Experimental Analysis on Generation of Electricity Through Braking System (Regenerative Braking System)

Rishi Sharma, Shivansh Kumar, Abhishek Gupta, Vijay Kumar, Sanjay Kumar


In conventional braking system the motion is retarded or stopped by absorbing kinetic energy by friction, by making the contact of the moving body with frictional rubber pad (called brake liner) which causes the absorption of kinetic energy, and this is wasted in form of heat in surroundings. Each time we brake, the momentum of vehicle is absorbed that it has gained by it and to re-accelerate the vehicle. As the basic law of Physics says ‘energy can neither be created nor be destroyed it can only be converted from one form to another. That is the basic concept of regenerative (“regent”) brakes, which provide braking for the system when needed by converting the available energy to some usable form.
