Product Description

The project is designed to operate an electrical load multiple number of times as per the program. It overcomes the difficulties of switching the load ON/OFF manually. This proposed has an inbuilt real time clock (RTC) to keep tracking the time and thus to switch ON/OFF the load accordingly.

Load shedding is what electric utilities do when there is a huge demand for electricity that exceeds the supply. Thus in a distribution system it needs to be precisely controlled for specific period of time.

Programmable load shedding time management system is a reliable circuit that takes over the manual task of switch ON/OFF the electrical devices with respect to time. It uses real time clock (RTC) interfaced to a microcontroller of 8051 family. While the set time equals to the real time, then microcontroller gives command to the corresponding relay to turn ON the load and then another command to switch OFF as per the program. Multiple ON/OFF time entry is the biggest advantage with this project. A matrix keypad helps entering the time.A 7-sement display is interfaced to the microcontroller to display time.

Further the project can be enhanced by interfacing a GSM modem to the existing project so that the complete control of the load can be done by sending an SMS to the control unit.

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:  Which microcontroller is used in this project?

A:  A 40 pin microcontroller from 8051 family is used in this project.

Q:  Can I replace lamp with any other load?

A:  Yes, any electrical load with wattage up to 200W can be used.

Q:  What is RTC?

A:  RTC stands for Real Time Clock. It provides time reference along with memory back up.

Q:  Where is it applicable?

A:  It is applicable in distribution system, Home appliances like geyser etc.

Q:  How can one set the time?

A:  A numeric keypad is provided to set the time

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.
