Abstract:-The locomotive in our country mainly runs on electrical energy or by conventional resources such as petrol, diesel, coal etc. So with the help of solar energy we can run the locomotive or any vehicle.
Composition of two different drives based locomotive that is solar power and conventional drive system is possible. Here the solar energy is converted in to the electrical energy by using solar panels and then used for the needs. Revolutionary changes have taken place in the life of the mankind since human beings acquired the capability of walking upright.
In solar power locomotive solar panels are fitted on the roof of locomotive. The battery gets charged by solar energy and power is transmitted to the drive mechanism. Now we can measure the speed and efficiency of locomotive.Here we are going to use hydrogen peroxide as energy to run the train when solar energy isn’t available.
A non-conventional solar train which works with the help of solar energy efficiently and saving electrical energy and making maximum use of solar energy.
The trains in India are mainly driven by conventional power sources. So to save conventional sources we can use non-conventional sources such as solar energy for trains.
The solar energy is absorbed by solar panels fitted on the roof of the train. The energy gets stored in the battery available in the system.
When solar energy is not available we are going to run the train with the help of Hydrogen Peroxide.
