Introduction to Regenerative Braking System

Introduction to Regenerative Braking System


When we press brake pedal of our vehicle to stop or reduce the speed of it at that time kinetic energy available at wheel is converted into heat and that heat is dissipated into atmosphere.So near about 20-25% of energy is lost at brake.We are trying to recover that energy by using regenerative braking system
.
In regenerative braking system there are mainly three extra components are added in vehicle as motor, planetary gear box ,battery. Planetary gearbox is attached at rear axle of vehicle.sun gear is mounted on main axle which rotates continuously which also rotates planetary gears and arm,at the same time ring gear remains constant.when we press brake pedal at that time brake shoe restrict the motion of arm which restrict the motion of planet gears and gives rotation to ring gear.ring gear is connected to motor which is also act as generator.

At the time of starting vehicle uses power from both I C engine as well as battery as it required more power but when it moves on plane road at that time vehicle doesn't required that much amount of power so power from battery is cut off ;when we press brake pedal at that time by using clutch we disconnect engine power and recapturing kinetic energy from wheels and storing it into battery.
