Investigators from Hunan University Have Reported New Data on Electrical Engineering (Design of Intelligent Low-voltage Load Switch for Remote Control System In Smart Grid)

Engineering Daily News

2021 JUN 09 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Engineering Daily News -- Investigators publish new report on Engineering - Electrical Engineering. According to news originating from Changsha, People’s Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “Current low-voltage load switches do not support remote disconnect/connect and real-time monitoring of a disconnect/connect state. Addressing to these issues, this paper presents a low-voltage load switch for a smart remote control system, which uses a one-chip microcontroller board and a DC step motor drive mechanism and provides the feedback on the switch status also.”

Financial supporters for this research include State Grid Corporation of Science and Technology Innovation Project, China, China Postdoctoral Science Foundation, National Key R&D Program of China.

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Hunan University, “Arrears disconnect and full-pay connect control is implemented via the microcomputer and Hall sensor. The low-power supply and state feedback circuit are designed to reduce the power consumption. And the motor drive mechanism is optimized to improve the performance of motor. Finally, a test environment includes the system control and feedback is created to illustrate the feasibility of the designed low-voltage switch.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “The test results that the design supports disconnect/connect control and state feedback in various conditions validate the feasibility of this designed system, which has high practical value and is worthy of promotion.”

This research has been peer-reviewed.
