Abstract:

Livestock have been used in agriculture for thousands of years supplying energy for crop production in terms of draught power and organic manure. But due to mechanization in agriculture, the role of animals in crop production became less relevant. But in a country like India where 78% of farmers have less than 2 ha of area for cultivation, the question whether the use of tractors and tillers are economical put forward the importance of draught animals in agriculture. It is assumed that one pair of draught animals develop approximately 750 watts of power. If the million animals can be used, say, for about 250 days of a year at the rate of 6 hrs per day, then the total energy available will be 45 million mw hr. it has been estimated that average use of animal power in a year is only 100 year days. In this research a modified machine design and developed for the generation of the electricity with the help of draught animal in rotary mode operation and The average speed, draft force and power requirement of a pair of bullocks were 2.5 km/h, 730 N and 0.18 kW to operate the animal driven electricity generator for electricity generation and battery charging.
