CI & MS materials are used for making body and frame strong, which can resist 1.5 ton weight and resistance towards the accidents even at 120kmph speeds, the frame balances even if it is at 60 degrees side inclination, because the frame is equal to the weight of the engine makes the balancing of the dune buggy.
Four stroke engine with four speed, Driven by 416cc and 18.5 bhp, rear diesel engine with 2 seated capacity, this All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) dimensions are 5.10ft height, 4.3ft width and total weight of ATV is 179kgs, which gives mileage of 31.6kmpl when this ATV roars to life, it is just ready for any road condition. Put together by the Mechanical Engineering students of Vignana Bharathi Institute of Technology (VBIT),
Designed by a team of 4 students P Uday kumar raju, Arroju Rahul, P Threenadh, M Ravinder & fabricated in 20 days, just with 70,000 rupees, the vehicle is capable of safe operation over rough land terrain including obstructions such as rocks, sand jumps, steep inclines, mud and shallow water. The hallmark of this ATV is the ruggedness of its structure and the simplicity of its design ,
Students say, it has been driven and tested on rough terrain and found to be stable at 40 kmph which they describe as appreciable given the capacity of the engine. Students ended up working out entire nights at time to ensure its completion in time. “We are working hard to solve the engineering and managerial problems that we faced,” says Uday, a student of the team that put the ATV together.
The Project is executed by 20 students of 3 different branches, 13 students from Mechanical Engineering – Manufacturing of Structure and Blades, 5 students from Electrical Engineering – Generator, 2 students from Electronics Engineering – Speed Control and Circuit Design.
The prime objective of this project is to enhance the technical skills of the young engineers. The Wind turbine presently generates a power of 500 watts, taking wind as a source of energy and which at a later stage, on modification can also be utilized towards the power supply of the college as well.
A few concepts of physics such as strength, balance, production, storage and usage are used in the project. These stages were well planned and executed by the team, successfully for erecting the 25 feet tall wind turbine on the terrace of the 60 feet tall mechanical building in the college.
Standing 25 feet tall as a symbol of renewable energy source to the entire Aushapur area, it enhanced the appearance of the college and also the technical knowhow for the students.
Wind is a form of solar energy. Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth’s surface, and rotation of the earth. “Wind energy” or “wind power” describes the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power which in turn generates electricity.
Wind turbines, like aircraft propeller blades, turn in the moving air and power an electric generator that supplies an electric current. Simply stated, a wind turbine is the opposite of a fan.
Instead of using electricity to make wind, like a fan, wind turbines use wind to make electricity.
The wind turns the blades, which spin a shaft, that is connected to a generator and produces electricity.
The specifications of the wind mill are as follows:
The output being generated at output terminals is ~13V & 500 watts.
