Abstract

Now-a-days power has become a major and basic need for human life. As the population is drastically increasing day-by-day an also conventional resources are decreasing, there comes the necessity of depending on the non-conventional sources for generation of power. Hence the main focus is given n renewable resources like wind energy, solar energy and tidal energy. So our project is based on generation of power by human footsteps. Basically, while walking or dancing, humans possess some kinetic energy which is being wasted. So by utilizing this kinetic energy we can produce power by using the arrangement of “Tiles”. As per our idea of this power generation project, when a person walks particularly on the tiles fixed releasing kinetic energy. Hence the piston fixed to the tile will compress the air allowing the air to flow to the tank. This tank will store the pressurized air. As the tank outlet is connected to the motor, this pressurized air will be passed to through the outlet, which enables the air motor to run. This motor is coupled to the generator which produces electricity. The electricity produced in this project will be stored using battery. The energy saved in this project during daytime can be used for traffic signals, street lights, apartment, public mobile charging spots, electric vehicles charging spots and many more. The energy produced can also fulfil the future demands. The working principle of our project is based on Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES).
