Free Plans To Build your own Bicycle Generator Pedal Power Station
Use these free videos and plans to make your own pedal power bicycle generator station. Good for powering up your television or charging a battery or powering CFL / LED lights . Great source of emergency survival power and an alternative green energy source. Specifications Voltage Output Graph In the most basic of terms, a bicycle generator creates a potential energy when you move the pedals on your bicycle. A "no load" condition is when you have nothing hooked up to your generator. The amount of power from your generator is measured in terms of "Watts". If you were to connect a load to your generator such as a Duracell lead acid rechargeable battery powerpack or a light bulb, then you would suddenly feel a resistance to your pedaling and you would begin to sweat. If you are a non technical person, then please skip this section below. Related:  DIY Clean EnergyDIY Build or HackSS DIY Energy

Bicycle Pedal Power Generator FAQ Frequently Asked Questions If you are interested in buying a bicycle generator already built, then click here Lets' say i want to power a 400w high pressure sodium grow lamp and to leave it on for 18 hours per day how long would I have to cycle for how would i even rig a 400w hps bulb to that and store the energy ??? The first step to find the answer to your question is to make some assumptions: 1- Assume you want to power your grow lamp from a 12 Volt deep cycle battery . 2- Assume you are going to use an AC Inverter to convert 12 Volt battery Voltage to the operating Voltage of your Grow lamp which is most likely 110V AC. Next consider how many Amps will be drawn from the 12 Volt battery when the grow lamp is running through the inverter. The problem with this setup is that it only will light the grow lamp if people are pedaling. So if a person had 5 100 Watt solar panels that he / she could connect to the combiner box, then that would provide an extra 40 Amps of charging current for around 6 hours a day.

Whizbang Cider: Whizbang Cider Photo Gallery My 46-page planbook, Anyone Can Build A Whizbang Apple Grinder And Cider Press tells you exactly how to build the grinder and press shown in the pictures below. If you don't yet have a copy of the book, these pictures will provide you with an excellent idea of just how simple and practical the Whizbang cidermaking system is. For those who have the book with it's many illustrations, these pictures serve to bring the line drawings to life. That is the Whizbang apple grinder, setting in my kitchen. The grinder is a souped-up food waste disposal (a.k.a., a garbage disposal) mounted in a convenient stand. That's ground-up apple mash flowing out the grinder drain pipe. A bushel of apples (42 pounds) renders a pail of mash, like you see here. Here we have washed apples on the kitchen table. My son is feeding apples into the grinder. Here's another view of the grinder and mash-filled buckets. Here's a view of the Whizbang cider press. Do you see the cider in the collection pan? Wow.

How to Build Your Own Uninterruptible Power Supply: 13 Steps Edit Article Edited by Evildave, Brandywine, Jonathan E., MBD123 and 15 others In the event of extended blackout, you may have critical systems (such as computer or medical equipment) that must remain running no matter what. This guide will yield one scalable uninterrupted power supply system. You may extend it with power generation, or solar/wind/etc. as you see fit. Most uninterrupted power supplies sold for computers 'switch' power, running a small inverter when power is interrupted, then switching back to 'normal' power when it's back on. Ad Steps 1Read all warnings before proceeding. 13Supplement alternatives where beneficial or necessary. Warnings Do not wear watches or jewelry when working on the batteries.Wear eye protection when working on batteries.Grounding the inverter is not optional, it is a must.

300w pedal generator High power Pedal generator (300 watts) 15/04/10 Click image for Hi res version This is my latest attempt at building a highly efficient powerful pedal generator. Pedalling a stationary bicycle can at times be a little tiresome therefore I wanted to make an as efficient as possible pedal generator so for every joule of energy I exert I then harvest the maximum amount of power out. My earlier pedal generator projects here At the heart of this project is the bicycle hub motor, the one I chose was a 24v 500 watt brushless unit, my thinking was the lower voltage version (36 and 48v versions are available) would have heavier gauge coil windings thus coil resistance being lower and efficiency better (0.3 ohms per phase in my case) of course the lower voltage hub motors would need to turn faster to generate a charging voltage into a 12v battery, this was not a problem as I would use gearing to achieve this. An excellent article on the various types of hub motors available here

