Abstract

Conventional water heaters store hot water in a cylinder or a tank. Hot water geysers are one of the largest consumers of electrical power in the average domestic household. The project aims to improve the current designs by using minimum power to heat water without jeopardizing the flow rate. The main objective of the project is to design a low power water heater system. The process variable to be controlled is temperature. Flow is another process variable to be monitored during the process. The project requires knowledge from different disciplines. The automatic low power domestic water heater requires the knowledge of thermo fluids, power electronics, and microprocessor programming. The simulation on LABVIEW is done to generate a trend of the system. A plot of the temperature changes will ensure that the operation of the sensor is monitored. The results show the open loop system of the project. The prototype had to be implemented to demonstrate the integration of different circuit that exist in this system, namely the microcontroller circuit and relay circuit. The project was a success.
