    Abstract

    The gate into residential or vehicle parking area is often equipped with a portal (barrier gate) that is a simple crossbar to block the road. Whenever a vehicle passes through the road, the portal is opened and closed by rotating mechanism of the portal at one end. Portals in public area, are usually not manually operated by officers, but automatic systems powered by an electric motor and become an integral unit with an electric parking ticket printer. In one operating cycle this unit requires small amount of electricity. However for repeatedly large numbers of operating cycle, the accumulation of required energy will also be large. This study is modeling of a mechanical energy harvesting system utilizes the weight of a vehicle as a source of electrical energy. As the vehicle pass on energy harvesting system, electrical energy is produced to operate the automatic portal unit. Data taken from the specification of a light weight passanger vehicle provides net energi of 592 Nm to the mechanical energy harvesting system. It is more than enough as a source of energy to operate portal (barrier gate) for one operation cycle. The portal needs an energy of 221 Nm for every operation cycle.
