Abstract

A new methodology is proposed in this paper capable of predicting the impact of induction motor load starting on the bus voltages of an interconnected power system. The profile of the voltage sag is predicted for each bus, which is used to improve the power quality of a system. The methodology is investigated with the use of a four bus, as well as fourteen bus IEEE interconnected system. Mathematical and simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness and applicability of the proposed methodology for the application.

Abstract

The objective of this research is to design a Solar Powered Portable Power Bank for mobile phone using sunlight as its ultimate power, which can be used effectively during disaster events. It has in-built solar panel which converts the solar energy to electrical energy. The charge is then transferred to a battery for storage of charge for further use, with the battery having a microcontroller indicating the percent of charge present in the battery. The battery is connected to a charging circuit having an USB port as output to the respective Mobile phones.

Abstract

In this system, a RFID reader is used at the entry point for user authentication. A GSM module is used so that the parking slot no, the duration of parking and the fee deducted from his card is sent to the user when he exits the parking space. The lights in the parking space glow only when the vehicle is present. The system is designed in such a way that when it senses a vehicle, it starts functioning and light turns off when vehicle crosses it. The concept can be used for both basement parking and open parking lots. We have added a feature to the design that the system senses the intensity of light. During the day time, when light intensity is high, the lighting system remains off. It is possible because of the use of various motion sensors like IR Sensor, LDR Sensor, ATmega16 microcontroller and with the help of embedded C. IR Sensor detects the motion of the vehicle and allows the light to glow accordingly. LDR Sensor senses the intensity of light and makes the lights to remain off during the day time. ATmega16 is a powerful microcontroller which is used for interfacing and programming purpose which controls the whole system.
