The objective of this work is to study the antimicrobial effect of in-vitro grown leaf extracts of Withania somnifera (L.) against some selected known microorganisms and the use of its constituents present there for the preparation of therapeutic compounds. This is evaluated by using zone of inhibition studies and minimum inhibitory concentration. The microorganisms used include Shigella flexneri, Salmonella typhimurium, Vibrio cholera and Candida parapsilosis. Inhibition zones of plant extracts were compared with standard antibiotics like Neomycin, and Kanamycin. Inhibition zones are revealed by methanol extract which is comparatively more than the ethanol extract. For methanol extract, Salmonella typhimurium shows the highest inhibition zone (25.13±0.52) whereas Vibrio cholera shows the least inhibition zone (21.33±0.53). The same extract shows maximum antimicrobial activity against Salmonella typhimurium followed by Candida parapsilosis and Shigella flexneri. These possibilities can build-up a novel idea in the preparation of pharmaceutical products.

This study made setups that can be used in solar powered drying of washed clothing. This was used to analyze and test the performance, and determined if there is significant difference on the drying rate of set ups related to traditional and experimental method. A solar drying chamber was designed to use local materials in which the frame is made of bamboo with walls made of plastic to trap the heat of the sunlight entering the chamber. There were four set ups that were established in the gathering of data: S-1 is with electric fan, S-2 is with electric fan and electric flat iron, S-3 which did not use the drying chamber, is a traditional method where the garments C-1, C-2, C-3, C-4 & C-5 of different sizes, shapes, width and weight were dried under the heat of the sun. S-4 is almost similar to S-3 but the difference is that the garments were dried with no sunlight. The drying chamber alone is effective to reduce the moisture content of the garments using sunlight. Using the electric fan and electric flat iron increased the circulation of the enclosed hot air and boasted the drying capacity. Although it was computed that P > ? in comparison of the data in all set ups, it is insufficient to conclude that there is no significant difference on data of the experimental and traditional set ups since the data for the traditional set ups are not complete until the garments are totally dried.

The digital simulation and execution of PMSG based wind turbine a long with QB Converter and SVM Inverter in a closed loop is presented. The closed loop is realized using Proportional Integral (PI) and Fractional Order Proportional Integral (FOPI) controllers. Initially, the AC power from PMSG wind turbine is converted to DC using bridge rectifier. The DC output from the rectifier is then boosted to the required level using quadratic boost converter. The output from QB converter is then fed to the SVM inverter. The closed loop investigations are carried with PI and FOPI controllers. The simulation results of both PI and FOPI controlled QBC are compared. The outcome of FOPI controller represents that the steady state error and settling time are reduced when compared to PI-controlled closed loop quadratic boost converter.

The human respiratory system mainly consists of four parts namely trachea, main bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli respectively. The alveoli in the lungs are responsible for the transfer of oxygen and carbon-dioxide through capillaries blood vessels leading to the pulmonary vein. A person cannot breathe properly during Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) due to abnormal transfer of oxygen and carbon-dioxide. Artificial ventilation is recommended for a person who suffers from COPD with no breathing or abnormal breathing, to manually preserve intact brain function. So, the blood oxygen level required for the person should be continuously monitored using pulse oximeter and controlled automatically using artificial ventilation. Hence, in this paper human respiratory system is modelled as analogies electrical model by using RLC parameters. The analogous electrical model parameters are represented as resistance, inheritance and compliance respectively. Using this analogous electrical model of human respiratory system, time domain and stability analysis are performed to identify COPD condition.

Fireworks are a class of low explosive pyrotechnic devices used for aesthetic and entertainment purposes. In our project, we automate the fuse insertion process of the Chinese cracker (Bhijili). In India, the fuse insertion is done by handmade process. Due to handmade process, it creates serious health problems to the labours and it requires more labour, consumes more time. So, we planned to implement this process in a “PLC based automatic machine”. In which we combined Piercing, Dipping and Fuse Insertion. In reference of cracker manufacturing in China, they already had automatic fuse insertion, but they have a different procedure (chemical filling is done after the fuse insertion) compared to our country’s procedure, fuse is inserted after chemical filling. In our automation, we sequence the process of piercing and fuse insertion in an automatic manner. Advantage of our project are, increases productivity, reduced lead time, elimination of setup time, reduce the cost, fewer accident. For an emergency safety to the human and the surroundings, we use the fireball (mono ammonium phosphate) for the occasional fire accident which reduces the concentration of the blast in a few seconds.

