Design and simulation of a weather activated window system

Abstract

This paper presents the design and implementation of a Weather Activated Window System. A weather activated window system is a weather (temperature, humidity and wind) operated system that open or closes a window depending on the status of the atmospheric weather. This system compares a weather condition with a predefined weather condition. However, in this work, our results are based on temperature using temperature sensor to sense the atmospheric temperature and compares it with the predefined temperature. The system closes the window at a temperature less than 19 degree Celsius and open the window for any temperature greater than 19 degree Celsius. The reference temperature was set using a variable resistor via a comparator. The variable resistor is used to set one’s preference temperature. A 5V DC power supply was designed in order to provide a biasing voltage to most of the active devices used in the system design circuit. The DC power supply was designed and simulated using Multisim software. The testing and simulation of the circuit design was done in Proteus environment. The system was simulated and working according to the design specifications. © Research India Publications.
