Amity University has always been at the forefront of Science and Technology. The researchers and scientists at Amity work diligently to bring about a revolution in the area of R&D in the country.
Following the intensive research culture at Amity, a five member team from Amity Institute of Solar and Alternate Energy and Amity School of Engineering and Technology, under the able guidance and mentorship of Dr. V K Jain- Director, Amity Institute of Advanced Research and Studies (Materials & Devices) and Amity Institute of Renewable and Alternative Energy participated in “Techo Green Tech Contest” from August 25- September 2, 2012 held at Taiwan.
The team comprised of four students- Paritosh Saini- Amity Institute of Solar & Alternative Energy, Kshitij Chopra- Amity School of Engineering & Technology, Ankit Tyagi- Amity School of Engineering & Technology and Gurbinder Singh Gill- Amity School of Engineering & Technology and was headed by Dr. Abhishek Verma- Professor, Amity Institute of Renewable and Alternative Energy.
Over 26 teams from 4 countries including Taiwan, China, Russia and India participated in the International competition.
The team from Amity University presented a Scientific Model titled “ GENERATION OF CLEAN ENERGY USING FERRO FLUIDS( Nano materials)” during the prestigious Contest on August 28 and bagged “ Best Originality Award” for the novelty and ingenuity of their project.
The objective behind the model was to generate the cleanest electrical energy with the use of rare-earth magnets, ferro-magnetic fluids. The proposed energy generation system uses the power of magnetic fields generated from moving rare-earth magnets to generate electrical power. This ferro-magnetic power generator is not only clean, but it will also allow generate money-free electricity.
The Model, when developed, can be used for multiple useful applications viz. lighting, charging of cell phone or similar other devices/ instruments in remote areas/defense purpose where no other source of electricity is available.
