In some industries and homes, there is need to schedule power due to activities performed. This system provides several time points when power should be supplied or disconnected from equipment. This avoids power wastage.
This hardware controls appliances such as fans and bulbs by monitoring the number of people in the room and the number that had left the room. Once the room is empty, the device turns off all the appliances being used.
In this project, a computer monitors the power consumed by an area, once a preset maximum load power is attained, the computer automatically switches a portion of that area to another power source. Once both sources are overloaded, a timing operation is executed to shed the load. This ensures an effective load shedding.
The computer monitors the voltage levels in a 3phase power supply and determines the appropriate working voltage of any three phase equipment to be used before switching the voltage into the equipment. This prevents damage to the equipment. A USB interface is used for data transmission and control.
In this project, we explore the use of synthesized sine wave and pulse width modulation in the construction of a power inverter. Using a microcontroller and sine wave look up table, we generate a precise AC voltage with low harmonic distortion capable of powering any type of load.
This project uses Bluetooth wireless technology to allow control of appliances in a home flawlessly and remotely. The project comprises of a master and slave module. Both modules share a duplex communication allowing the status of the slave modules to be easily identified by the master module.
This project demonstrates the use of Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) control for output voltage regulation of a UPS by detecting and comparing a reference voltage with an input voltage that is taken from the output transformer. This ensures a steady voltage output with varying load levels. We look into conversion of DC to AC using a modified sine wave digital synthesis.
Working on the strengths of a microcontroller; When power fails in the phase in use, the project automatically searches for a phase with power and switch the load over. If all the phases fail, it will start a generator and supply power to the load. When there is power in the mains, it will turn off the generator and switch to the mains.
This project is a simulated 3D display using rotating light emitting diodes working on the principles of persistence of vision to display text and graphical information in a unique and captivating manner. Inductive power transfer as well as display synchronization using hall effect sensors are demonstrated in this project.
A computer is used to monitor the voltage levels in a 3-phase power supply and determines the appropriate working voltage of any three phase equipment to be used before switching the voltage into the equipment. This prevents damage to the equipment. Voltage levels on each phase is displayed on the computer screen as well as other useful information.
