Self Charging Electric Vehicle
Pranav Kumar Soni | Rasmi Rajan Samranthay
Abstract: In this era conservation of energy is the most necessary part of the society and as automobile is an important part of society in day to day life, hence the conservation of energy as well as pollution due to the use of Bio-fuels in automobile sector is a challenging job. So energy conservation and pollution free vehicle became most important factor. To solve this issue the concept of Electric Vehicle (EV) (electricity powered automobile) system was introduced, this can be used in all type of automobiles such as cars, bus; truck etc. But once the battery of EV is charged it travels a limited distance, again we have to charge the battery of vehicle, which is a time consuming process. If one self charging EV is assembled using some kind of alternators with other circuitries, which can charge the battery simultaneously when it is moving, then the problem can be solved. We can use a single powerful battery or two batteries for this case. Single battery can be charged in static manner as well as when the vehicle is moving. For this case the circuit connection may be complicated and the battery life may be decreased. But if we use two different batteries one for driving the motor and simultaneously another will charged during first one discharges. After the first battery drained the second battery will drive the motor and the first battery will be charged mean while. This project is aimed to develop a prototype of a self-charging Electric Vehicle. The arrangement of batteries will be done in such a way that the batteries will be charged alternatively. Alternators with mechanical joint with driver motor and gear box with some amplifying circuits with other elements are used in this arrangement. However this will minimize the rate of energy waste and maximize the energy utilization and also the traveling range of Electric Vehicle can be increased and will not be a time consuming process to charge the vehicle for next journey. But there will be a speed limit for this type of vehicle.
