Electrification Of Rural Areas Using Piezoelectric Effect
In this paper, the present scenario of rural electrification in India is taken into account. Basically, the
electrification in this country is facing a lot of problem and is a growing matter of concern for all. Taking in account, the
present source of energy it is difficult to make the electricity available to the people belonging to rural areas who don’t have
much source of income. To overcome this drawback we can utilize renewable sources of energy which are cost effective.
There is loss of fuel and energy when vehicles are in motion on a highway. We can generate voltage by the pressure of these
vehicles using piezoelectric effect. This voltage can be stored in battery and electrify a small rural belt.
