Abstract: An enormous number of motors have been using in our daily life ranging from home appliances to industrial machinery. During the last decade, there has been tremendous change industry automation and home automation. Electric motor is always the essential part in home appliances as well as industrial applications in the automation. There is always a need to control the speed of the motor to run the appliances smoothly. Other important part of the appliances is the microcontroller. Microcontroller is always the essential part in all the embedded system applications because of its economical price and easy to customize to any specific need. Electronic devices like thyristors, diodes have been widely used in industrial applications to control the speed of the motor The Objective of this paper is to control the induction motor speed by using triac and zero crossing detector. Usually in many industrial applications speed varying is important to run the process in different stages, this paper demonstrates the mechanism of varying the speed of the AC Motor. The circuit is equipped with microcontroller and the induction motor. Induction motor is controlled by using triac and zero crossing detector by controlling the pulses of input AC signal. Microcontroller input is connected with two input modules that is one increment switch and one decrement switch. Increment switch is used to increase the speed of motor by varying in steps that is already dumped the code in microcontroller and also same for decrement switch. An LCS screen has been used to display the speed of the motor. Touch screen is used to operate the motor.
Keywords: Microcontroller, LCD screen, Rectifier, PWM, Embedded systems, AC Motor, Triac, Zero Crossing detector.
