Auto Power Supply Control from 4 Different Sources: Solar, Mains, Generator &Inverter to ensure No Break Power
The main objective of this project is to provide uninterrupted power supply to a load, by selecting the supply from any source out of 4 such as mains, generator, and inverter and solar automatically in the absence of any of the source.
The demand for electricity is increasing every day and frequent power cuts is causing many problems in various areas like industries, hospitals and houses. An alternative arrangement for power source is a must.
In this project uses four switches to demonstrate the respective failure of that power supply. When any of the switches is pressed it shows the absence of that particular source, switches are connected to microcontroller as input signals. A microcontroller of 8051 family is used.
The output of microcontroller is given to the relay driver IC, which switches appropriate relay to maintain uninterrupted supply to the load. The output shall be observed using a lamp drawing power supply from mains initially. On failure of the mains supply (which is actuated by pressing the appropriate switch) the load gets supply from the next available source, say an inverter.
If the inverter also fails it switches over to the next available source and so on. The current status, as to which source supplies the load is also displayed on an LCD. As it is not feasible to provide all 4 different sources of supply, one source with alternate switches are provided to get the same function.
The project can be further enhanced by using other sources like wind power also and then taking into consideration for using the best possible power whose tariff remains lowest at that moment.

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:
- A Complete set of tools, circuit diagrams, tested PCD, zero board, audiovisuals and everything else you will need to execute your project to perfection.
- 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.. "Ravi Teja

"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) "Anusha

"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"Mr. Ramesh Kumar Jha

Q: What is the concept behind this project?
A: The concept behind this project is to provide uninterrupted power supply from any of the available supply
Q: Can the lamp be replaced by any other load?
A: Yes, any load with rating up to 200W can replace the lamp.
Q: What is the family of microcontroller is used?
A: A 40 pin microcontroller from 8051 family is used in this project.
Q: Does this project work on different supplies?
A: We don’t supply all four sources of supply in the project but only one source with 4 relays which are capable of taking supply from 4 different sources. So you can use any other 3 sources if available at your end. Please watch the video carefully.
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.
Q: What to do when the lamp fails and what is the maximum lamp rating that can be used?
A: If the lamp fails one can use any lamp or bulb which is used in homes up to 100W. We suggest you to go for low watt bulbs.
