Abstract

In this paper, design of the mechanical system of the regenerative braking have been presented. The mechanism has been proposed to store brake energy in a spiral spring and release it back to the vehicle transmission. Storing the excess mechanical or electrical energy to use it at high demand time has great importance for applications at every scale because of irregularities of demand and supply. Energy storage in elastic deformations in the mechanical domain offers an alternative to the electrical, electrochemical, chemical, and thermal energy storage approaches studied in the recent years. This concept of low-cost Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) can store energy that is lost during braking in a spiral spring and release it smoothly to the vehicle whenever required. The paper presents the simple and lucid design of the mechanism that uses the combinations of belt and pulley. A sample calculation on amount of energy to be stored has been performed to find out the spring parameters so that the calculation can be replicated and the system can be customized for each automobile.
