The study population was made of 316 and 262 making a total of 578 students in the Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering from the Accra and Kumasi institutions respectively. A samples size of 25% was randomly selected from the total populations of the two study institutions....

Design and Construction of a Small Scale Wind Power Generating System by Converting a SIngle-Phase AC Motor (Ceiling Fan) to a Wind Turbine: A Case Study of the Northern Region of Ghana

ABSTRACT The main aim of any electric power supply system in the world is to provide uninterrupted power supply to all its consumers at all times. But in developing countries like Ghana, the electric power generated does not meet the demands of the growing number of consumers of electricity hence there is inadequate power supply which results from frequent power outages. This does not promote development in the public and private business sectors it has left many people without el...

REMOTE MONITORING OF A DISTRIBUTION TRANSFORMER

ABSTRACT The main objective of this project is to develop a simple low cost microcontroller based remote distribution transformer monitoring system using wireless technology which acquires key transformer parameters like temperature, voltage and load current using various sensors to display the real-time values on LCD and forwards them to a cell phone in a remote location by SMS. This project was developed by using Arduino board with ATMEGA328 Microcontroller, SI...

INVESTIGATING INTO THE CAUSES OF ELECTRICAL FIRE OUTBREAK IN RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS IN KUMASI METROPOLIS

ABSTRACT The increasing rate of electrical fires in the Kumasi Metropolis has become a matter of worry to many residents. Residential fires in Kumasi constitute the highest incidence of fire outbreaks recorded. In an attempt to address the alarming rate of fire outbreaks in Ghana, the Fire Precaution (Premises) Regulation (2003) LI 1725 was passed to enable Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) to carry out inspection of proposed and existing premises, review buildi...

Investigating into the Causes of Electrical Fire Outbreak in Residential Buildings in Kumasi Metropolis

ABSTRACTThe increasing rate of electrical fires in the Kumasi Metropolis has become a matter of worry to many residents. Residential fires in Kumasi constitute the highest incidence of fire outbreaks recorded. In an attempt to address the alarming rate of fire outbreaks in Ghana, the Fire Precaution (Premises) Regulation (2003) LI 1725 was passed to enable Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) to carry out inspection of proposed and existing premises, review building plan with regard t...

ASSESSING THE CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULES IN AHANTA WEST DISTRICT OF GHANA.

ABSTRACT The main objective for this study was to assess the challenges associated with the use of photovoltaic modules in Ahanta West District of Ghana. Survey was considered to be the best for the research design. Data were gathered by means of issuing questionnaires to some selected groups who one way or the other use solar power in the research district. In all, 68 respondents were purposively selected from some households, schools, clinics, companies and traders who use or de...

IMPLEMENTATION OF A PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING DEVICE TO DETECT PATIENT VITAL SIGNS DURING TREATMENT IN GHANA

Instructional Guide to Demonstrate the Effects of the Environment on Electrical Circuit in the Mining Industry

ABSTRACT The study was designed to investigate the impacts of mining on electrical circuits in the catchment communities with specific reference to Damperyaw mining company. A careful observation of the activities of Damperyaw mining community at the catchment areas in terms of effects of the prevailing environmental conditions reveal that, most catchment communities have issues and concern about how the mining activities are affecting their electrical gargets and appliance. The descrip...

A SIMPLE DESIGN METHOD FOR NONLINEAR CONTROL OF POWERFACTOR CORRECTION BOOST CONVERTER

ABSTRACT Typical switched-mode power supplies employ diode rectifiers for the AC to DC conversion. They draw input current in short pulses rather than in smooth sine waves and this puts stress on the wiring, circuit breakers and even distribution equipment provided by utilities. This type of utility interface generates harmonics and both of the input power factor (PF) and total harmonic distortion (THD) are poor. To minimize the stresses and maximize the power handling capabilitie...
