  1. 1. Foot Step Power Generation
  2. 2. CONTENTS  INTRODUCTION  NEED OF THE SYSTEM  PRINCIPLE  BLOCK DIAGRAM  WORKING  APPLICATIONS  ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES  CONCLUSION
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION Walking is the most common activity in human life. When a person walks, he loses energy to the road. This energy can be tapped and converted in the usable form such as in electrical form.
  4. 4. AN ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCE  Footsteps are an untapped natural resource.  The Challenge – convert footstep energy to electrical energy.  The Solution – using piezoelectric material.
  5. 5. NEED OF THE SYSTEM The utilization of waste energy of foot power with human motion is very important for highly populated countries. India and China where the roads, railway stations, temples, etc. are all over crowded and millions of people move around the clock.
  6. 6. BASIC PRINCIPLE When a pedestrian steps on the top plate of the device, the plate will dip down slightly. The downward movement of the plate results in rotation of the shaft of an electrical alternator fitted in the device.
  7. 7. FOOT STEP ARRANGEMENT PIEZO-ELECTRIC MATERIAL DC GENERATOR BATTERY INVERTER LIGHT LOAD BLOCK DIAGRAM
  8. 8. MODEL OF FOOTSTEP ENERGY GENERATION
  9. 9. PIEZOELECTRIC SENSOR  A piezoelectric sensor is a device that uses the piezoelectric effect to measure pressure, accele ration, strain or force by converting them to an electrical signal.
  10. 10. INVERTER  An inverter is an electronic device that converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).  The input voltage, output voltage and frequency, and overall power handling depend on the design of the specific device.
  11. 11. LEAD ACID BATTERY Specifications 12V 1.3Ah sealed lead acid battery 1. high quality and high reliability. 2. maintenance free . 3. long life cycle.
  12. 12. WORKING  When ever force is applied on piezo electric crystals that force is converted to Electrical energy is used to drive DC loads.  Minute voltage Which is stored in the Lead Acid battery. The battery is connected to the inverter.  This inverter is used to convert the 12 Volt D.C to the 230 Volt A.C. This 230 Volt A.C voltage is used to activate the loads.
  13. 13. APPLICATIONS  Foot step generated power can be used for agricultural, home applications, street-lighting.  Foot step power generation can be used in emergency power failure situations.
  14. 14. ADVANTAGES • Power generation is simply walking on step. • No need fuel input. • This is a Non-conventional system. • Power also generated by running. • Battery is used to store the generated power.
  15. 15. DISADVANTAGES  Only applicable for the particular place.  Initial cost of this arrangement is high.  Mechanical moving part is high.  Care should be taken for batteries.
  16. 16.  In concluding the words of our project, since the power generation using foot step get its energy requirements from the Non-renewable source of energy.  It is very useful to the places all roads and as well as all kind of foot step which is used to generate the non conventional energy like electricity.  It is able to extend this project by using same arrangement and construct in the foot steps/speed breaker so that increase the power production rate by fixing school and colleges, highways etc. CONCLUSIONS
