Induction Motor Speed Control Using TV Remote
This project aims at driving an induction motor in forward and backward direction wirelessly for specific applications. For instance, the project can be used to rotate an exhaust fan in both directions.
Here a squril cage induction motor is used to describe the process in clockwise and anticlockwise direction. The direction is controlled using a TV remote. On pressing a button, the TV remote transmits an IR signal in RC5 code to IR receiver (TSOP-1738). The receiver receives the signal and sends an output to microcontroller of 8051 family. A relay driver IC is interfaced with microcontroller that switches in by-stable mode for split-phase induction motor to rotate in both directions.
