The aim of this work is to generate free electricity for general use, through wind energy which is created due to the motion of trains. This is achieved by using a dynamo with adjustments such that it can support a fan and then using it as a small wind turbine. By creating a closely developed arrangement of many such dynamos mounted on the roofs of each compartment of trains, supported by feeding the outputs of all these dynamos systematically to a central electrical transmission line, we can feed all the energy produced to a battery for further use. Energy resources in our modern fast paced techno world is fast depleting .Hence, a renewable energy source is much required at the moment. Thus researching new and innovative systems in renewable energy sector is an indispensable prerequisite. This project attempts to propose a model for generating clean energy by harnessing the power of wind on moving trains by installing a windmill on the top (roof) of train and then coupling it with a dynamo. The energy generated through the rotation of the blades is stored in a battery.
