The journey first started from engine running from coal energy, diesel engine, electric and now here is an another innovation transportation solution VECTORR trains. The train which runs using only air power from the atmosphere. diesel engines generate high carbon emission and required lot of diesel to run due to high weight and generate high carbon emission which is not good for the environment. Diesel engines are used for the long journey where electric lines are not available. Now all these diesel engines are replacing with electric trains but they require lots of electricity to run trains. We still depend on non-renewable energy sources to generate electricity due to energy crises, the non-renewable source will not available in future. The renewable source is still an alternative solution but not efficient enough to fulfill whole world energy requirement. Researchers are working hard to find another energy sources to run transportation system on the eco-friendly way and they got the solution after a lot of research. Dream of a 100% eco-friendly trains will become true in next coming years. The whole project is in the testing phase and soon will be available commercially. Now, we will discuss on the future VECTORR trains which are eco-friendly and energy efficient…….
The name VECTORR comes from the vector, a mathematical term meaning direction and magnitude and Torr is defined as a metric measurement of pressure.The name VECTORR comes from the vector, a mathematical term meaning direction and magnitude and Torr is defined as a metric measurement of pressure.It uses the most elemental, movable and breathable source, it is “AIR”. We use air as wind energy to convert it into electricity but it will now also used to run trains.The VECTORR trains system uses air pressure and vacuum to run along elevated tracks. The vacuum is created due to the stationary power system in a continuous tube which is located below the rails on the gateway.The piston (power tube) that runs on his own tracks while creating an enough pressure inside the tube.The stationary system which pulls the air from vacuum from the from the front side of the piston and another side which was empty again air enters on the back side of the free piston.This creates the differential pressure that moves VECTORR.To make it reach at high speed up to 200 MPH, The VECTORR is a very light weight and truck wheels are locked onto the angle shaped tracks on the guideway at an appropriate locking angle. The configuration of the wheels does not require flanges, the wheel system is inclined and due to low friction it helps to run at high speed.
- Using Clean energy As source of power
- Efficient and high efficient
- zero noise pollution and carbon emission
- The VECTORR system does not require a catenary system
- it uses elevated gateways, which eliminates grade crossings which allow a safer environment for passengers and workers
- VECTORR is very lightweight and requires less space and money to build it transportation way
- It runs on high speed up-to 200 mph
