10th Class Student Hamza Invented Parachute Powered turbine
10 class Hamza Ibrahim is young scientist of Pakistan Science Club Invented Parachute Powered turbine.
Renewable energy sources are the next generation power energy sources. In this new world the energy is being yielded through wind by rotating the blades of turbines whether, vertical axis or horizontal axis. These turbines have been proven environmental hazard, biodiversity hazard. Moreover, the most efficient wind turbines are recorded mare30% to 45%. The high wind speed bring huge devastation. Along all this, these wind turbines carry complicated mechanisms and high maintenance cost.
In contrast to conventional wind turbines, Hamza Ibrahin and his Mentor Anas devise a parachute powered turbine in Pakistan Science club Lab. A parachute tied with a rope mounded on a pole. The rope is rolled over a two way pulley power generator. The air drag pull the parachute up to a particular distance hence it makes the pulley power generator turn in one direction and transform wind energy into electrical energy. After travelling up to a particular distance, the counter mechanism turn the parachute upside down and make the rope to pull back by making the pulley powered generator turn in opposite direction. Hence once again it generates electricity. Once the parachute reach to its optimum point, the parachute opens again and the cycle repeats itself.
