As world is switching towards a more reliable source of energy, there’s an urge for a more efficient use of energy so that lesser energy is lost. Regenerative braking system can play a huge role in doing so, as the world depends mainly on vehicles to travel thus braking system is a major need. Therefore, a system that can efficiently work will help decrease the fuel consumption and increase energy efficiency. Using its mechanism RBS recovers the energy that is lost to surrounding in the form of heat due to friction between brakes and tires. The recovered energy is turned from kinetic to electric using a generator/motor and then stored in a battery. This project aims to design a mechanism for RBS that helps us fulfill the United Nations SDGs (Sustainability Development Goals). The targeted SDGs through this project are affordable clean energy, Responsible consumption and production, Climate action and industry innovation. Another motive behind making this project is to design a system that decrease the fuel consumption of a vehicle so that the carbon emission can be decreased.
