Kinetic Energy Recovery System Bicycle
Pavan kumar L N , Dileepraj H M, Dikshith M E
Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) is a system for recovering the moving vehicle’s kinetic energy under braking and also to convert the usual loss in kinetic energy into gain in kinetic energy. When riding a bicycle, a great amount of kinetic energy is lost while braking, making start up fairly strenuous. In this context the mechanical kinetic energy recovery system is used by means of a flywheel to store the energy which is normally lost during braking, and reuse it to help propel the rider when starting. The rider can charge the flywheel when slowing or descending a hill and boost the bike when accelerating.
