Engineering college students of the school i.e. Bharath Y. Kashyap, Guruprasad Ok, RV Sheshank, Vishnu Appaiah KB, Punith R, PratheeK P, Chidananda A Kashyap and Dadabasha Saudagar below the steerage of their school from the mechanical engineering division Sudev LJ, Rakshith Gowda DS, and G B Krishnappa carried out this analysis. They took two months for the identification of the IC engine pushed automotive that are older than 15 years and covert it into electrical drive automotive. They purchased a 15 12 months outdated automotive for Rs. 41,500 and modified into an eco-friendly electrical automotive with an extra value of Rs.96, 658 together with electrical motor, batteries, controller, equipment, and labor value. They used Lead Acid (SLA) battery. The mileage after 6.6 hours charging is 40 kilometers. Price saving for 40 kilometers is Rs.106. For petrol it requires the gas of Rs.140 whereas gas bills of the modified automotive is Rs. 34.
In accordance with Rakshith Gowda, Assistant Professor, Division of Mechanical Engineering, the unit value of the electrical energy is Rs 7.5 and the entire items consumed in absolutely charging of the LEAD acid battery with 48V 100Ah capability is 5.2. Therefore the associated fee concerned in travelling per kilometer is Rs 0.85 after modification of the petrol engine automotive into an electrical automotive.
“We are able to enhance the battery efficiency. As a substitute of scraping the outdated car, we will simply convert them. The RTO guidelines needs to be amended for this goal,” he mentioned.
In accordance with faculty principal B Sadashive Gowda, the analysis on the battery and use of photo voltaic vitality to recharge the battery will proceed. “We additionally wish to create consciousness among the many public on the significance of shifting to the renewable vitality sources,” he mentioned.
