Induction Motor Conditional Monitoring Using Wireless Sensor Network
This system is used for monitoring the speed, torque, efficiency, voltage & current by employing ZigBee based wireless sensor network. Embedded system is used for acquiring electrical signals from the motors in a non-invasive way. The speed and torque estimation is done locally. An embedded system is used to control the speed of the motor the values calculated by the embedded system are transmitted to the monitoring unit through ZigBee based wireless sensor network and it can be monitored locally in PC. The main advantages of using ZigBee are low maintenance cost, security, reliability and through output. Using simulation, the characteristic graph for speed, torque, output voltage and output current can be obtained.
