Project Name : Kinetic Energy recovery system
Theme Name : Natural Resource & their Conservation
Scientific Principle: It works on the principle of law of conservation of energy in which the kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy. Dynamo and
flywheel use this principle to convert the kinetic energy into chemical energy which is stored in a cell.
Method: KERS as automotive system for recovering a moving vehicle’s kinetic energy while applying the brakes. The recovered energy is stored in a reservoir such as battery for later use under acceleration.
We will use the dynamo to produce electricity. We will place dynamo on roads which will act as speed breaker and will also convert kinetic energy to electric energy. A series of dynamos on roads will produce substantial amount of electricity which will be used to light up street light, commercial activity, etc. This will be used in a place where there is heavy traffic. KERS can be used in formula one car to conserve the kinetic energy and store it for alternative use.
1. Eco Friendly
2. Conserve energy which will be wasted if not utilized.
3. Act as a speed barrier and can help in decreasing accidents.
Application in different domain of life:
1. The electricity conserved can be used in lighting advertisings boards, charging mobile phones etc.
2. If used in large a scale it can help to produce electricity for commercial purpose.
Further scope: Road safety and production of electricity at the same time.
Name of the School: Sai International School, Bhubaneswar, Odisha.
