Torsion spring regenerative braking in automobile a conceptual idea
Kalayarasan M, Ishaque Ansari Raja S and Bhavya Gupta
Bringing in the concept of regenerative braking in the field of automobile is the most important part due to the fuel crisis in the current world scenario. But it still requires various improvements in order to fruitfully use it. This project has been done to improve the present level of this regenerative braking. The use of electrical regenerative braking has been limited by the capacity of battery and the strength of braking in case of an emergency braking. Similarly, other types of regenerative brakes like pneumatic brakes, flywheel brakes have their own limitation. A new conceptual idea for the regenerative braking is displayed in this paper. The idea of storing energy in a spring in the form of potential energy and recovering it when required is used. This spring force (during brakes) can be adjusted according to the force applied by the driver on the brake pedal by using a clutch assembly and these two parts (torsion spring & clutch) can be integrated into a single piece and attached to each wheel of the automobile.
