Electrical Engineer Career Episode Sample 1​

Project Name: Battery charger system

This project was titled a “Battery charger system”. The engineering activities that the author did during the project are as below:
 To study and review the mechanics, feasibility, and factors to consider to design the charging system of lead-acid.
To select a component like a resistor, Zener diode, battery for the system development.
 To develop the workflow mechanism and design the battery charger system.
 To design the filter capacitor, bridge rectifier and internal transformer.
 To simulate the designed system using MULTISIM.
 To test and analyze the charging process of the developed system.

Problem & Solutions

Some of the major problems that were encountered by the author during the “Battery charger system” along with their solutions are defined below:-

  1. Problem 1 career episode 2 and its Solution

    During analyzing the circuit charging module author came across some problems regarding the charging module of the circuit. When the input was provided, the very high gain was obtained for the operational amplifier, and the operational amplifier produced the larger output. Due to the large output voltage,  the Zener diode connected to the output terminal of the operational amplifier was not functioning. This resulted in the fluctuation of the circuit.

    After study and research, the author found that there might be a problem regarding the connection between resistance capacity and an operational amplifier. Then the author checked the connection and found that there was no such issue regarding the resistance capacity and amplifier and circuit connection. The author reviewed the limiting process of the output voltage of LM741 and found that using the register from the output of LM741 to the inverting terminal of LM741.

    Then the author calculated the value of the negative feedback of the register and connected the register to the output of LM741 to the inverting terminal of LM741. Furthermore, the circuit performance found that there is a smaller output voltage of LM741 and gain was also decreased.

  1. Problem 2 career episode 2 and its Solution

    The output current and voltage was smaller than the actual voltage when AC to DC conversion took place. When the input signal was 230Vrms to the AC-DC converter, the output was 12v, which was smaller than the actual voltage. So to take necessary steps, the author studied the different research papers and found that the issue might have raised due to the element of AC to DC converter. During the analysis, the author found that the issue was raised due to the transformer. Secondary winding was bigger than the smaller winding, which caused less output voltage.

    To solve this the author calculated the transformer ratio, which was 0.0073. Then, the author changed the primary winding of the transformer and found that the voltage from AC to DC converter was 16Vrms. The output of the AC to DC converter was given to the charging circuit.

  1. Problem 3 career episode 2 and its Solution

    During the simulation, the author faced a problem regarding the input voltage limit. the author found 40v output from the output of the voltage limiting circuit, which was greater than the expected output value.

    The author found that the Zener diode value was greater than the expected value. When the output value of a more zen diode was greater than the actual value, the control transistor Q2 turned on the transistor Q1, the charging circuit disconnected from the input. Then the author changed the Zener diode value as per the calculation. When the output value of a more zen diode was greater than the actual value, the control transistor Q2 turned on the transistor Q1, the charging circuit disconnected from the input. Then the author changed the Zener diode value as per the calculation and found that the voltage limiting value of the circuit was 15v.

Project Name: TRANSFORMER PROTECTION SYSTEM

This project was titled as “TRANSFORMER PROTECTION SYSTEM”. The engineering activities that the author did during the project are as below:
 To study and review the power system and protective method.
 To select the component like microcontroller, relay and step down transformer based on the design of the system.
 To design the hardware and software program for the system model.
 To perform the connection of the components like relay, microcontroller, and transformer for the development of the system.
 To simulate the designed system in Visual basic 6.0 and Proteus software.
To test and analyze the performance of the overall circuit.
 To perform the administration of the whole procurement process for the materials required in the project.
 To inspect, monitor and supervise the activities on the site ensuring they were in accordance with the targeted budget, quality, environmental standards and company regulations.

Problem & Solutions

Some of the major problems that were encountered by the author during the “Transformer protection system” along with their solutions are defined below:-

  1. Problem 1 career episode 2 and its Solution

    Initially, the current sensor sensed the wrong value for the current that leads to isolating the transformer form power lines in normal conditions. So to solve this issue, the author performed research regarding the issues and also consulted the project supervisor. From the research, the author found that the high-value resistor was for a current sensor, which increased voltage drop, and as a result, the power loss increased for the system.

