    Background[edit]

    Bicycle dynamos are nothing new, but charge-while-you-ride technology has improved by leaps and bounds in the last few years.These days you can charge just about any device that uses USB power using your own physical exertion, including smartphones, tablets and rechargeable lights.

    problem statement[edit]

    Design a charge device that can fast charge just about any device that uses USB power using your own physical exertion, including smartphones, tablets and rechargeable lights.

    deliverable&specifications[edit]

    charge smartphone fast.

    portable and reliable cellphone charging

    ensure enough power and steady voltage.

    goals[edit]

    designing a phone charge that uses power generated from the bicycle. A normal phone usually use 5V charge and a USB. So our goal is to able generate electricity from the bicycle that can give an out put of 5V by using a USB output. As a group project, we have pinpointed our design constraints, we divided the project as 3 parts: generator, DC-DC converter(to constant the variable input), battery. And we will focus on designing the DC-DC converter.

    data collection[edit]

    The average power generated by a person is about 150W at 120 Rpm. Highest power that an cyclist reached is 1100W at 320 rpm. while selecting parts a higher power rating is preferred.

    Important Using Devices[edit]

    generator
    we choose a 24V 600rpm 100w AC permanent magnet generator. The ratio of rotating speed and voltage is constant. However, it's an AC generator, we need to use an AC-DC converter. The work region for riding a bicycle is 0-300rpm, so the generator can output 0-12v voltage.
    AC-DC converter
    We use this AC-DC converter pcb board to get a fixed voltage DC current.And it's input work region is 5.5v-16.5v and the output is 15v.
    current regulator
    To charge the capacitor, we need constant current. We use a buck converter as a current rugulator.For this, it's output can be control.

    Input Voltage: DC 12V Input Current: 1.45-4.167A Output Voltage: 2.5-7.14V Output Current: 7A(fixed)


    capcitor
    This capacitor is super-capacitor, it has a large capacity, but it can't load a high voltage. We use a combination of several super-capacitor serious connections to get a high capacity and load the voltage we need.

    3 capacitors in series. Total C=500F Total Vdc=8.1V Effective energy storage 3.5w·hr Maximum energy storage 4.5w·hr

    current regulator
    we use a buck converter to output constant 5V,3A. It means we can charge 2 phones at same time.

    Generator[edit]

    capacitor[edit]

    We use an unstable volatge supply to simulate the bicycle generator output, and this is the plot of the input power,(W-t diagram)

    We test the voltage in the cap combinations, and this plot is the V-t diagram of the voltage in the caps
