DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION A SIMPLE LIGHT SENSITIVE CIRCUIT

IntroductionThis is the design and construction of a light sensitive circuit which when the sensor is blocked will activate the light emitting diode at the output. The output gain depends on the non-inverting input of the operational amplifier used in this demonstration. This system is made of different component which aided in the functionality of the design.Aim and ObjectiveIn this paper we are to design and construct a light sensitive circuit which senses an obstruction in the sensing unit...

ASSESSMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY USE EFFICIENCY IN NIGERIA FOOD INDUSTRY

INTRODUCTIONEnergy for obvious reasons is regarded as the prime mover of any economy, and the engine of growth around which all sectors of the economy revolve. Thus, it becomes imperative that its development, management, and improvement must have predetermined plans and strategies that are capable of driving the economy towards a sure path of sustainable development .West African region has one of the lowest per capita consumptions as far as energy is concerned. On the other hand, the energy...

THE DEPENDENCE OF WATER LEVEL ON ELECTRICAL POWER GENERATION USING JEBBA HYDROPOWER STATION AS CASE STUDY

INTRODUCTIONSince the 1970s, energy crises have been reported across the world. In Nigeria Chendo (2001) reported that national energy supply is at present almost entirely, dependent on fossil fuels and fire wood. Also, Akinbami (2001) also observed that the total energy consumption in Nigeria comprises of 5.22% of natural gas, 3.05% of hydroelectricity, and 50.45% natural gas, 3.05% of hydroelectricity, and 50.45% of fuel work. Meanwhile, Ozean Journal of Applied Sciences 4(3), 2011 252 Aliy...

HYDRO POWER RESOURCES IN NIGERIA

INTRODUCTIONNigeria is characterized with large expanse of land with remote, isolated communities located at long intervals whose inhabitants are often peasant farmers living below subsistence level these areas are marked by lack of basic infrastructures like road network, telecommunication, water supply and electricity etc.Electricity supply in the country has been through centralized generating station (hydro and thermal) with high capacities (above 100MW). The major operators in the Nigeri...

APPLIANCES CONTROL THROUGH SMS

Abstract     This seminar is designed to make home automation easy to control when a user is not at home. The paper is designed to allow easy use of a mobile phone to control appliances in the home. Using a mobile phone the development of the control system will be carried out using SMS. This will communicate with another mobile phone, which in turn controls the devices attached to microcontroller modules. When the action has been carried ...

Digital Fan Regulator

AbstractDigital (Fan) Regulator is one of the applications of electronics to increase the facilities of life. Fan is one of the unavoidable Electronic equipment in our day to day life. It has become essential element without which people can’t lead a smooth life. The presence of a fan in a house or office is not now considered as a luxury on the other hand it is included in the basic requirement. The uses of new electronic theories have been put down by ex...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A MICRO CONTROLLER BASED FAST FOOD MENU TABLE WITH DOT MATRIX DISPLAY BOARD.

 ABSTRACT:This project design is simply used to display the items demanded by each customer on the table. Each table has four buttons for Rice, beans, amala and akpu, and each of the buttons are connected to the processor. The customers on every table presses the button with the label of the item he or she needed. Then, a screen in the kitchen is used to display the table number and the items demanded.    The major components used in this desi...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF AN ELECTRONIC ATTENDANCE STAFF REGISTER (EAR).

Abstract:The effect of science and technology had led to the development of computers and its application to various production fields. EAR is a new type of attendance software. It is aimed at eliminating the old method of keeping records of staff attendance on daily bases, through electronic means.TABLE OF CONTENTS: CHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION1.1       LITERATURE REVIEW (INTRODUCTION) 1.2       COMPONENTS R...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A MICROCOMPUTER BASED SECURITY SYSTEM WITH INTRUDER POSITION DISPLAY

Abstract:This project is aimed to implement a system that will automate the security system of a given area. It ensures that the user is alerted each time an intruder encroaches a secured position in an area of application through the sounding of alarm.(Siren) More so, information about the intruder’s position will also be made noticed to the user by this security system. The Project will be based on microcomputer and other electronic design to achieve the abov...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF MICROCONTROLLER BASED INTELLIGENT TRAFFIC LIGHT CONTROLLER

ABSTRACT: A traffic light system is an electronic circuitry designed and configured to control the flow of the traffic (vehicular and human) at roads intersection without the physical presence of a traffic warden. This is made possible through the help of a signaling device which is mounted at roads intersection. It is achieved using electronic components and a micro-controller for proper timing and execution.   TABLE OF CONTENTS...

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A MICROCONTROLER BASED INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY LIGHT SYSTEM

ABSTRACTThis Project presents the design and construction of a microcontroller based Intelligent Emergency Light System. It is based on Hardwired control logic and micro programmed control logic using a real time program known as Assembly language. This Project Intelligent Emergency Light will turn on the Emergency light only during the Dark condition. Ordinary emergency light will be switched ON during the power failure condition. So that if there was a power failure in day time th...

SPECIAL FORMULATION OF LIQUID DETERGENT FOR CAR WASH

ABSTRACT The aim of this research work is special formulation of liquid detergent for car wash. In manufacturing liquid detergents, selection of raw materials is been considered as the first step. These raw materials were selected on the basis of several factor such as human and environmental safety, cost compatibility with other ingredients and also the specific properties desired in the final products. Liquid detergent (car wash) is regarded as chemical formulation which essentially co...
