Compressed air into high voltage electricity
The Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) has developed an instrument to convert compressed air into high voltage electricity.
The instrument developed by a second year mechanical engineering student of Kanchipuram, Siddharth Machana, along with principal research scientist at the institute Omkar Jani, is expected to be highly cost-effective and more environment friendly than conventional batteries.
“This is just a prototype. We are working on how to produce high volume of electricity from it,” said Jani at a meet held to showcase the achievements of the institute. The institute has applied for a patent for this instrument. This is among the five innovations for which they have applied for a patent. Jani, however, clarified that this was not the first attempt in the world to convert compressed air to high voltage electricity. “But this is the first to use a unique combination of compressed air and spring to produce the energy with minimum loss,” he said.
