The Embedded Technology is now in its prime and the wealth of knowledge available is mind-blowing. Embedded technology plays a major role in integrating the various functions associated with it. This needs to tie up the various sources of the Department in a closed loop system.
This proposal greatly reduces the manpower, saves time and operates efficiently without human interference. This project puts forth the first step in achieving the desired target. With the advent in technology, the existing systems are developed to have in built intelligence.
Automatic power factor correction techniques can be applied to the industries, power systems and also households to make them stable and due to that the system becomes stable and efficiency of the system as well as the apparatus increases. The use of microcontroller reduces the costs.
In the present scenario of technological revolution it has been observed that the power is very precious. The industrialization is primarily increasing the inductive loading. The Inductive loads affect the power factor so the power system looses its efficiency. There are certain organizations developing products and caring R&D work on this field to improve or compensate the power factor. In the present trend the designs are also moving forwards the miniature architecture; this can be achieved in a...
