Abstract: Mobile phone is our means to remain connected. While the phones have progressively got more powerful processors and large touch screen interfaces, their power requirement has increased correspondingly. Unfortunately, battery technology has not been growing at a comparable pace. Hence, there is a need to frequently charge the batteries. While travelling, people face a common problem of charging electronic appliances. Our solution to this problem is Mechanical Hand Crank Mobile Charger. Mechanical hand crank mobile charger is a device that utilizes mechanical energy, converts it into electrical energy and charges the mobile. It doesn’t require any electrical source. Also by going for this alternative source of energy we can reduce the human footprint on Earth as we are using human effort instead of conventional electricity. We have used a compound gear train and 6 intermediate gears for transformation of mechanical energy from hand crank to generator. Pro-engineer software for designing the gear train, NI Multisim software for simulation of the circuit and Reverse engineering technique to achieve this solution for the problem.
Keywords: Compound gear train, NI Multisim, Reverse engineering, Simulation.
