Birds use their wings to generate lift and thrust for locomotion. The difference in air pressures around the airfoil shaped wings generates lift and thrust. Birds also flap their wings and while flapping they also pitch (rotate) them about a lateral axis.
As apart of our final year project, our team is working to set up vertical axis wind turbines(VAWT) along sides of railway tracks. We intend to utilize the gust of wind produced by trains moving by to move these vertical axis wind turbines and generate electricity.
Solar photovoltaic are gaining popularity in the age for sustainable clean renewable energy source grows louder. It is well known that Sun’s energy on earth is expressed as 1kw/ square meter at AM 1. Many PV technologies have been developed to convert this energy into electrical energy.
A major contributor to global warming is the burning of fossil fuels for various activities. Passenger cars consume billions of gallons of petrol or its derivatives each year to power their internal combustion engines. About 53% of usable energy from the engine goes into overcoming aerodynamic drag.
Nano leaves convert the visible spectrum of light and also convert invisible light, known as infrared light or radiation. Due to the unique abilities of Nano antenna electromagnetic collectors in these Nano leaves which convert visible and mid-infrared radiation into electricity,
"Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be converted from one form to another"- Albert Einstein.
Humanity has always challenged itself to lead the ongoing race of developing Sustainable Energy Resources,
