Pedal Powered Workshop, Magnificent Revolution
The Pedal Powered Workshop is run by Magnificent Revolution a not-for-profit London based cross-disciplinary organisation working in education, ecology, engineering, design, art, music and film.
For those wanting an introduction to renewables and are mad about bikes, this course is a great way to learn about creating energy from Bicycles, through the use of pedal power generators. Participants will discover how to use their own bike as part of a small power station, capable of powering computers, stereos, TVs and other small household appliances. Participants will find out about:
- Basic system design
- Load assessment
- Power generation
- Electricity storage using batteries
- Conversion of DC to AC electricity by inverters
- Control and monitoring of power
The workshop will take place on:
