RC Helicopter

In the past I have discussed Project Ideas related to RC Planes and Cars, Yesterday I received a mail asking me about information related to RC Helicopters.These helicopters also known as Radio Controlled Helicopters.They are toys which can be controlled using remote control.Building them help us to understand the concepts of real helicopters and their flying.This project is for Mechanical , Aeronautical and Physics students.

Solar Powered Air Conditoner

Air conditioners are both cause and solution of global warming, due to rise in temperature in recent years, it becomes necessary for each one of us to have air conditioner. It has become very important part of our life in recent years. The only problem is that it consumes great amount of electricity which results is more global warming.

One of the best solution of above problem is air conditioner which do not use electricity generated by pollution generating fuel, instead use something renewable and unconventional. One of the example for that is Solar Powered Air conditioner which takes its power from solar.Solar air conditioning refers to any air conditioning (cooling) system that uses solar power.

This project is part of solar project ideas and can be used by students of Mechanical  or Electronics engineering. Even students of Physics would find it interesting.If this project is implemented with Passive Solar Design , it would be more effective.

Electronic Valve Actuator

An actuator is a mechanical device for moving or controlling a mechanism or system. It is operated by a source of energy, usually in the form of an electric current, hydraulic fluid pressure or pneumatic pressure, and converts that energy into some kind of motion.Actuators are used for the automation of industrial valves and can be found in all kinds of technical process plants: they are used in waste water treatment plants, power plants and even refineries.

Design of single phase induction motor drive

An induction motor or asynchronous motor is a type of alternating current motor where power is supplied to the rotor by means of electromagnetic induction. When I was searching for this project, I found report of Wisconsin University students on Design consideration for single phase induction motor with complete details and analysis.

Sun Tracker Project

Solar energy is the most powerful resource that can be used to generate power. So far the efficiency of generating power of solar energy is relatively low. Thus, how to increase the efficiency of generating power of solar energy is very important.

According to Wiki A solar tracker is a generic term used to describe devices that orient various payloads toward the sun. Payloads can be photovoltaic panels, reflectors, lenses or other optical devices.It is used to minimize the angle of incidence between the incoming light and a photo voltaic panel. This increases the amount of energy produced from a fixed amount of installed power generating capacity.

This project idea is for students of Mechanical and Electronics engineering. Moreover , students of MIT have won prize for the same.Cleveland State University students has done project on sun tracker in 2008.

Fluid Mechanics Projects

Fluid mechanics is the study of fluids and the forces on them. Fluids are liquids, gases, and plasmas. It influences everything from aircraft and car performance to blood flow and breathing.Most of fluid mechanics projects depend on formula v1p1/t1 = v2p2/t2, which states that pressure and volume are inversely proportional while temperature is inversely proportional to both . Wayne State university has one page dedicated to word files(downloadable) related to fluid mechanics.Most processes that converts energy from one form to another depends heavily on fluid mechanics

On the Website of Technical University of Denmark, they have discussed an assortment of projects connected to it. If some of you are interested in demonstration than you can visit Wolfram website Demonstrations.

Fluid mechanics projects attract sponsors too. This field is very pertinent for Automobile, Aircraft and Space research organizations. Moreover , list of IIT Madras sponsored projects  proves my point.
