ABSTRACT
ECO-FRIENDLY FAN BY USING THE PRINCIPLE OF MAGLEV/MAGNETIC FORCE
MARA Junior Science College Mukah
Sarawak

A regular electric ceiling fan will face some problems such as electric overload which may cause
malfunction and can cause the movement speed of the fan become slower as it has been used for
a long time. To overcome this problems, other alternative should be used which is the magnetic
ceiling fan. This research is fully studied from the internet. This ceiling fan uses the maglev
principle where it rotates by using the force of magnet (push and pull). Based on the data that we
had collected, the maglev principle will be able to rotate the ceiling fan. Briefly, the maglev
principle is commonly used in the train transportation industry to move the train (maglev train).
This concept we practice it into a ceiling fan (maglev ceiling fan). As a conclusion,
magnetic/maglev ceiling fan will be able to be in vented in the real life as the principle that used
by this device had already been showed by the maglev train. From the conclusion, we can
conclude that a regular ceiling fan can be rotated / moved by the principle of maglev.

1.1 INTRODUCTION



Electric fan is a device has been commonly used by people nowadays. It needs electrical energy
to rotate or move and a regular ceiling fan usually uses 10-100 watts. This amount of electric
energy consumed will cause bad effects to our life and beloved earth. A regular ceiling fan will
face some problems such as electric overload which may cause malfunction or causing the
movement speed of the fan to become slower. This shows that the use of a regular ceiling fan is
not efficient enough as it causes many disadvantages. To overcome this problem, other
alternatives should be used which is the magnetic ceiling fan. This type of fan uses the principle
of magnet which is maglev and propulsion. Maglev or magnetic levitation is a system which the
vehicle runs from the guide way by using electromagnetic forces from the superconducting
magnets on board the vehicle and coils on the ground. The following are the principles that are
commonly used in maglev:
1) Principle of magnetic levitation
2) Principle of lateral guidance
3) Principle of propulsion

1.2 STATEMENT OF ISSUES

A regular ceiling fan usually consumes 10-100 watts. The amount of electric energy consumed
by a regular ceiling fan will cause bad effects to our life and beloved earth. A regular ceiling fan
will face some problems such as electric overload which may cause malfunction or causing the
movement speed of the fan to become slower. Besides, the regular ceiling fan will not be
functional if there is no electricity power as it needs electric power to function. This shows that
the use of a regular ceiling fan is not efficient enough as it causes many disadvantages. By using
the Maglev force, it can overcome all the problems.

1.3 HYPOTHESIS

To overcome this problem, other alternatives should be used which is the magnetic ceiling fan.
This type of fan uses the principle of magnet which is maglev and propulsion. Maglev or
magnetic levitation is a system which the vehicle runs from the guide way by using
electromagnetic forces from the superconducting magnets on board the vehicle and coils on the
ground. The following are the principles that are commonly used in maglev:
1) Principle of magnetic levitation
2) Principle of lateral guidance
3) Principle of propulsion

.OBJECTIVE

There are certain objectives that we are trying to reach with this product. The objectives that we
are trying to reach are divided into two which is the main objective and the specific objectives.
First of all, the main objective of the product is to discover a new method to rotate a regular
ceiling fan by using magnetic force without using any electric power. The specific objectives of
our research are to show that magnetic ceiling fan can be invented and can be used officially
worldwide. Furthermore, our objective is also to invent and eco-friendly fan.

2.1 INTRODUCTION


Electric fan is a device has been commonly used by people nowadays. It needs electrical energy
to rotate or move and a regular ceiling fan usually uses 10-100 watts power of electric. This
amount of electric energy consumed will cause bad effects to our life and beloved earth
especially if it has been used worldwide. This shows that regular ceiling fans need a big amount
of electric power to be functioned or to be used. A regular ceiling fan also will face some
problems such as electric overload which may cause malfunction or causing the movement speed
of the fan to become slower. Besides, the regular ceiling fan will not be functional if there is no
electricity power as it needs electric power to function. This shows that the use of a regular
ceiling fan that using electric power is not efficient enough as it causes many disadvantages to us
and Mother Nature. To overcome these problems, other alternatives should be used which is the
Maglev/magnetic ceiling fan. This type of fan uses the principle of magnet which is maglev and
propulsion. Maglev or magnetic levitation is a system which the vehicle runs from the guide way
by using electromagnetic forces from the superconducting magnets on board the vehicle and
coils on the ground. The following are the principles that are commonly used in maglev:
1) Principle of magnetic levitation
2) Principle of lateral guidance
3) Principle of propulsion
Thus, by using these principles on the ceiling fan, a Maglev ceiling fan can be invented.

2.2 STUDIES DEFINITION



2.2.1 Inventing an Eco-friendly product

The development of the product will be able minimize the usage of electrical energy.

2.2.2 Discovering a new method

Through the ability of the Maglev fan, it will not only be able to minimize the usage of electrical
energy used but else enables the discovering of a new method to rotate / move a regular ceiling
fan.

4.1 MARKET STUDY

The Eco-friendly Fan by Using the Principle of Maglev is on their way to be popular especially among
family, school and companies. It is because a regular family usually uses a regular ceiling fan in their
home. Furthermore, schools also usually uses regular ceiling fan in especially in the classrooms.
Moreover, big companies also uses regular ceiling fans especially in the offices. This is why we are
targeting our product to be sold to family, school and companies.

5.4 Project Development
First of all, we design a basic prototype using a CD, magnets and a CD stand to prove that the
Maglev Principle is real and can be used in this project.
Then, we design a real design of Maglev ceiling Fan using the Paint software. For this
invention (Maglev Ceiling Fan), it requires another principle which is the principle of propulsion
of magnet.
Last but not least, we will create a real prototype of a Basic Maglev Principle Ceiling Fan and we
assumed the prototype as the Maglev Ceiling Fan.
