Researchers from IIT Delhi have designed a device that can generate electricity from water drops. Many small devices can be powered by this device. This can be used to power clock transmitters, IoT devices, etc.
There is one more feature of this unique device developed by IIT Delhi. According to the researchers, this device can also generate electricity from salty water.

GENERATE ELECTRICITY FROM WATERDROPS
According to IIT Delhi, it can generate electricity by using the triboelectric effect and electrostatic induction from raindrops, water currents, and even ocean waves. The generated electricity can be stored in the battery for further use.
Giving more information on this subject, Professor Neeraj Khare of IIT Delhi said that we have come to the device that the device has been made in Delhi, its special thing is that electricity can be generated when water drops fall in it. The design of this device is very simple.
Charging will be done with the nanocomposite polymer film
TriboEffect is a nanocomposite polymer film that generates electricity when two different materials are brought into contact. When water droplets fall on it, there is some charging in the water droplets. Through a process, electricity is generated from it.
IIT Delhi told that it has taken 3 years to make this project.
Professor Neeraj Khare of IIT Delhi said that there are many smaller devices than those that generate milliwatt power in it, which we can give power to. These include many devices that we can give power to, such as clocks, transmitters, IoT devices can be given power. It may be used in many more devices of this type in the future.
Professor Neeraj Khare of IIT Delhi says that even if the water is salty, there is no problem. On the contrary, even more, electricity can be generated from salty water. This means that if sea waves are coming then even more electricity can be generated using this device there.
