HYBRID TWO WHEELER

vuvyuy

The vehicles which run on fuel have many limitations such as petrol is exhaustible and causes environmental pollution. The battery run vehicles are shallow on the performance side and are prone to malfunction. Through this project, we wish to design a system which runs engine and motor negating their individual limitations and maximizing their performance. Basically, fusion of two systems where the battery drives the vehicle at low speeds and passes the drive control to the petrol engine in case of reaching a set speed limit. The battery again takes over when the speed falls, which limits the usage of fuel at low speeds and hence increases the mileage. The system reduces environmental pollution momentously by reducing the Carbon-di-oxide emission and consuming less fuel.

LUCID PIPE HYDRO ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION

In most gravity fed water transmission pipe line, it is desired to reduce excess pressure head to prevent undue strain on a pipe line and lower the incidence of leaks. The Lucid pipe power system converts it to low cost electricity there by removing unwanted pressure and generate the energy at the same time. Energy that can be put used behind the grid or put back on the grid. System extracts a small percentage of pressure head provide nearly invisible operation allowing water operators to full fill primary mission of delivering water to consumers. The estimates demonstrate hydrokinetic turbines to not only be a clean, reliable, and continuous power source, but to also be a cost-effective investment in ideal sites.

IOT BASED THMS

The implementation of online monitoring system integrates internet of things (IOT) Modem, with single chip Raspberry-pi, sensors installed at the distribution transformer site. The output parameters such as temperature, voltage and current of a transformer are monitored, processed and recorded in server. System programmed with some predefined instructions to check abnormal conditions. If there is any abnormality in the system, IOT module will send messages to designated mobile telephone containing information about the abnormality condition. For this purpose, we use three sensors interfaced with Arduino. The recorded data can be send using Wi-Fi module and accessed from anywhere around the world trough HTTP protocol. This helps in identifying and solving a problem before a failure without human dependency.

AUTOMATIC SOLAR TRACKING USING PLC

In general, the Sun’s Path is from East to West but the position changes from season to season. We have designed a system which rotates in Single dimensions so as to trap maximum amount of photons from the Sun rays. By doing this the output efficiency of the system is increased compared to the efficiency of single axis tracking system. The overall project is controlled by programmable logic controller and the time based values, rotation of panels using the stepper motor. The designed tracking system consists of a PLC which controls DC servomotors with control software to move the system panel according to the information from the time based input, keeping the panel always perpendicular to sun rays.

IMPLEMENTATION OF AUTONOMOUS CONVERTOR FOR AGRICULTURAL PUMP

This concept proposes a new converter based on a current-fed multi resonance also known as two-inductor boost converter and a full-bridge Single-phase voltage source inverter for photovoltaic water pumping or treatment systems without the use of chemical storage elements, like batteries. The converter is designed to drive a single-phase induction motor directly from PV energy. The development is oriented to achieve a more efficient, reliable, maintenance-free, and cheaper solution than the standard ones which uses dc motors or low-voltage synchronous motors. It is further improved with the use of a non-isolated recovery snubber along with a hysteresis controller and a constant duty cycle control to improve its efficiency. Experimental results show a peak efficiency of 85% at a rated power of 250 W for the dc/dc converter plus the single-phase VSI and a peak efficiency of 90% just for the dc/dc converter. The system is expected to have a high lifetime due to the inexistence of electrolytic capacitors, and the total cost of the converter is below 30 Rs/Wp.

It is used for monitoring the voltage, current, isolation in a substation and to protect the system from the rise in mentioned parameters. This automated distribution system is analyzed to develop a secure, reliable and convenient management tool which can use Remote Terminal Unit. The electromagnetic relay is activated as soon as the parameters exceed the predefined threshold values and works as a circuit breaker to switch off the main power supply.RF communication is used to continuously send the instantaneous values to the intermediate station. The SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition system) refers to the combination of telemetry and data acquisition. This also encompasses the collecting of the information via a RTU (remote terminal unit), transferring it back to the central site, carrying out any necessary analysis and control and then displaying that information on a number of operator screens or displays.
