An innovative project on energy developed by the Team GIT comprising of Omkar Gurav and Bipin Mohite of Mechanical Engineering Department, KLS Gogte Institute of Technology, Belagavi under the guidance of Dr. Shrinivas L. Gombi, Professor, Mechanical Engineering Dept. has been short-listed in the top 100 project teams pan India after rigorous rounds of the selection process in the KPIT Sparkle 2021 competition.
The project is based on the generation of electricity in cars by utilizing the rotational energy of the wheels with appropriate modifications in the braking system.
More than 90% of world power is being generated using electromagnets based on faradays law of electromagnetic induction. Many new technologies were discovered with time which led to a drastic change in the perception of electric energy. We are using N-52 Neodymium magnets which are placed on the outer periphery of the disc rotor in the Disc braking system which acts as a rotor.
The copper solenoids are mounted on the inner top closed surface of the caliper which acts as a stator. This whole assembly resembles the core elements of the generator. While testing the power extracted was checked with help of a digital multimeter. Initial results are motivating us to create a perfect strong prototype for better applications.
KPIT Technologies Ltd had invited students across India to develop next-generation technologies in Energy & Mobility for the Future in their KPIT Sparkle 2020 competition event with the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, as its knowledge partner.
It had received more than 22000+ registrations from more than 1121 engineering and science colleges including 28 premier institutes like IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) and NIT (National Institutes of Technology) in the pre-qualification stage. Based on the novelty, affordability and commercial viability evaluators shortlisted 100 top teams out of 1900 teams and KLSGIT was one amongst them.
