Why rely on a waterfall for power generation? Instead use the forceful tap water or the shower in our washrooms, Tap Water is a suggestion for the growing power demand. If every house could use a cheap mini generator for every tap, can't that for people light up the bathrooms when the tap is opened?
The idea could be extended to the overhead tanks too. The energy is trapped from the tap water, where the work of m of the turbine could be done by a mini fan, which is connected to a mini-sized generator to generate Electricity. The USP or the thing that makes this idea unique is that to reduce the Electric bill. It could be possible with a moderate investment. If batch processing could be achieved, the manufacturing cost would come down too. However, the challenges that come on the way are many.
They include varying force of water, Intermittency in the usage, the very less power that one could trap from every water tap. Then why not all the taps, but the problem of integrating a number of generators to supply and store energy in a single battery or integrating them to the grid voltage and frequency becomes a major issue that has to be handled.
Thus we need to develop a circuit for CHARGE A SINGLE BATTERY FROM MULTIPLE ENERGY SOURCES and develop a successful design to trap energy from the taps and integrate them. This idea will not only be useful for the tap but in most cases of renewable energy tapping as in a cycle dynamo in a gym or electricity from rain, where the main problem is the integration of micro energy sources. This paper throws light on one of the most important practical aspect of micro-generation of green energy and its integration to the grid whose idea can be extended to other green energy sources also.