How To Build A Cider Press - DIY Related Content Cider Press Plans Want fresh cider? Make your own cider press using these free plans. Click on the corresponding thumbnails in the Image Gallery (accessible on Page 1 of this article) for referenced figures and diagrams. Before the advent of the pop bottle and urban sprawl, just about every farm had a cider press. Nowadays, it's well nigh impossible to come by an old-fashioned barrel press. Now, I'm not a cooper (heaven forbid!) You Can Build a Cider Press My little cidermaker's not at all difficult to build. Use Hardwood for the Press You'll notice that in the "List of Materials" (Page 6) I've specified hardwood for the basket's slats. Bear in mind, as you build the basket, that the spacing between slats (on the inside of the hoop looking out) should be very close to 1/16" after everything has been assembled. The slats on my machine's basket are 5/8" thick (a thickness, I've found, that can be cut from most breadboards). The Support Frame The Trough and Drain OK. OK.

Ecoexperimentos: Calentador solar gratis con botellas PET Hace ocho años José Alano, un mécanico brasileño retirado, tuvo la inspiración de recoger botellas de plástico (PET) y cartones de leche usados para desarrollar un sistema de calentamiento de agua por energía solar simple, barato y que pudiera construir cualquier persona.The Ecologist le dedica un estupendo artículo contando su historia:…viendo que en su pequeño pueblo de Tubarão no existía ninguna infraestructura para reciclar los envases y sintiéndose incapaces de tirar todos esos envases a la basura, Alano y su mujer pronto se encontraron con una habitación llena de botellas y cartones de leche vacíos. [...] Haciendo uso de su ingenio y experiencia con captadores solares, él y su esposa construyeron una versión alternativa utilizando 100 botellas PET y 100 cartones de leche usados. Lo que más impresiona es oir cómo Alano se describe a sí mismo:“No me considero un inventor, sino un simple ciudadano que trata de encontrar soluciones a los problemas.”

Free-Energy Devices, zero-point energy, and water as HHO fuel How I built an electricity producing Solar Panel Several years ago I bought some remote property in Arizona. I am an astronomer and wanted a place to practice my hobby far away from the sky-wrecking light pollution found near cities of any real size. In my attempt to escape city slicker yuppies (you know the kind, the ones that like to blab loudly on their cell phone while they work on some business administration degree in a cyber cafe somewhere in Trendyland.) and their light pollution, I found a great piece of remote property. The problem is, it's so remote that there is no electric service available. That's not really a problem. I built a wind turbine to provide some power on the remote property. Here is a video of the solar panel set up and in use on my remote, off-grid property. Let me state up front that I probably won't be able to help you out much if you decide to build your own solar panel(s). So what is a solar panel anyway? After a while, I came to some conclusions: seller. A solar panel is really just a shallow box. Oops!

Solar Greenhouse Building Our BatchGeo world MAP shows the locations of green building and renewable energy projects featured on Solaripedia. ALMOST ANY STRUCTURE that is built to look like a solar greenhouse will work. That is to say, the solar greenhouse concept is so right that you can ignore (or not know) the fine points of solar design and still build a house with much less need for supplemental heat than a traditional greenhouse. ©1978 Organic Farming and Gardening Dave MacKinnon, Ph.D., ORGANIC GARDENING greenhouse designer, has put it all together after three years of experimenting and has created a design formula that gardeners in any climate can follow. The best measure of a solar green house is the plant-growing environment it creates. ORGANIC GARDENING researchers have built two different greenhouses that have worked well despite unusual winter weather. In December and January we harvested enough salad greens every day for three or four people. In spring and fall the harvests are bigger.

Project Build A Solar Panel: Step by step guide to building a solar panel with complete illustrations Introduction A solar cell's purpose is to generate electricity through the release of electrons from a material that is bombarded by electromagnetic radiation or photons. Most crystalline solar cells are sensitive to visible radiation from 400 - 700 nanometers, which correspond to 3.1 - 1.8 electron volts, of the visible region as shown by ACEPT W3 Group (1999) and also into the near infrared spectrum. As the wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation increases, the amount of electron volts decreases. This means that infrared radiation has less electron volts than the visible spectrum of light (because it has a larger wavelength than visible light) and ultraviolet and gamma radiation has more electron volts than both the visible spectrum of light and infrared radiation (because they have a smaller wavelength than both infrared and visible light). Significance of Solar Panels A solar cell, in itself, is of little value in our energy consumptive world.
