Human Powered Bike Powered Generator? Answered
I am an artist and I am creating a bike powered led sculpture for kids at a museum. I need some help making the connections correctly and finding the correct electric motor and volts not to over load the LED light bulbs as well as how to figure out the easiest gear ratio for kids to turn,
There will be five 60 Watt /120 Volt LED bulbs connected to deep cycle car battery (used as a voltage regulator) that will be connected to a stationary bike pedaled by visitors to display the human energy potential.
I want to figure out what type of electric motor I will need for those lights and how to make the gear ratio for the bike easy enough to turn for kids...
Any knowledge on these calculations will help.
Thank you !
