Proposed Ideas:
For the above said problem following solutions are proposed1. Off Delay Timer Circuit - 29 -

2. Sensor Based System 3. Manual System These solutions are explained in detail as following-

1. Off Delay Timer Circuit:


In this system an Off Delay Timer is made using IC-555 and this is used to control a relay which in turn controls the various electrical equipments. The following Flow chart shows the plan.

Block Diagram:

Limiting Switch

Delay Timer Circuit

Relay

Power Equipments

Contactor coil

Working:
According to this plan a limiting switch senses the entry of cowl in the paint booth and sends a trigger signal to the off

- 30 -

delay timer circuit. Limiting switch is of Pushbutton type so after the entry of cowl the off delay timer starts its count down. After a predetermined time the timer goes off which is controlling a relay so relay turns off which turn off the equipments connected to it through contactor coil. Thus the equipments of Paint touchup Zone are turned off after a predefined time after cowl entry. This circuit keeps off until another cowl comes in the zone.

Merits:
Simple and Cheap construction of system Large saving of power Fully automatic System

Demerits:
Installation is Difficult Timing not very accurate

- 31 -

2. Sensor Based System:


In this system sensors are employed at entry and exit of the paint zone which gives triggering signal to a switching circuit which turns on and off a relay on receiving trigger signals from sensors which in turn controls the various electrical equipments. The following Flow chart shows the plan.

Block Diagram:

Entry Sensor

Switching Circuit

Exit Sensor

Relay

Power Equipments

Contactor coil

Working:
According to this plan input and output sensors are used. When a cowl comes in the booth the input sensor sends signal to switching circuit which turns on a relay and on exit the exit sensor senses the cowl exit and sends trigger to switch off relays. Thus power is on only for the period when it is being used to paint.

Merits:
Large saving of power Fully automatic System

Demerits:

- 32 -

booth

Costly system On busy days frequent ON-Off can cause breakdown of equipments Interference due to workers passing through

3. Manual Operation:
A very simple and basic solution of our problem is that the worker manually switches off the equipments from electrical panel but this is not very suitable because its not automated and increases strain on workers.

Merits:
Large saving of power No additional cost

Demerits:
Not automatic Increased burden on workers Safety Threat

- 33 -

Selection of best alternative:


In above explained proposals the Selection of best alternative is done on the basis of effectiveness of system and applicability. The most suitable alternative is selected to be the Delay Timer based system because Its cheap and simple to construct Helps to save considerable amount of power

Solution Development:
According to our need an OFF Delay Timer Controlled Relay based system is developed. The entry of cowl in booth is sensed by an pushbutton limiting switch and the trigger signal is sent to an off delay timer circuit which starts its countdown as soon as cowl enters the booth. After a predetermined time the timer goes off and turns off all equipments. The suitable delay time is selected to be around 5 minutes by interaction with workers and technicians as well as considering fatigue to equipments. Thus following circuit is developed.

Closer View Benefits Achieved:


The plan for automation of Equipments of Paint Touchup Zone has the sole purpose of saving electricity being wasted. The following study shows how much energy could be saved by this projectAverage number of cowls in an fair day Total ON time per shift mins. 3.5 hrs. Energy consumed per shift with our system 190.72 = 667.52 kWh Energy consumed per shift without our system = 0 8 x 190.72 = 1525.76 kWh = 3.5 x = 40 = 200 System on Time per cowl through our system = 5 mins.

Total energy saving per shift = 1525.76 667.52 = 858.24 kWh Thus our system offers a energy saving upto 56% which is very good for company as well as environment.

SUMMARY
The sole motive of this four weeks project training is to give an idea what a real industry is all about and getting training in such an esteemed organization is definitely a thing to be proud of. I got the chance to learn much more than I expected before I came here. In my training I learnt how to plan the activities regarding different work and develop the techniques to solve the problem. I also learnt the power of team work that how onerous tasks can be accomplished easily with the help of team work. By working in the Cowl shop, I learnt about the different processes which are being carried out in the Cowl line and more specifically about the Electrical and Electronic Systems used in industry, sensors and controllers, safety systems, automation etc. During training I was given a project to develop an Automatic ON-OFF System for various electrical equipments of Paint Touchup Zone which were kept ON continuously during whole shift causing lots of wastage of energy. I have designed,

- 41 -

developed and built an Auto On-OFF system for the Paint Zone. The system designed by me saves upto 56% of energy. Apart from the allotted project, I also learnt a lot about Organizational Culture.
