Design and Implementation of the Reciprocating Pedal-Powered Electricity Generating Device
This project is intended to design one kind of automatically reciprocating pedal-powered electricity generator (ARPPEG) in conjunction with the management and control over harvesting the kinetic energy, electricity generation, the electricity storage and the output of electricity. According to the operation testing results, this system has been proved to effective in power generation. In view of the simple structure and low-costs of this system without territory and time limits, the application of ARPPEG designed by us could open a new path to saving the energy and helping build a new energy society.
