Cam Follower Mechanism Energy Efficiency

You can see cam follower mechanism for clean energy cheaper than coal. My cam follower mechanism is different than today’s cam follower. In general cam follower system,
cam shaft is rotated and follower move up and down according to cam profile. In my cam follower system,
1. Follower is offset.
2. Force is applied from follower to cam and by using this force cam is rotated.
3. We can decide how much follower come down for helping cam to rotate particular circumference length.
4. Follower down 6 cm with 100 kg and rotate cam of 27 cm at 70 kg.
5. Input energy we use to move follower is =0.06*100 =6 N-Meter
6 Out put energy we get on cam = 0.27*70 = 18.9 N-Meter
I have explained theory behind my cam follower system for clean energy cheaper than coal in below video.

Clean Energy Cheaper Than Coal- Cam Follower Theory Explained.
You can go through full post to get exact idea.

 Renewable Energy Linear Motion Mechanism:


I apply force using one slider to another slider. Best part is one slider move little bit and help second slider to slide 6 times length at 70 % force.

Energy Used to move first slider=force*distance

=100N*0.05m

=5Nm

Energy Get on Other Slider= Force*Distance

=Force applied by first slider*cos(45`)*distance

=100*0.7*0.25

=17.5

We get 3 times energy on second slider than we use to move first slider.


You can see prototype of my cam follower system. My cam follower is different than general cam follower. In general cam follower, camshaft is rotated and follower move up and down according to cam profile. In my cam follower mechanism,
1. Follower is offset. Follower is not inline with the center of cam. So when you apply force throuth follower, it help cam to rotate.
2. Force is applied from follower to cam and by using this force cam is rotated.
3. We can decide follower displacement and circumference of cam. I mean follower move 6cm and help cam to rotate circumference of 27cm at 70% force.

4. Energy=force *distance

In this system energy is used to move follower(input energy) and we get energy on cam(output energy).

Energy used to move follower=

force * distance

=100*0.06 (we consider force 100 N and distance 6cm (0.06 mtr))

=6 N-mtr

Energy got by rotation of cam=Force *distance

=70*0.27 (we get 70% of total force in tangential direction so it is 70 and distance is 27 cm so it is 0.27meter)

=18.9 N-mtr

You can get almost 3 times energy on cam than you lose to move follower.

I have removed cylinder. I use rubber ring on follower bearing which is in contact with cam. So noise and friction is reduced.

 

Cam Follower Position

You can see four position of my prototype drawing in above image.

Cam Follower Drawing

You can see actual drawing of my cam follower mechanism.

Cam Prototype Position

 

 

 

 

In the above image I have shown four position of prototype.


In this video I have shown drawing of my cam follower prototype for energy. My cam follower system is different than normal cam follower mechanism. In normal cam follower mechanism, cam is rotated and according to cam profile follower move up and down.
In my cam follower mechanism,
1. Force is applied from follower to cam. By using this force cam is rotated.(Main difference)
2. Follower is offset. So when you apply force from follower to cam, this force help cam to rotate.
3. We can decide how much follower move down.
For example we can move it down 3cm or 4 cm or 5 cm.
4. We can decide for particular length of follower move down, how much circumference length it will help to rotate cam. I mean for 3 cm down of follower can help cam to rotate circumference length of 15 cm or 20 cm or 25 cm.
5. In a very simple language, Follower move little bit and help to rotate cam at 5 times more length at little less force(70%)
6. It creates Energy.(Difficult to believe but true)
You can find real prototype at below video

You can see one cam and two follower. Force is applied by follower on cam. Follower come down 6 cm and help cam to rotate 27 cm peripheral length at little less force(70% of force applied on follower.)

Question is what is the benefit of this system?

We get more energy on cam than we use to move follower.

We can decide how much follower move  for particular peripheral length of cam.

I mean follower move  only 6cm for helping cam to rotate 27cm peripheral length.

Force applied by follower will divide in two parts. One is tangential and second is towards the center of cam. Tangential part will help cam to rotate.

If we consider pressure angle 45`, you will get 70% of total force applied in tangential direction of cam.

So total energy loss by follower= force * distance

=100*0.06 (we consider force 100 N and distance 6cm (0.06 mtr))

=6 N-mtr

Energy got by rotation of cam=Force *distance

=70*0.27 (we get 70% of total force in tangential direction so it is 70 and distance is 27 cm so it is 0.27meter)

=18.9 N-mtr

You can get almost 3 times energy on cam than you lose to move follower.

If you use correctly, your production cost will be cut dramatically.

You can see practical model of cam follower mechanism for clean energy. Follower move little bit and help cam to rotate 6 times more peripheral length. Cam can rotate 360 degree using two followers.

 

Model is about using cam for energy generation. You can see green arrow. That is force applied. Force is applied on cam using follower. Follower move up little bit and help to rotate cam at much more peripheral length.

You can see two video attached. You will get the idea.

 

When you apply force on follower, it will help cam to rotate. Follower move up little bit and help cam to rotate lot more peripheral length. We use the energy to move follower. And we get the energy by rotation of cam.

 

You can see green arrow in the video, that is force applied.

 

Question is what is the benefit of this system?

 

We get more energy on cam than we use to move follower.

 

We can decide how much follower move up for particular peripheral length of cam.

 

I mean follower move up only 1cm for helping cam to rotate 10cm peripheral length.

 

Force applied by follower will divide in two parts. One is tangential and second is towards the center of cam. Tangential part will help cam to rotate.

 

If we consider pressure angle 45`, you will get 70% of total force applied in tangential direction of cam.

 

So total energy loss by follower= force * distance

 

=100*0.01 (we consider force 100 N and distance 1cm (0.01 mtr))

 

=1N-mtr

 

Energy got by rotation of cam=Force *distance

 

=70*0.10 (we get 70% of total force in tangential direction so it is 70 and distance is 10 cm so it is 0.1meter)

 

=7N-mtr

 

If you use correctly, your production cost will be cut dramatically.
