Design Of The Heat Exchanger Using MATLAB Programme (Case Study Khartoum Refinery Company Ltd)

ABSTRACT A heat exchanger is a medium that transfers heat energy from a high temperature fluid to another low-temperature fluid without mixing the fluid together. Thermal exchange is one of the most important applications in many fields, such as food processing engineering, especially in the manufacture of materials that are highly sensitive to high temperatures, as well as difficult to heat or raise their temperature by direct methods and other materials. Heat exchangers are used in m...

Design And Implementation Of Vehicles Accident Notification System

Abstract Ever since the invention of cars accident was introduced as a major cause of death and car manufactures has been developing new ways to prevent death by accident. Time is very important factor when it comes to saving a person’s life, any delay in detecting an accident or failing to locate its position life. The solution proposed by this thesis is to use a combination of collision detection unit and identify an accident and report it to the appropriate authorities and clear t...

Speed Control Of DC Motor Using Proportional–Integral–Derivative Controller And Fuzzy Logic

Abstract Fuzzy control systems have been successfully applied to a wide variety of practical problems. It has been shown that these controllers may perform better than conventional controllers, especially when applied to processes difficult to model, with nonlinearities. On the other hand, the direct current (DC) motor has been widely used as well because it is one of the most common actuators used in control systems. The main objective of this research is to control the speed of DC mot...

Multifunctional Piezoelectric System For A Mini UAV

ABSTRACTExtending the Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) flight time with clean energy is a new challenge. One of the pioneering technology in this filed is piezoelectric but duo to low power that can be harvested from the piezoelectric material this technology is rare. This project proposes a computational frame work to predict the maximum power that can be harvested from a piezoelectric material implanted in a UAV wing by activating the resonance mode on the piezoelectric harvester. The suitable w...

Simulation Of Bearing Working Conditions Monitoring System

AbstractMachines are very important in modern society. The bearing compose a supreme component in the machine parts ,hence, many problems arise that minimize bearing life like high temperature, speed and excessive vibration.In this research, electronic simulation system is developed to measure temperature, speed, and vibration in deep groove ball bearing. Hence, the system live alarms and sends signal to stop the machine when it exceeds one of three-designed value.This system was tested...

Design And Implementation Of A Feedback Control System For A Stepper Motor

Abstract Stepper motors are motors that indexes by digital pulses that turn their rotors a fixed fraction of a revolution where they will be clamped securely by their inherent holding torque. Stepper motors are a cost-effective and a reliable choice for many applications such as CNC and Robotics. They are used as open loop control systems which are in no need for feedback devices. Being open loop control systems, their major drawback is that if they were not used within their specified ...
