In this post we write to show about making of the innovative hydraulic brakes working model to generate electricity – inspire award winning project
Creating a model of hydraulic brakes using syringes that generates electricity when the brakes are applied, using a DC motor and shaft, is an innovative way to understand both hydraulic systems and energy conversion. Here’s how you can build this model:
Materials You’ll Need:
- Syringes (to represent the hydraulic brake cylinders)
- Plastic tubing (for hydraulic lines)
- Small DC motor
- Small shaft or rod
- LED or small light bulb (to represent generated electricity)
- Craft knife or scissors
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Craft supplies for decoration (markers, stickers, etc.)
Video guide to make step by step innovative hydraulic brakes working model to generate electricity
- Prepare the Base:
- Use a sturdy surface or base for building the model.
- Create Hydraulic Brake System:
- Attach syringes vertically to the base using hot glue. These will act as hydraulic brake cylinders.
- Connect the syringes with plastic tubing to create a closed hydraulic system.
- DC Motor and Shaft:
- Attach the small DC motor to the base. This will represent the mechanism that generates electricity.
- Attach a small shaft or rod to the DC motor’s output shaft.
- Connect Hydraulic System to Brakes:
- Attach one end of the plastic tubing from the hydraulic brake cylinders to the shaft/rod.
- Install Electricity Generator:
- Attach the LED or small light bulb to the DC motor’s terminals.
- As the shaft turns, it generates electricity that lights up the LED.
- Operate the Model:
- Gently push the plunger of one of the syringes to simulate applying the brakes.
- The hydraulic pressure will transfer to the other syringe and cause the shaft to turn the DC motor, generating electricity to light up the LED.
- Decorate the model with craft supplies to make it visually appealing.
This model demonstrates how hydraulic pressure can be harnessed to generate electricity through the operation of brakes. It’s a hands-on way to learn about energy conversion and the interconnectedness of mechanical systems.
