A Novel Based Wind/Solar Electric Vehicles for Green and Clean Environment

Adeel Saleem, Nain Liu, Hu Junjie, Atif Iqbal, Muhammad Aftab Hayyat
Abstract—As the world population is increasing day by day and there is an increase in the use of energy in the same order, so it is essential to keep our energy resources very high to meet the demand. It is the fact that due to the rapid depletion of fossil fuel resource worldwide, it became essential to search for alternative sources of energy. For transportation mode, the electric vehicles found the difficulty of charging the batteries after propelling few kilometers. This paper proposes a wind/solar based electric vehicle which can charge the batteries on mobility. It will increase its mileage as well as helping to keep the environment green and clean. The proposed model of the electric vehicle is driven on the same principles as used in electric vehicles. The top (roof/bonnet) of the vehicle is equipped with 420W flexible solar panel, the windscreen and four windows covered by a 410W flexible solar panel which could only be utilized while on parking. The surrounding of the area is equipped with 460W flexible solar panel; a 400W micro wind turbine is located at the front of the vehicle behind the condenser, the combination of small wind turbines adjusted between the two layers of vehicle external body and PV panels. MATLAB/SIMULINK model presented that by utilizing the combination of PV panel and micro wind turbine provide extra power to charge the 30.7 kWh Lithium (Li)-ion battery and is increasing the range up to several kilometers, while the model runs for one sunny day.

Index Terms—Electric vehicle, clean energy, green environment, wind/solar based vehicle.
