Construction of an automated temperature sensing electric fan regulator

J. A. Amusan, E. B. Otokunefor

Abstract


An automated temperature-sensing fan regulator which controls the speed with respect to the sensed temperature, is designed and constructed. This design was implemented with simple and readily available electronics components at the local electric shops. The achieved results and its features when compared with available electric fan indicate that there will be a great demand for the product if it is introduced to the market since everybody cannot afford an air-conditioner due to its high cost.

Key words: Temperature, Fan Regulator, C++ programming, Analogue-to-Digital Converter (ADC), Micro-controller, Relay, Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
