8,300.00 5,500.00

This project is intended to attain AC dimmer of two loads using single controller. It is a renowned and aged technique of managing AC power, principally across linear loads for instance heaters brought into play in electric oven.
In this project, we are using a comparator for zero crossing detection which is fed as an interrupt to the arduino UNO3. Here, the arduino delivers the output based on the interrupt received as the reference for generating triggering pulses. Using these pulses, we drive the Opto-isolators for triggering the TRIAC to achieve integral cycle control as per the input switches interfaced to the arduino. In place of a linear load to be used in the output, a series motor or lamp can be used to verify the output. A lamp is provided in this project in place of a motor for demonstration purpose. The project output with a lamp appears to be a simple project of lamp flickering but the real objective is to verify in a CRO/DSO ,whether at the random switching also the load switches on at zero cross of the waveform or not.

Description

This project is intended to attain AC dimmer of two loads using single controller. It is a renowned and aged technique of managing AC power, principally across linear loads for instance heaters brought into play in electric oven.

In this project, we are using a comparator for zero crossing detection which is fed as an interrupt to the arduino UNO3. Here, the arduino delivers the output based on the interrupt received as the reference for generating triggering pulses. Using these pulses, we drive the Opto-isolators for triggering the TRIAC to achieve integral cycle control as per the input switches interfaced to the arduino. In place of a linear load to be used in the output, a series motor or lamp can be used to verify the output. A lamp is provided in this project in place of a motor for demonstration purpose. The project output with a lamp appears to be a simple project of lamp flickering but the real objective is to verify in a CRO/DSO ,whether at the random switching also the load switches on at zero cross of the waveform or not.

The power supply consists of a step-down transformer 230/12V, which steps down the voltage to 12V AC. This is converted to a DC using a Bridge rectifier. The ripples are removed using a capacitive filter, and it is then regulated to +5V using a voltage regulator 7805, which is required for the operation of the arduino and other components.

Furthermore, this project can be enriched by using a feedback mechanism to automatically maintain the desired output to the load by appropriate cycle stealing.
