Design and simulation of radio frequency based overheat alarm system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study presents fire detection (overheat) alarm system designed for Morupule Power Station in Palapye, Botswana. The company use fire extinguishers, but this extinguishers are not working as intended. So, in case of fire outbreak, the company has no any system for fire detection which alert before the fire outbreak. Also, all workshops, laboratories, offices and transformers are lacking fire detection systems. The designed and simulated system is based on Radio Frequency (RF) transmission. The system was designed using Proteus and Multisim Software. In the Proteus, an RF transmitter and receiver was used and each part powered separately using a 5 VDC supply as they are separated apart. Thus, by designing an overheat detection and alerting system which detects heat in case of fire outbreak, we can safeguard the whole power station and hence, save cost of repairs of damaged equipment or buildings due to fire outbreak. The system was simulated and working according to the design specifications.
