Abstract: A system similar to bicycle used to spin a flywheel by human power and the energy is stored in the flywheel as rotational kinetic energy. Such an energy source is conceptualized as Human Powered Flywheel Motor ( HPFM). It can be substituted for electrical motor for transient processes. As the energy is drained continuously from the flywheel the output speed of Flywheel Motor decreases continuously which in turn runs a process unit. An instrumentation system was designed to measure performance of Novel Gearbox for Human Powered Flywheel Motor which maintain the output speed considerably constant using automatic shifting of cluster pinions by means of flyball governor. An attempt is made to develop instrumentation system for measuring rotational speed of various shafts and know the exact time of engagement and disengagement of sliding gear-pinion pairs of novel gearbox.
