Design and Fabrication of Regenerative Braking System
Keywords:Generator, Regenerative braking, Flywheel, Brake pad, Energy recovery
Regenerative braking is an energy efficiency mechanism that slows an automobile or object by converting its Kinetic Energy (K.E) into a form that can be either used instantly or stored until needed. Using a regenerative braking system in automobiles enables us to recover the K.E. of the automobile to a few extents that are lost during the braking process. This energy is often reserved during a battery or bank of capacitors for later use. Energy also can be reserved with the subordinates of a rotating flywheel which is one among the foremost inexpensive and effective methods of storing and regenerating power. A brake-pad congregation arranged parallel with the hub of a ground-contact wheel is operated upon braking to provide frictional contact in the halfway of the hub and clutch mechanism, while putting in an operation decelerating torque to the wheel, to accumulate energy over respective braking events. Automobiles run by electric motors make use of the motor as a generator when operating regenerative braking and its output is supplied to an electrical load.
