3D model of the human powered electricity generators for ODWHES. The first HP electricity generator is a regular road bicycle which has the back wheel removed and is directly placed on the axle of the electricity genertator. The chain of the bicycle is placed on the gears (same gears as on the bicycle wheel) on the axle of the electricity generator.
It should be noted that a small variation is present in regards to the inner tube on the wheel: the valve on this has been removed and the inner tube is filled with rubber (liquid at time of insertion). This eliminates the possibility of 'running flat'.
The second HP electricity generator is a device inspired on the CableFlex. However, instead of using regular rollers, 2 electricity generators are used allowing to generate power. The axles come above the feet (the feet are placed between the 4 axle mounts).
Both systems can be attached to the AC or DC breaker box of the ODWHES. If wired to AC, either rectifiers need to be placed in between (as the electricity generators used in the designs are dynamo's and thus generate DC power), or the electricity generators need to be swapped (for alternators) and then, the electricity generators can be hooked up directly to the AC breaker box of the ODWHES.
