Analytical Study on Performance of Regenerative Braking System using of Plastic Matrix Material Flywheel in Automobile
Abhisheak Gangwar | Himanshu Dixit
Abstract: As in todays century, where there is more requirement of energy and the use of this energy at higher rate, but the sources are very less in todays time so there is a need of specific technology that recovers the energy, which usually gets wasted. In case of automobiles one of the latest technologies is the regenerative braking system with some advance changes and new techniques. Generally in automobiles whenever the driver use the brake paddle to stop or slow down the vehicle then the kinetic energy gets wasted due to friction in the form of heat energy. Using regenerative braking system in automobile we can store this wasted energy and again use this energy in the vehicle to accelerate it or to drive some electrical components . There are two methods of utilizing the kinetic energy that is usually wasted by converting it into either electrical energy or into mechanical energy. Regenerative braking system can convert the kinetic energy into electrical energy with help of electric motor/generator. And it can also converts the kinetic energy into mechanical energy, which is supplied to the vehicle whenever it is needed, with the help of a flywheel which is made of advance material (plastic matrix) and new design. Today, almost every manufacturer is developing the ways to recover a significant portion of this wasted energy with the use of regenerative braking.
