the people move around the clock. When people walk on the steps or that of platform, power is generated by using weight of person. The control mechanism carries piezoelectric sensor, this mechanical energy applied on the crystal is converted into electrical energy when there is some vibrations, stress or straining force exerted by foot on flat platform.
