Renewable Energy Development Application of Discrete Power Converter for Sustainable Development in Nigeria
The development of Africa (especially Nigeria) has been hampered generally by inadequate sustainable technology development and application. According to world energy council, about 50% of Nigerians have no access to electricity and this is limiting the development of the country. Mechanization of small scale farming will also boost the agricultural production of this country at large. “Discrete Power Converter (DPC) also known as Kornich machine is a symmetrical compound machine based on particular combination in vertical plane and two rocking levers with two mechanical feedbacks, which is driven by gravity force of freeflowing mass oscillating mode and is able to transfer energy in the forms of reciprocating motion in vertical and horizontal planes.” In this study, DPC will be discussed in details and the application of this technology to enhance sustainable development in Nigeria. Renewable energy potential and challenges in Nigeria will also be highlighted.
