Regenerative Energy Gets a Boost

Team Quantum
Arif, Parul, Gaurav and Kuldeep

And finally team QUANTUM has WON the competition of "Innovation in Manufacturing Practices" at  IIT Kanpur and got a grand prize of Rs 50,000 !!!
A team of young enthusiasts, final year engineering students from a Jabalpur Engineering College have done it.
Even after being selected for jobs during campus interviews, the team chose not to pursue jobs. They chose to tread their own line, namely, Innovations in Engineering. The most natural choice of field being Regenerative Energy.
With little resource at their disposal Arif used the cylinder of his bike's engine to run a generator and light up his ambitions. No fuel, no pollution, no fatigue, just a little improvisation.
Team Quantum's work forms the nucleus of various applications in  Regenerative Energy, and it provides the interface between the actual generation of electric power and the working medium : Air.

A new bike is priced Rs 35000/-.
A scrapped bike at Rs 3000/-
Its engine at Rs 500/-
Its cylinder at Rs 200/-.
This uses a 150 cc scrap cylinder to produce 0.8 kva electric power.
