PLC Application (PLC Controlled Traffic Intersection)
Power Distribution Simulator
The system simulates the conditions encountered in the distribution of electric power from a main power station via a transmission centre to standard users such as residential, commercial and industrial. A second power plant can be put in operation when required at peak demand times. Additionally the power may be exported or imported into the net and faults may be inserted for student's total comprehension. Any parameter can be altered at will and its effect can immediately be seen throughout the grid.
Use this lab to perform power electronics experiments and also use it to investigae power electronics devices and their applications such as in alarm circuits, flashers, rectifiers, choppers, inverters etc

The only Vector Group Clock Notation trainer to investigate the phase shift between high and low voltage windings of a transformer. Using a “Clock Notation” we refer to the standard 12 hour clock face. There are 12 segments in a 360o clock face, each one representing a 30o phase shift. Relating back to the clock notation 1 o-clock is 30 degrees, 2 = 60 degrees, 3 = 90 degrees….12 = 0 degrees or 360 degrees
