Abstract

A regenerative brake system is a system using the power from the battery to run the bike when going uphill—in saving mode—and recharge the battery when the bike goes downhill or on a flat ground—in charging mode. The system includes the electric part, and the transmission part. However, how can we know whether it works or not, or how efficient it is? This raises some methods to test the system. First, a small bulb will be connected to the circuit, and it will light up when the battery is charged. Second, the bike will be able to run 20 meters without any human forces. The farther the system can go, the better efficiency it gets. Finally, the system has to be stable, and safe for the user. With all those tasks above, the system will be a success if it can perform them.
