AbstractThis paper proposes a portable Manual Power Generation System for rural areas as there is a requirement to supply the rural areas of India as well as other countries with reliable electricity. Special attention has been paid for making the propo- sed system to be portable. Local institutions of rural area have to play an important role in the implementa- tion, operation and maintenance of the proposed power generation system. The unregulated voltage gene- rated by the proposed power generation system has been regulated with the help of electronic cir- cuits. A portable power generation system has been developed and tested in the laboratory. Results are presented here.
