Abstract


The regenerative braking system is an energyretrieval mechanism which stops a moving vehicle or objectsthrough the conversionof its motion or kinetic energyto electrical energy and stores it in batteries or capacitors. When conventional brakes are applied, kinetic energy is wasted into heat energy due to resisting force amidst the brakes and the wheels. Theresultant heat is released in the environment and accounts for an effective energy loss. The total energy wasted dependsupon the number of times, the intensity of force applied and the duration the brakes are applied.The aim of this project was to store the energy which is wasted during braking, and monitor it over a display. An Electric Motor is a device whichis responsible for this inter-conversion of energies.A Regenerative Braking System increases the efficiency of anelectric vehicle by saving the energy.
