With the aim of developing smart standalone systems for improving power generation, this paper is focused on implementation of a hybrid stationary exercise bicycle for generating electricity with increased output power.

With that in mind, the concept of magnetic forces has been utilized to assist the cyclist pedaling action, which further enhances the performance.

Additionally, an alternator is re-arranged as motor is connected as well as operated as part of the hybrid system.

While implementing, the design is benchmarked against a basic cycling assisted power generation system. As for the result analysis, both aforementioned systems are tested for the same loaded conditions.

According to the findings of the paper, the proposed hybrid system tolerated higher loads, reached a higher maximum speed and output 17.4% more usable power, thus ensuring better performance.
