Product Description

White Light Emitting Diode (LED) replaces HID lamps in street lighting system to include dimming feature. A microcontroller of 8051 family is used to control the intensity by developing pulse width modulated signals that drives a MOSFET to switch the LEDs accordingly to achieve desired operation.

In the present system, mostly the lighting up of highways is done through High Intensity Discharge lamps (HID), whose energy consumption is high. Its intensity cannot be controlled according to the requirement so there is a need to switch on to an alternative method of lighting system i.e., by using LEDs. This system is build to overcome the present day drawbacks of HID lamps. This system demonstrates the usage of the LEDs (light emitting diodes) as the light source and its variable intensity control, according to the requirement. LED consumes less power and its life time is more, as compared to the conventional HID lamps. The more important and interesting feature is its intensity can be controlled according to the requirement during non peak hours which is not feasible in HID lamps.

A cluster of LEDs are used to form a street light. The microcontroller contains programmable instructions which controls the intensity of lights based on the PWM (Pulse width modulation) signals generated. The intensity of lights are kept high during the peak hours, as the traffic on the roads tend to decrease slowly in the late nights, the intensity also decreases progressively till morning. Finally it completely shuts down at morning 6, and again resumes at 6pm in the evening. The process is repeated.

This concept in future can be enhanced by integrating it with the solar panel, which converts the solar intensity into corresponding voltage, and this energy is used to feed the highway lights.

Get 100% Assured Successful Results

A simple and effective plan that assures you the best scores, a plan that gives you time to read, learn, practically experience the whole workings of your project and create a successful unit you can proudly showcase. And the best part is this… even if your own project unit malfunctions... you will still have a ready-made project unit for yourself, just in case there is a last minute issue that you or your teammates could not solve. Confused? Well let me explain.

Plan A: Create A Successful Project Model By Yourself

Plan B: Have A Expertly-Made & Quality-Tested Replica Of Your Project For Assured Results

So here’s how it works.

In my engineering days, we used to struggle replicating a PCB model from our text books with real tools. We had a tough time with the circuits and most of the time - they used to fail. So I wanted to solve this problem not just for myself but for all my fellow students like you. Young, energetic and knowledgeable youth who really want to learn but still cannot afford to fail with the project because it matters and the colleges rarely help us out productively.

So I want to give you a beautiful DIY model of the project that also includes:

  1. A Complete set of tools, circuit diagrams, tested PCD, zero board, audiovisuals and everything else you will need to execute your project to perfection.
  2. A ready-made unit of the project itself, so that you can actually see, test and learn in real-time and if by any chance you could not complete the unit by yourself - can submit this unit for an assured first-class score.

Sounds like a dream? Well, yes it is and here’s how you can benefit from this project not just in your final year but also help you with your interviews and in the future too.

"I live in Hyderabad, a place that is known for engineering colleges. Went with frnd and bought a set from Ameerpet(tht hs rdymade stuff like this) and it failed just b4 viva. Thats when we got this thx to a senior who is sorta like a geek.. and let me tell u.. Its one reason why me and my frnds got thru the final sem. Works great and is useful too later.. "

"A must-buy. It helped me practice in real time and learn how to make a project by looking at an actual workable unit. (fyi - you get a fully built unit and another full set of components to build another by yourself) so it was great value for us. We shared the costs by 3 (our team for the project) but i got to keep my unit as the other two kept the original. Showed it for my on-campus and got thru too becuase it not just looked neat and profesionally bt worked great later. (still have it in my room, now working with GE in Bangalore) "

"We have used it for our institution - it is available in lab and has been good for explaining various models in live during class. Strongly suggest every college dept to have it for labs as it is working well - even with regular use at lab for more than 1 year. Note:We got the unit complementarity before launch in 2014 and have later purchased few batches. The team behind it is professional and know what electronics students need and i am writing this review on their request on 13/05/2016"

Q&A

Q:  What is auto intensity control?

A:  Automatically controlling the intensity of street light according to the peak traffic hours in the night time and completely getting switched off at the day time based on time control is known as auto intensity control.

Q:  Which kind of street light is used in this project?

A:  A string of white LEDs are used as street lights and also white LEDs are better than the conventional HID lamps used as street lights.

Q:  What is the family of microcontroller used?

A:  Here a 40 pin microcontroller from 8051 family is used.

Q:  What is the concept used in this project?

A:  PWM technique is used in this project.

Q:  Can this concept be extended with a solar panel?

A:  Yes.

Q:  What is the function of MOSFET in this project? Can we use BJT instead of MOSFET?

A:  Here, MOSFET is used as a switch. BJT can be used, but that needs drive current and not voltage as required for MOSFET.

Q:  What is the formula for calculating smoothing capacitor value?

A:  There is some approximated formula .Peak to peak ripple voltage = Load current in amps / (2*line frequency in hertz *capacitance in farads). But as rule of thumb for 1 A current 1000uF is best. Thus it is load dependent.
