Engineering college students of the school i.e. Bharath Y. Kashyap, Guruprasad Okay, RV Sheshank, Vishnu Appaiah KB, Punith R, PratheeK P, Chidananda A Kashyap and Dadabasha Saudagar underneath the steering 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 They purchased a 15 12 months outdated automotive for Rs. 41,500 and modified into an eco-friendly electrical automotive with a further value of Rs.96, 658 together with electrical motor, batteries,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. Value 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 whole models consumed in absolutely charging of the LEAD acid battery with 48V 100Ah capability is 5.2. Therefore the price concerned in travelling per kilometer is Rs 0.85 after modification of the petrol engine automotive into an electrical automotive.
“We will enhance the battery efficiency. As an alternative of scraping the outdated car, we are able to simply convert them. The RTO guidelines needs to be amended for this goal,” he stated.
In accordance with school principal B Sadashive Gowda, the analysis on the battery and use of photo voltaic power to recharge the battery will proceed. “We additionally need to create consciousness among the many public on the significance of shifting to the renewable power sources,” he stated.
