    Abstract: This study explores the practicability of a large-scale power generation from road speed bumps by harvesting moving vehicle energy using mechanical speed bump (MSB). It includes conceptual design of a large-scale speed bump power generation system (SBPGS), analysis of the power generating capacity, and techno-economic analysis of the system. The sy... Show More

    Abstract: This study aims to adapt and evaluate an updraft biomass gasifier stove using sawdust biomass. It was a cylindrical gasifier having a diameter of 32.5cm*40cm height and a rectangular box-like base that served as a set and had a primary air hole of 20cm*6cm sliding type door. Fuels made from renewable biomass might easily take the place of fossil fu... Show More
