IIT Madras Researchers Developed ‘Combined Power Generation Technology’
Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) have developed a new technology that can generate electricity from both tidal and wind sources.
October 17, 2023. By News Bureau
The innovation is an energy converter system that generates electricity in coastal areas to reduce electricity demand. The converter system can be deployed depending on the power requirements in the coastal areas.
A wind turbine mounted on a vehicle’s roof will employ the converter technology to generate wind energy as well as convert tidal energy into electrical energy. The energy output of the system is entirely renewable and sustainable.
The researchers are currently focused on scalability and affordability and are trying to build a cost-effective prototype using 3D-Printing and other technologies.
The current invention creates electricity using only one vertical axis wind turbine, a horizontal converter mechanism, and no hydraulic set generator based on pendulum support.
The current converter also has a variety of height adjustable guider support mechanisms to help regulate the height of the elliptical plate attached to the main shaft.
This innovation has great potential for electricity generation in coastal areas, and the researchers are working towards making it more affordable and scalable.
