ABSTRACT

Abstract: Generally compressed air is produced using different types of air compressors, which consumes lot of electric energy and is noisy. In this paper, an innovative idea is put forth for production of compressed air using movement of vehicle suspension which normal is wasted. The conversion of the force energy into the compressed air is carried out by the mechanism which consists of the vehicle suspension system, hydraulic cylinder, Non-return valve, air compressor and air receiver. We are collecting air in the cylinder and store this energy into the tank by simply driving the vehicle. This method is non-conventional as no fuel input is required and is least polluting.
