Daisy Chained Wind Turbines Along Railway Lines

Completed : October 2018

This project was made as a part of the course Minor Project 1 during my undergraduate studies at SRMIST in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
The Project aims to generate electricity using the dynamic wind pressure generated by passing trains near railway tracks. The energy is captured by using several small scale vertical axis wind turbines(VAWTs) in series, which feed the energy generated into a Lithium- Ion Battery after energy conditioning.

The video above shows me and my friend testing the first unit in front of a local railway station called Potheri, in southern Chennai, India.
