Fabrication of Air Cooling System using Thermoelectric Device
August, 2017 -
Due to high detrimental effect of HCFC on ozone layer we want to build thermoelectric cooling device based on Peltier law. Then some amount of waste heat is generated. We aim to produce electricity using this waste heat as per Seebeck effect. So we just want to minimize the use of power.
Development of Human Powered Vehicle for ASME-HPVC 2018 - TEAM PRAKRITI
April, 2017 -
“ Team PRAKRITI will design and build an aerodynamically and mechanically efficient vehicle that uses pure human power to achieve a top speed of at least 50kmph.”
The main aim of this HPV team is to design a vehicle which is lightweight,
aerodynamically accurate, safe, and comfortable to ride. Design mission incorporates safety, aerodynamics and comfort as the primary design parameters followed by speed. The vehicle must satisfy all the rider requirements and must be able to adapt to the surroundings e.g. all weather, uneven terrain etc.
We performed research to determine appropriate HPV design. Performed necessary calculations to ensure subsequent design step are accurate and valid. Used hi tech engineering techniques to validate results.
Hydrail - the Future of Railway network
Published by (International Journal of Modern Trends in Engineering and Science (IJMTES))

Hydrail (hydrogen rail) is a zero emission free train which use on-board hydrogen to store and deliver their traction energy.
This paper presents a comparison of hydrogen, diesel and electricity as a fuel in trains from where we can analyze how each transportation sector benefits in using hydrogen as its main energy carrier. The results show that locomotive transportation has the best advantage of using hydrogen as a fuel. By converting the locomotives to operate on hydrogen fuel, this would reduce the pollution generated by diesel fuels significantly with the only emissions being steam and condensed water.
