CONSTRUCTION OF AUTOMATIC WATER LEVEL CONTROLLER FOR BOTH OVERHEAD AND UNDERGROUND TANKS

ABSTRACTAutomatic water level controller for both overhead and underground tank is designed to monitor the level of water in a tank. It displays the level of water and when it is at the lowest level; a pump is activated automatically to refill the tank. When the tank is filled to its maximum capacity, the pump is automatically de-energized. Several circuits are put together to ensure proper working of this design, and the block diagram includes the supply unit, the micro-processor unit, the s...

CONSTRUCTION OF RADIO FREQUENCY GSM SIGNAL JAMMER

Abstract A wireless signal jammer is a device which blocks transmission by creating interference. This wireless signal jammer can be categorized into the Radio Frequency (RF) jammer and GSM jammer.A Radio Frequency jammer is a device used to disrupt or prevent communication via a broadcasted RF signal. It is an RF and GSM frequency disrupter commonly known as wideband radio frequency (RF) and GSM cell phone jammer. Simultaneously, they can blocks all commercial FM broadcast band (87.5 MHz to ...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A 60AMP THREE PHASE AUTOMATIC CHANGE OVER SWITCH.

ABSTRACTThe design and construction of a 60A, 3-Ф automatic power changeover from public utility supply to generator and vice versa was aimed at providing a useful system for use in our homes or offices. The system was achieved with a 66A 3-Ф contactor, 100mA transformers and relays. The system turns on a generator when the public utility (PHCN) is off by cranking the starter and a provision was made to stop cranking when the generator is fully started. A delay was provided to stop the gene...

DESIGN AND INSTALLATION OF 200 WATT SOLAR POWER SYSTEM

ABSTRACTThe 200W solar system was determined by load assessment, solar panel number determination, battery requirement and then inverter sizing. A complete solar panel rated at 200w was however purchased, together with 2 no. 150A solar battery, 1500W inverter and also 10A charge controller. These were assembled together with necessary protective gadgets like cut out switches; to give the 200W expected. The solar panel was mounted outside the building to allow for maximum collection of sun ene...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF 20WATTS WIRELESS PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM

ABSTRACTIt has become inevitable that there would be communication and due to the inherent limitation of the human voice, the public address system came to being. A public address or “P.A SYSTEM” is an electronic amplification system with a mixer ,amplifier and loudspeakers, used to reinforce a given sound , e.g a person making a speech, pre-recorded music ,or message and distributing the sound throughout a venue . The voice signal is passed through a microphone , which converts the sound...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF AN INVERTER TYPE ARC WELDING MACHINE

AbstractWelding is a way of heating pieces of metal using electricity or a flame so that they melt and stick together. It can simply be defined as the process of joining two or more pieces of metal to make the act as a single piece. This is often done by melting the work pieces and adding a filler material to form a pool of molten material that cools to become a strong joint. Because of its strength, welding is used to join beams when constructing buildings, bridges and other structures. Weld...

DESIGN AND CONTRUCTION OF AUTOMATIC PHASE SELECTOR

AbstractAs the growing population of human race widens the gulf between energy supply and energy demand, the imbalance in energy availability sent researchers into excavating for a way of settling this age long squabble. A lasting solution is vested on alternative use of the renewable energy source, a project that is yet to be widely applied. Hence, the continuation of the unsettled yearns for sufficient power. Consequently, the power lines are frequently over loaded resulting to a trip of po...

PATIENT HEARTBEAT AND TEMPERATURE MONITOR

AbstractHeart beat rate means the number of heartbeats per unit time, usually expressed as beats per minute (bpm). The human heart pounds to pump oxygen rich blood to the muscles and carry cell waste products away from the tissues. Heartbeat rate can vary according to the demand of the muscles to absorb oxygen and excrete carbon dioxide changes such as during exercise or sleep. It also varies significantly between individuals based on age, fitness and genetics. This means that the heart must ...

HOME CONTROL SWITCH AUTOMATION USING GSM COMMUNICATION

ABSTRACTThe advantage of cellular communication like GSM technology is a potential solution for such remote controlling activities. GSM-SMS technology can be used to control household appliances from remote places. Remotely, the system allows the home owner to monitor and control his house appliances via his mobile phone set by sending commands in the form of SMS message and receiving the appliances status as well. This system provides ideal solution to the problems caused in situations when ...

CONSTRUCTION OF MICROCONTROLLER BASED VEHICLE SPEED ALARM.

ABSTRACT The project is based on Construction of microcontroller vehicle speed alarm system which automatically warns the driver by activating a panic alarm which is triggered on when the driver exceeds the speed limit set in the system which also stops the alarm when the speed is reduced below the set speed limit. A speedometer system is used to monitor the speed of the car. The voltage output of the speedometer system is used to set the time the alarm comes on. The other component part...

CONSTRUCTION OF MICROCONTROLLER DOT MATRIX DISPLAY SYSTEM

ABSTRACTThe microcontroller based display board is an advert system that displays information based on a specific purpose. The system is designed to enable the viewer know the designers aim.The system comprises of different blocks of functional circuit that are put together to achieve the desired aim. These blocks include; the power supply section, the control section, the demultiplexer section and the display unit. The power supply unit is the section of the system that ensures that the syst...

CONSTRUCTION OF A BLENDER

ABSTRACTBlender is an electric machine for size reducing soft food or liquid mixture.  Blender is some time called liquidizer consists of a glass jar or jug containing a steel blade assembly at the base driven by a small electric motor.Construction of blender was done based on the principle of size of reduction using electric motor as the major driver force.  During the construction of blender, we adopted different stages which includes:i.    The production of prelimi...

DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ONLINE VOTING SYSTEM INCORPORATING FINGER VEIN SENSING

ABSTRACTVoting is a very important process in the Nigerian political system.  It is one of the means and most effective method of ensuring a legitimate government through popular participation.  To enthrone sound democracy and stability in the political system in Nigeria, a system of rig-free voting has to be put in place. Online voter registration systems supplement the traditional paper-based process, by which new voters fill out a paper form that is submitted to election official...

Production and characterization of briquette from chat residue

Briquette is a block of compressed materials suitable for burning. Briquettes can be made from low cost materials such as old newspaper, any bio mass wastes and agricultural residues. They can be used as fuel instead of charcoal, firewood or mineral coal and costs less. Depending on which materials were used to make the briquettes, they may burn cleaner than charcoal. Finally, turning waste materials into a fuel source is attractive because it reduces waste as well as reducing the demand for ...
