MINIMISING PENALITY IN INDUSTRIAL POWER CONSUMPTION BY ENGAGING APFC UNIT
The automatic power factor correction panel provides the required compensation to overcome the inductive reactance by using the power capacitors. The microcontroller 8051 receives a current signal from the current transformer and simultaneously gives the signals to the various contractors to connect the capacitors in the line for compensation. Thus adding the capacitor to the line will compensate for the reactive power and maintains the power factor near unity. This will avoid the penalty to the industrial consumers and may get the incentives.
AUTO SELECTION OF ANY AVAILABLE PHASE IN THREE-PHASE SUPPLY SYSTEM
It is often noticed that power interruption in the distribution systems is about 70% for single-phase faults. An automatic phase selector system is required for uninterrupted power supply to critical loads in the case of power failure in any phase. Although, there are many designs that can perform almost similar functions like, single-phase change-over switches, two phases automatic transfer switches, and three-phase automatic change over switch, but this model is about an automatic phase switchover (phase selector) which is designed for only three phase AC input power to single-phase output applications.
LED LIGHTING SYSTEM WITH CHARGE CONTROLLER BY USING SOLAR POWER
The main objective of the project is to suggest a system that uses solar power and LED lighting technology in a more efficient way. Solar power systems use solar panels to convert the heat energy directly to electricity. This electricity is stored in the batteries that can supply only D.C output. All available lighting systems including LED lights, work on A.C power. So, the D.C supply needs to be converted to A.C using inverters, which causes some loss of power. The amount of power loss during this process depends on the efficiency of the inverter.
POWER GENERATION FROM SPEED BREAKER WITH AUTOMATIC LIGHTING SYSTEM
The basic principle is simple energy conversion form mechanical to electrical energy by using the vehicles weight (potential energy) & motion (kinetic energy). The electro-kinetic power generator is a method of generating electricity by harnessing the kinetic energy of automobiles that drives over the track. The track operates by virtue of a number of specially designed rollers placed on it. When the vehicles pass on the rollers, pressure is exerted on them, which develops the mechanical energy and by means of a specially designed mechanism, a generator is driven, which is capable of producing AC/DC current.
AUTOMATIC AGRICULTURE MOTOR CONTROL WITH IOT AND MOISTURE SENSOR
Agriculture is one of the important fields where water is required in tremendous quantity. Wastage of water is a major problem in agriculture. The main objective of this project is to control the motor. This project is done with wireless signal transmission and also to provide automatic irrigation to the plants which help in saving money and water. The entire system is controlled using a Mega828 microcontroller which is programmed as giving the interrupt signal to the sprinkler.
DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF WINDMILL FOR POWER GENERATION
Energy generated from solar, wind, biomass, hydropower, geothermal, and ocean resources is considered a technological option for generating clean energy. But the generated from solar and windmills is much less than the production by fossil fuels, however, electricity generation by windmills is also picking up due to the adoption of mini windmills that can be mounted on roof tops,vacant spaces as well on poles of street lights. The various factors that affects the power generation on different parts of the country depend on the geography and adopting the low power 200-300W windmills in low wind speed areas. Fabricate 3 blade windmills of 200-300W power generation and mount the same on the campus with suitable structure for power generation and study the power outputs in different parts of the day and in different parts of the day and in different weather conditions.
ASSEMBLING OF SOLAR VEHICLE
The natural resources like fuel, coal etc. Are facing a hard time to keep pace with the increasing demand. Therefore, to carry out this demand it is quite necessary to make new explorations of natural resources of energy and power. Therefore sunlight is now a days considered to be a source of energy it is implemented in various day to day applications. Solar energy is being used to produce electricity through sun light. With the help of this Technology we aim to make solar energy powered car in our project the main component to build a solar car is the solar panel. The Solar cells collect a portion of the sun’s energy and store it into the batteries of the solar car. Before that happens, power trackers converts the energy collect from the solar array to proper system voltage, So That the batteries and the motor can use it. After the energy is stored in the batteries, it is available for use by the motor and motor controller to drive the car. We are going to use to set of batteries one of which will get electrical energy from the panel to drive the motor.
