This project work describes about lifting the water for the irrigation purpose & generating the power. In day to day life there is a much more use of swing cradle by children, in the swing cradle energy is created through swing action that energy can be used for lifting the water in village area as well as in gardens. To lift the water, system used is double acting reciprocating pump. The use of swing cradle reduces the cost of centrifugal pump installation. This work proposes the implementation of water lifting and power generation in swing cradle mechanism. When the seating of the swing set moves forward & backward some torque is induced in the shaft by the holding bars of swing set. This torque displaces the larger sprocket which is pivoted over axis of shaft, causing the angular displacement. This angular movement is converted to rotational motion which is connected to smaller sprocket by chain attachment. The sprocket rotates the spur gear arrangement which runs the dynamo to generate the electricity this set up is done at one side of shaft in swing cradle. Lifting water is done in other side of the shaft is connected to connecting rod and this connecting rod is further connected with reciprocating pump through which water is pumped. This project work is eco-friendly, pollution free, the maintenance cost is less and requires less human efforts.
