Accumulator Volume Sensor Final Project Report (Electrical Project)

Accumulator Volume Sensing Team has developed two sensor designs aimed at detecting the position of the piston within a 4024 accumulator. The two designs include the use of a Renishaw LMA10 magnetic encoder and a SpectraSymbol HotPot linear potentiometer. The magnetic encoder solution drastically increases the accuracy of sensing the piston position compared to the current solutions of both a […]

Laser Guided Vehicle: Java and MATLAB for Control (Robotics/Computer Project)

This study addresses the generic problem of navigating a robot between obstacles. The experimental case tested here is driving through doorways, which can be seen as a special case of a junction between corridors. The robot used was the MICA wheelchair. On-board there is a scanning laser tilted downwards, a fiber optic gyro and odometric encoders. From the laser scan […]

Use Sna Instead of Vna to Characterize Indoor Channel: Implementing and Rms Theory

In this report we focus on the use of an economical way on how Scalar Network Analyzer (SNA) works instead of Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) to estimate the phase angle of signals in indoor channel. This is detailed in RMS delay theory and simulation section, experimental is designed in the according Experiment Design section, where we also state the required […]

Digital Compensation of Distortion in Audio Systems (Electronics Project)

The advancements of computational power in low cost FPGAs are giving the opportunity to implement real-time compensation of loudspeakers and audio systems. This project aims at evaluating methods for digital compensation of distortion in audio systems. The need for expensive commercial audio systems is reduced when the fidelity of much cheaper audio systems easily can be improved by real-time compensation. […]

Differential Projection for Arbitrary 3-Phase Power Transformers (Electrical/Electronics Project)

This study describes how to provide standardized, current based, differential protection for any three-phase power transformer, including phase-shifting transformers with variable phase angle shift and transformers of all construction types and internal on-load tap-changer configurations. The use of standard transformer differential protection for such applications is considered impossible in the protective relaying standards and practices currently applied. The first part […]

SMARTEYE – Vehicle Security System Using Facial Recognition (EEE/ECE Project)

Facial recognition has gained increasing interest in the recent decade. Over the years there have been several techniques being developed to achieve high success rate of accuracy in the identification and verification of individuals for authentication in security systems. This project experiments the concept of combining of multilevel wavelet decomposition transformation and neural network for facial recognition in a specific […]

Tracking Devices for Elderly Care System by using GPS and RF Tags (Electronics Project)

At present, elderly people are surfing from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease across the world. The aged population has been increasing and will continue to do so in the coming decades. Those elderly who are suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease require continuous attention. So these people need a responsible person (either a nurse or family caretaker) to look after and […]

Checking the integrity of Global Positioning Recommended Minimum (GPRMC) sentences using Artificial Neural Network (ANN) (Electronics/Computer Project)

In this study, Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is used to check the integrity of the Global Positioning Recommended Minimum (GPRMC) sentences. The GPRMC sentences are the most common sentences transmitted by the Global Positioning System (GPS) devices. This sentence contains nearly every thing a GPS application needs. The data integrity is compared on the basis of the classification accuracy and […]

Electric Smart Load Meter (Electrical Project)

This project details the design of an electric meter that reads the signals of any device plugged into an outlet and displays cost readings that may potentially reduce power consumption. The sensor monitors whether a plugged in device continuously consumes power after completely charging up. For a charging device, the current remains constant until the device reaches 100% charge. Once […]

Influence of Scaling Effects on Hub Loads of a Horizontal Wind Turbine (IEEE Electrical Project)

Wind industry aims to generate more energy and reduce energy cost by increasing energy capacity of machines. As a result the loading scales up non-linearly. Nowadays there is a lack of studies of variation loads (specially fatigue ones) due to the up-scaling of wind turbine. This paper aims to generate a general fatigue load trends of several wind turbines, which […]
