Advantages & Disadvantages
Walking is the most common activity in human
When a person walks, he loses energy to the
This energy can be tapped and converted in the
usable form such as in electrical form.
Conventional & Non-conventional
Energy produced by coal, petroleum, natural
gas etc. are called conventional sources.
where as the sources like biomass, wind,
solar etc. are called non conventional energy
AN ALTERNATIVE ENERGY
Footsteps are an untapped
The Challenge – convert
footstep energy to electrical
The Solution – using
NEED OF THE SYSTEM
The utilization of waste energy of foot power
with human motion is very important for
highly populated countries.
India and China where the roads, railway
stations, temples, etc. are all over crowded and
millions of people move around the clock.
When a pedestrian steps on the top plate of the
device, the plate will dip down slightly.
The downward movement of the plate results in
rotation of the shaft of an electrical alternator
fitted in the device.
The pushing power is converted into electricity
The piezoelectric material is fixed at the plane.
The spring is used to return the inclined step in
same position by releasing the load.
The shaft of generator is connected to the
piezoelectric material. DC is generated.
