At present time, one of the major concerns in the world is Energy Crises. Many other issues are also growing due to this devastating situation of Power and Fuel Shortage and their demand is increasing day by day. The shortage of petrol in Pakistan in December of last year and in January of 2015 is a unique example of today’s fuel and energy crisis. Our project presents the concept of Wireless Power Transmission through inductive coupling and Solar Power System in Transportation without using Fuel. Wireless Power Transmission through inductive coupling reciprocated with Solar Power offers the far-term potential to solve major energy shortage issues while travelling.
This project entitled “INDUCTION AND SOLAR SYSTEM ELECTRIC VEHICLE” is based on two portions the first one is induction system and second is solar system. The induction part of this project works on the laws of electromagnetic induction. Actually step down transformer is connected with main power supply of 220V which steps down the voltage at 24V then this is power of 24V is connected with D.C power supply which converts 24V of A.C into 12V of D.C this supply is now connected with transmitter which converts again D.C 12V into A.C and then transmitter inductive copper cable is buried underground which transmit the electrical power via electromagnetic induction.
Then receiver side also called pickup equipment is fitted underneath the vehicle which receives through non-contact (wireless) magnetic induction which is used to power the vehicle directly or charge the batteries. In this project the receiver receives A.C power of 33V at 1 inch distance through copper coils, as the distance increases the strength of voltage decreases. Receiver receives the A.C power then converts back into D.C voltage of 9V now motor of vehicle is connected with 12V of D.C to run the vehicle.
The solar part of this project works on sun light directly strike on solar panel which is fitted above the vehicle. The solar panel used in project generates 18V which is used to power the vehicle or charge the batteries.
The switching mechanism is also used in vehicle to shift the power from induction to solar and vice versa automatically. Through this project we can build a real electric car which operates on induction and solar power and the vehicle runs without any fuel or gas.
We are the first among undergraduates of M.U.E.T as well as Pakistan who have designed such a system in which electrical power is transmitted wirelessly and that concept is used in electric vehicle with the addition of solar power. We measured all the values of voltage, current and frequency at each step in our project every data is mentioned in great detail in this project report.
