I had to show my kid your video immediately. Your simple demonstration brought that concept over clearly. Thank you for that. I also like the comment lower down of using a bike on a trainer as the power source. Maybe you can make a project out of something like that. Imagine people sitting Zwift pedaling away, and generating enough power to charge a phone or other stuff.

@innocentidiot9521 2 жыл бұрын
I did it a while ago, although not with hand crank generator but with adjustable powersupply. I was using it for something else(22v) and then forgot to set it back to 5v. Luckily only charging board fried and nothing else. It works now fine after swapping cheap board with new one. Also my phone isn't that picky about voltages that I charge it with. It charges with voltages of 4.2-10v. Probably because it support fast charging (15w, 8v). It starts complaining if I charge it with less than 2w.

That is a fun project to do. I really enjoyed how you explained the improvements on the gear design. Making arrowhead gears easy is one of the great advantages of printing them. My wife and I tinkered with a similar design once and we used the DC motor of a truck windshield wiper as a generator, making the electrical setup a bit easier. Where these simple designs all fall down sadly is that while a human can easily go way beyond the power output of what a USB charger can take, spinning these devices for hours on end is not fun. So the endgame of these is adding a more powerful intermediary battery storage and then control the outgoing voltage and that is where we noped out of that project.

For directly charging most phones (including iPhones) you just have to short the data pins together. Many USB power supplies use this way to tell a connected device that up to 1 Amp can be delivered. Also, you should use one of those step-down converter board instead of a linear voltage regulator as the latter can only supply about 200mA at best without overheating if you don't attatch a heatsink. And they also require an input voltage that is at least 2V more than the output voltage, which usually isn't the case for the (by the way much more efficient) step-down boards.
@brianh.000 7 ай бұрын
"Step-down converter board". Yes! This device is called a "buck converter", and is dramatically more efficient than a voltage regulator--especially for higher current applications. 👍 He could design one himself for this specific use, but fortunately general purpose buck converter boards can be had for a ... buck and some change (pun intended).
@TheLordNemesis 3 жыл бұрын
I'd scrap the belt, it looks cool, but it takes energy to bend the belt and overcome the additional friction. Also the linear voltage regulator wastes excess voltage as heat. You could use a DC-DC converter like the LM2596 instead (ready to use boards available), which can convert almost all of the input power to 5V. Many smartphones accept chargers with the data lines shorted together, you could try if that works.

If you want to make this more practical, have it charge a set of supercapacitors. That can work as a pool to hold the energy you're creating while the phone charges off of it. The other thing I would change is to move from a hand crank that you constantly have to move to some kind of foot pedal that you can just press down release and press down because you can repeat that action without thought all day while sitting down doing something else... Similar to how sewing machines used to work before electric motors.

The classic DC motor has a commuter, adding extra friction. It would work for the application for a simple generator like this. The fancier DC motors are actually AC motors, but with a motor controller that switches poles. You can drive them on a DC current, cause the motor controller itself the voltage when a new pole is reached. The more poles, the smoother the ride. To have it working as a generator however, that motor controller has to be even fancier to a 4 quadrant controller, as it also provide braking force (e.g. the current being generated) while still moving forward in the normal direction.

There's nothing free in eotating handle, you're spending calories through inefficient muscles, you'd better off literally burning fat than extracting energy from your muscles. These types of generators are good only if you want excercise and fill your energy storage, like install one under your desk, connect to battery or somwthing and spin it for the leg excercise, as a bonus you'll shove some energy into battery for later use. It's very fun, but as long as you're using muscles, forget about efficiency, if you really need something to generate energy and store it, get combustion engine that works off burning wood and chop a tree or something.

I have some ideas for the electrical side of this contraption. As far as I can tell you use a line regulator like an LM338 right? This IC is a good start but it might not be the most efficient way. Let's assume your generator "creates" 10 volts and 200 milliamps. What a line regulator does is basically "cut off" everything above the chosen voltage (5 volts in this case) and turns it into heat (thus wasting the energy). So the output would be 5 volts 200 milliamps I would use a Step-down buck converter like an LM61495 on the DC side (or a transformer on the AC side). With this approach, you can use more of the energy because it would convert the input voltage to 5 volts and up to 400 milliamps (some losses will occur). If the voltage is higher on the input side the current would also increase. The circuit is more complex, however. Incorporating this could make your device even better!

The problem with that is it actually wouldn't do anything, simply because a treadmill is a belt on a motor, so it's having to output energy in order for the belt to spin, if you ever try to run on a treadmill when it's off it doesn't do anything, acts the same as the floor.

@@jaisere Well, most treadmills are like that, but my gym has some special curved ones that you do move by running on them, and I think they do produce electricity, though I'm not sure.

Not sure if this is a silly question but what is stopping you putting a generator on each of the gears or for cost effectiveness only on the last few gears? The extra inertia to overcome would still provide a decent return on power and wouldnt be too bad if was just on last couple of gears?

a linear 5V regulator will require about 7V on the input to operate meaning you have to crank the generator even harder. for improved efficiency consider using an LDO regulator or getting fancy and use a buck/boost regulator that can boost lower voltages up and buck higher voltages down

I wonder if you could make something like the GravityLight so that you don't have to manually turn the crank.

Wow you made me understand gears and a Generator in less than 10 minutes pure Genius you need to be instructor professor I've been looking for someone to simplify these two subjects now I need to find a place that could you do a 1:20 rpm one revolution to 20 rev I just learned speed increasors gears are called overdrives or mutlitpliers trying to find specific gears with large diameter like 72 tooth with 3/4 inch bores with set screws and 40 tooth with a 11 tooth side or change gear built in or insert is crazy I am so new to all this but fascinated.

I love this stuff. It takes simple concepts and produces something that mildly ... if best... interfaces with modern technology. We have evidence of the Antikythera machine, showing that the ancients DID have knowledge of gears and gear boxes. It wasn't widespread, but likely the best scholars and highest governments knew of it. It just amazes me, I watched a survivalist channel, where a guy was able to make iron from mud out of a riverbed. If you were from like 100 BCE and followed some old man hermit genius into the forest for a few days. He might be able to draw out iron and copper from the Earth. Form them into gears, making a gear box and a generator to spin. Then he could make a battery out of acid formed from rain water mixed with the sulfur in volcano domes. He could charge the battery and possibly a capacitor to shoot a bolt of lightning and strike a man dead from a distance. You would run and tell the nearest king that there is a witch in the forests doing demon magic.

As far as I understand, the effect of herringbone or helical gears running smoother than spur gears is based on that there is always at least one point where the teeth are engaged, at any angle. This would require that each tooth's end at one face of the wheel overlaps the next tooth's end on the opposite face.

I've designed one that can be mounted to a wall or hung on the ceiling where weight can turn the gears and a reset mechanism that pulls that eight back up once it reaches the ground. It also feeds the output to a battery that powers the resetter...

omg i came up with a very similar design creating a homemade generator it is crazy. i used hand wound coils though and made much less power but the construction and concept is nearly identical.
