Development of Wind Operated Bike
Keywords:Wind operated, Hybrid, Nonconventional
The basic aim of a wind-operated bike is to ensure safe and eco-friendly drive. Here, the bike is run with the help of the battery. When we accelerate the throttle, the electric current from battery passes to controller. Then controller will sense the electric power according to the throttle position. It transmits the electric current to BLDC motor. E-bike battery has limitation that it runs only around 70 km and after that, the battery will be discharged. Therefore, the interesting thing about the wind-operated bike is the battery will continuously charge with the help of the DC motor. The DC motor having 300 R.P.M. and it produces 14v and 0.40A by using of fan. The fan is directly attached to the DC motor, we get continuous power at specific speed of the bike, and battery will be charged continually. The wind-operated bike must be eco- friendly i.e. there should be no emission; there should be enough speed to travel, efficiency and comfort. Its body should be strong enough to withstand the road shocks or bumps. There should be less charging time for charging the vehicle whenever it is required.
