Background of the Invention

The increased use of gasoline for powering automobiles has raised concern for environmental issues such as pollution, global warming, depletion of ozone layer, and so on. Moreover, running the gasoline-powered vehicles causes exhaustion of natural resources. As a possible solution to these problems, some companies have introduced electric-powered and hybrid vehicles. However, these vehicles also have some limitations or drawbacks due to limited power storage capacity of the batteries.
According to some published reports, several automobile companies are working on developing vehicles that will be powered by batteries or hybrid engines and will run 40-100 miles on a single initial charge. And when the batteries completely run out of the charge, the gasoline engine will kick in to run the car and charge the batteries at the same time. However, this will again require gasoline for running the vehicle. As mentioned earlier, the electric powered vehicles can also be used as an alternative to gasoline powered vehicles, but these vehicles also have certain limitations. One of the limitations of these vehicles is that the batteries used in them can last for a limited time; after that, the batteries need to be recharged. This gives rise to the need of a system that can constantly charge the batteries, so that the vehicle runs uninterruptedly.

Keeping all these limitations in view, some companies have designed devices that harness the wind power to generate power to charge the batteries. However, these devices also have some drawbacks and therefore lot of research is being done to improvise upon them and come up with new devices to charge the batteries. In continuation to these efforts, I have come up with a device called 'Tickoo Wind Turbine' that will be mounted at the top of the car. In this device, the wind strikes the blades of the turbine, thus generating power that can be used to charge the batteries of the car.
