Experimental study on the energetics of the crank generator and the pull-cord device Marko Popovic*, Colin Bulthaup** Hugh Herr* * MIT ML Biomechatronics Group, ** Potenco
Overview 10 test subjects (age 8-12 years) Generator devices attached to solid base. Mechanical properties linked to the circuit parameters. Three experimental conditions: –Crank generator, max power 1 minute –Pull-cord device, max power 1 minute –Pull-cord device & oxygen mask, comfortable pace 3 minutes 5.1 W 12.8 W 3.9 W (Steady metabolic consumption 4.4 W ) Average Electric Power

Metabolic Study The energy cost estimated from O2 consumption and CO2 production (with respiratory exchange ratio, V(CO2)/V(O2) less than one) K4 telemetric system consists of silicon mask with flow-rate turbine and O2, CO2 analyzer Resting values of O2, CO2 were subtracted from values obtained during the trials with pull-cord device
Rate of Net Metabolic Consumption

Questionnaire How did you like the hand-crank generator? How did you like the pull-string generator? Were you comfortable wearing the face mask? -The hand-crank was uncomfortable but it could possibly work better if the handle was a little bigger. -It was OK. Hands and arms became a little tired. -I dont like it. It hurts my knuckles. -I felt this was much more comfortable than the hand-crank generator and I produced more power with it. -I preferred the pull-string generator over the hand crank. It was easier to gain speed to generate power. -I loved this. It didnt hurt like the hand-crank and felt like it didnt take as much energy as the hand crank. -It was perfectly comfortable wearing the face mask. -Yes – no problems -The face mask feels weird.
Discussion & Summary Max power generation during 1 minute trials strongly in favor of the pull-cord device with average output ~ 13 W; for the crank generator average output is ~ 5 W Comfortable pace power generation with the pull-cord device during 3 minutes trials resulted in a moderate average generated power, ~ 4.5 W, and moderate efficiency, ~ 5.5 %. Net efficiency equals product of bio, transmission & motor efficiencies (back of the envelope estimate ~0.25, ~0.7, ~0.6)
Discussion & Summary Results strongly dependant on the experimental setup. Results dependant on posture and specific movement strategy. Realistically, presented numbers should be thought as a lower bounds on both generated power and efficiency. According to filled questionnaires kids were typically more satisfied with the pull-cord device.
