Abstract:

Draught animals are major source of motive power for majority of farmers. In India bullocks, buffaloes, camels, horses, mules and donkeys are common draught animals. These animals perform different field operations and are also used for rural transportation. In Indian agriculture, bullock farming operations are being carried out by small and marginal farmers and bullock power play an important role in many works. The availability of electric power in rural areas is a serious problem. The one way of utilizing bullock power could be for electricity generation to meet out the demand of the house hold purpose in villages. With this aim, the electricity generation unit was installed in the bullock cart and generated electricity was stored in battery. Alternator is used to produce current and that can be used for charging of battery.
