WINDS OF CHANGE: TURBINE TURNS TRAFFIC INTO ENERGY

  • SVCEians Came up with an innovative idea from freely available from the wind energy.
  • The final year students of SVCE Engineering Bangalore have designed the turbine under the guidance of  Sridhar Despande.
  • They have designed a vertical turbine that harnesses turbulence to generate electricity from vehicles on high ways.
  • The turbines are designed to rotate even at low wind speeds since highways are designed for 40, 60 and 8o km/hr speed lanes.These turbines are placed
    on the dividers
  • These can be used to power streetlights, caution lights and traffic lights in the city. Which in turn can reduce dependence on power from conventional resources.
  • The unit assembled by the team costs about Rs.6500. inclusive of the circuits.If mass produced the expenses could come down substantially.
  • This model could potentially help ease an energy crisis as it harnesses freely available wind energy and is renewable.
