A lot of us wish it were possible to tackle the problem of diminishing reserves of non-replenishable fuels like- coal, petrol, and diesel. Nagendra Singh, a resident of Sanpada, spent 10 years to invent one such machine that is powered by battery and generates electricity.
The inventor asserts that his brainchild is the solution to the current fuel crisis as it does not need any fuel.
Called OzzoG, his electricity generator captures and uses gravitational force. Its main feature is the fact that it multiplies electrical power by 10 times using this mechanism. His main inspiration was the Purvat system used in villages to draw water from wells. “The oxen stands in a declined slope and a bucket tied to it would draw water from a well that is situated in an elevated spot.
Since the ox moves down the slope it ‘assists gravity’, and is able to do the work faster and efficiently. This is the mechanism that primarily guided my invention,” said Singh.
OzzoG has a gravitational harnesser that multiplies power by assisting gravity akin to riding down a slope. Explaining the working of his machine, Singh said, “The machine comes in varying configurations. For instance, when the machine is running, it produces 2.5kVA or 2500 watts of electricity. While the machine’s DC motor uses up 500watts of it, the remaining 2000watts goes back to the battery of the machine. It is a recyclable process because of which the battery never needs to be charged. The stored electricity in the battery can be used to run any appliance.” He has already applied for a patent and is waiting for the completion of the procedure.
Singh also asserts that since an average household requires only 300watts of electricity, the generator of 2.5kVA configuration is sufficient to satisfy electricity needs for three households. It comes in higher configurations also i.e the generator will be made available in 5 kVA, 10 kVA , 20 kVA and 25 kVA capacities. “This generator can be easily used in automobiles and we will have electric cars that will be feasible because the battery in my machine does not get discharged,” states Singh confidently. He added that it also produces negligible sound and is odourless and smokeless.
Singh who was last associated with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) as senior manager in product quality. He has been mainly proficient in Research and Development positions in his previous jobs. After years of research and reworking of basic prototypes, Singh developed the current model in April this year and intends to commercialise it. “I have got a few offers from India as well as abroad requiring generators of much higher capacity. I do not have manufacturing facility at present, but after I start production in large scale, the price and manufacturing time will be much less,” he said.
He used to carry out his research at home, later he moved to having his lab in Panvel 2 years ago.
“My dreams have come true, and when my invention is being used by power plants, urban households and villages, in India and abroad, it will be an achievement,” said Singh.
