Abstract: Dampers absorb bumps in the road so that the upward velocity of the wheel over the bump isn't transmitted to the car chassis. This provides a comfortable ride to the passengers. Dampers also keep the suspension at as full travel as possible for the given road conditions to keep the wheels planted on the road. Essentially, dampers are oil pump located between the frame of the vehicle and the moving suspension arms to covert kinetic energy from the wheel travel to heat energy. As heat is a wasted form of energy, it is worthwhile to harvest this energy. The damping force is sensitive to velocity, and a linear electromagnetic coil system is used to harvest this energy. The design will be packaged and tested based on the FSAE Race Car as the FSAE competitions are now having hybrid and full electric race where regenerated energy will help improve competition results.