    To solve this issue, a low and appropriate resistor for the circuit was used. Then again, the author tested the voltage value from the current sensing device, but the issue was not solved. So the author further found that the accuracy of the sensor changed due to the use of the high-temperature coefficient resistor. So the author mitigates this problem by using the resistor of low-temperature coefficient and by using low inductance resistor which solved the issue regarding the current sensor.

  1. Problem 2 career episode 2 and its Solution

    Author found a problem regarding the trip coil. The trip coil was not energizing as per the requirement of the system that caused the relay failure.

    To resolve this issue, the author found the mechanism of testing the failure of the relay so that a damaged relay can be found. Using USB controlled tools, the author found the damaged relay by measuring the resistance of the paths between different pins of the system. Then replaced the damaged relay with the new ones. When the fault occurred the relay operated and reclosed itself automatically when the fault cleared. Using this method problem regarding the relay was solved.

  1. Problem 3 career episode 2 and its Solution

    Likewise, author found that the relay encounters a mechanical problem, due to which there was a poor protection.

    To solve the issue regarding the Relay, the author used TRIAC as a member of the THYRISTOR family, which can be used for transformer protection. Due to the absence of the moving part, TRIAC will lead to less maintenance and a longer life span of the transformer. Due to the high load voltage in the transformer, the relay was facing the problem regarding sensing the abnormal condition to solve this issue, author decreased the load voltage of the transformer.

Project Name: INDUCTION MOTOR SPEED CONTROL SYSTEM

This project was titled “INDUCTION MOTOR SPEED CONTROL SYSTEM”. The engineering activities that the author did during the project are as below
 To study and review the speed control mechanism in the induction.
 To select the component like multilevel inverter, induction motor, drives and switching device for the development of the system.
 To design and develop the block diagram and workflow of the system model.
 To design the control unit to control inverter and use AC supply for bridge rectifier.
 To simulate the design system using MATLAB.
 To test and analyze the performance of the system.

Problem & Solutions

Some of the major problems that were encountered by the author during the “INDUCTION MOTOR SPEED CONTROL SYSTEM” along with their solutions are defined below:-

  1. Problem 1 career episode 3 and Solution

    The problem regarding the voltage fluctuation occurred when the load draws periodic variation in the current supply. So, the fluctuating current has developed the fluctuation in the supply voltage. This current has also caused a drop in the voltage of the system. Author also found that the variation in the load has caused the voltage fluctuation in the system along with an issue regarding the harmonic in the AC Supply.

    To solve this problem, author added the small capacitor, so the reactive network power is strengthened and allowed the finer tuning requirements of reactive power. After adding the capacitor, the power factor was enhanced, and the reduction of voltage fluctuation was seen. This method also increased the active power and increased the stability and efficiency of the system.

  1. Problem 2 career episode 3 and Solution

    Ripples were seen in the system when the rectified signal was feed into the controlled multilevel inverter.

    To solve this issue, author used the capacitor, but this resulted in the unexpected output of the system. This issue was raised because of the multilevel inverter or control unit. To solve these issues, a detailed study of the component was performed. author found that during the rectification AC signal was converted into the DC signal, which was not pure because they contained ripples. So the capacitor in the inverter was introduced, but the issue was not solved. After further research, the size of the capacitor also affects the DC Signal and produces ripples. So the size of the capacitor was increased as per the requirement of the system.

  1. Problem 2 career episode 3 and Solution

    There was an issue which was caused due to the series connection of the power devices which was made in order to handle the large voltage and power in the system.

    To solve this issue the device was integrated gate bipolar transistors, gate turns off thyristors and integrated gate commutated transistors. After this adjustment, there was a problem regarding the unequal dissemination of applied voltage across the series-connected device. The author found that due to less blocking voltage compared to the applied voltage that issue occurred. Author rechecked the model and datasheets of all switching devices and transistors and reconnected the component, and these solved the problem regarding the unequal dissemination of applied voltage.
