Speed breaker, Rack and pinion mechanism, kinetic energy, power generation.
We illustrate generation of electricity through speed breakers. Here we used a technique of harvesting energy by three mechanisms- Rack and pinion mechanism .This technique is beneficial to those areas where generation of electricity is a difficult task. When a vehicle moves over the speed breakers its kinetic energy which is due its speed, friction between road and its wheels .The world is growing at a rapid pace. Among many vital sectors of our social life, transportation sector has a key role to play. It is an ever growing sector with the escalating population, growing needs and creeping number of vehicle users. The traffic on the roads becomes doubled or tripled, at alarming rates. If vehicular motion can be put to generate useful power, it can be put to effective use. This idea has mothered the invention of “power generation through speed breakers”, inspired by various other existing designs .To generate power using speed breakers through rack and pinion mechanism by tapping the energy and utilizing it for various purposes such as lightening the street lights, etc. This electrical energy is in the form of DC and we used inverter which converts DC into AC. Large amount of electricity can be generated saving lot of money and if implemented will be very beneficial for Government.
