Wind, Turbine Ventilator, Electricity PMDC Generator


this paper concentrates on the generation of electricity by using the method of rotation of wind turbine due to the wind induced by the movement of the train. A roof top turbine ventilator can be applicable for this scenario as they will not interrupt the overhead lines nor cause danger to birds. This paper consisting of a turbine ventilator and coupled to the Permanent Magnet Direct Current (PMDC) generator is mounted on the train with the required mechanical support. The electricity thus produced is used to supply the various loads in a train cabin. The remaining power is stored in batteries for future use. This will reduce the need of non-renewable and polluting sources of energy and the wastage of the wind stimulated by the movement of trains.
