A fourth-grade citizen student from the Scientific Creativity Council has found a way to convert kinetic energy into electric using a bicycle.
The student, Ali Humaid Al-Loghani, told «Emirates Today», that his project aims to contribute to supporting dependence on clean energy, explaining that the project can be used anywhere, whether in homes, public parks, workplaces and others, and anyone can produce electrical energy through it.
He stated that the project consists of a bicycle, the frame of which is connected to a generator of electric energy, which is transmitted to two “AC” regulators, one of which converts energy from 220 volts to 12 volts DC, to charge the batteries of small electronic devices, including the mobile phone, while the second converts energy from 12 volts. to 220 for charging or powering the batteries of large appliances, including televisions.
Al-Loughani indicated that his project won second place in a competition organized by the Innovators Association, in which a large number of innovators within the country participated.
He added that he began implementing his innovations from an early age, as he produced a number of innovations, and participated in competitions for innovators inside and outside the country, and his ranking was in advanced positions among the contestants in each competition.
He continued, “I find great support from my mother in every project I think of to implement, as well as the encouragement I received from my father and uncle to continue innovation, which interests me greatly, because they are engineers, and they give me advice and guidance in many steps of implementing any project.”
