Maglev Power Generator

K. Sai Kumar [3] | G. Sai Sushrutha [2]

Abstract: In todays world, with the increase in technology, power has become a basic requirement. Power can be generated through various sources. The most popular technique of generating power in developing countries like India is by using coal, fossil fuels, natural gas which are exhaustible and they also result in various kinds of threats to the environment. So, alternatives that can replace these kinds of energy sources are being implemented. Magnetic energy and strong magnetic fields can be one of them. This thesis gives an idea about how power can be generated through magnetic levitation. When a smaller magnet which is connected to a DC machine by certain means, is levitating above a base magnet of high magnetic field intensity, the mechanical energy to the machine is provided by the rotation of the levitating magnet and this mechanical energy can be converted into electrical energy and hence, power can be supplied. Thus, it can be used as a generator.

Keywords: Magnetic levitation, working principle of DC generator, rotation of the levitating magnet