The non-traditional machining of particulate reinforced metal matrix composites is relatively new. This paper covers studies on match inability of aluminium - Boron carbide metal matrix composites (Al-B4C MMCs) with abrasive water jets (AWJs). Two different compositions of Al-B4C MMCs were processed with various mesh size, abrasive flow rate, transverse rate and water pressure with a view to identify the performance of the abrasive water jet machine for effective processing of MMCs with AWJs. The maximum penetration ability of AWJs in different MMCs was examined by conducting the experiments on trapezoidal shaped Al-B4C MMC specimens, prepared with stir casting method. Optical micrographs of MMC samples and scanning electron microscopic (SEM) examination of AWJ cut surfaces enabled to explain the trends of material removal by the abrasives. Analysis of results clearly indicated the choice of 80 mesh size abrasives, higher water pressure and flow rate and lower transverse rate for effective processing of Al-B4C MMCs with AWJs.

In modern days, people are getting too busy in their works but still they need to spend time in shopping malls. In Shopping malls, customers face a difficulty to follow a queue for the process of billing, which takes a long time under huge crowd. Customer thought that, to avoid the standing time in the billing section at shopping malls. To overcome the above problems, we emerged the Bascart system. To increase the pace of a billing process, RFID tags in products, then the product is read by the barcode scanner which describes the cost of that product and is displays on the LCD screen attached in our shopping list. As customer buy their exact product its price is add on the previous list. The cost of the product is displayed on the LCD screen by using microcontroller through Zigbee Communication from host PC. Zigbee supports bidirectional communication between microcontroller and host PC. We have proposed the Weighing Sensor for the purpose of checking the weight of the items and it is directly stored in the server database. Customer get direct bill at the billing section which is already stored at host PC which automatically reduces the queue. Then GSM Module in our system is used to detect the Geo-position of the customer’s mobile for the process of intimating the shopping details of the customer through messages which is already updated in database.

The main objective is to produce an electro spun mat from ardil fibers in combination with polyvinyl alcohol which can be used for medical applications. Ardil fibers are the fibers extracted from the protein obtained from the defatted oil cake of groundnut. The inherent anti-microbial activity of ground nut allows the use of ardil fibers for medical applications. Since ardil fibbers are not capable of forming fibers of its own by electro spinning, they are used in blend with polyvinyl alcohol. Polyvinyl alcohol is chosen mainly because of its biocompatibility, biodegradability and non-toxicity. The electro spun mat produced from ardil and polyvinyl alcohol was checked for anti-microbial activity so that it can be used for medical applications and X-ray diffraction was seen to check the presence of proteins which was absolute. Other test such as moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) and thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) were also conducted to check whether the produced electro spun mat can be used for the required end use. MVTR is checked to check the breathability of the mat and control of moisture. The MVTR is between the acceptance levels which can be used for medical applications. TGA is to check absorption and adsorption. From the results obtained from different results, it is obvious that the produced mat can be used for medical applications.

In this paper, restructuring of monopolistic power systems is inevitable in this day and age to cope up with the radical growth of power demand. In developed countries restructuring is already in place while developing countries are getting accustomed to it. Above and beyond the benefits to customers in terms of economy and quality, there are several challenges prevailing particularly in transmission while exercising deregulation. The foremost challenging task of Independent System Operator (ISO) is managing the transmission line congestion in a deregulated power system. In most of the congestion management techniques, only the economic aspects are considered. The minimum voltage derivation for electronic industries and acceptable voltage derivation for high power applications are considered with suitable weighting factors in the objective function.

The electronic industry is the largest and fastest growing manufacturing industry in the world. Electronic waste or E-waste is one of the emerging problems in developed and developing countries. Most of these e-wastes are ending up in dumping yards and recycling centers, posing a new challenge to the environment and policy makers as well. Toxic metals in the E-waste are usually non -biodegradable and they will create harmful long lasting negative consequences on the environment in general and our health particular. Currently E-waste is treated by chemical leaching, it gives more environmental issues due to usage of inorganic chemicals in treatment process. So that, the E-waste can be used for extraction of metals by the process of biological leaching. It is the process of extraction of metal from source by using biological organism. In this process involve numerous ferrous iron and sulfur oxidizing bacteria, acidophilic bacteria which is grown in acid medium. The acid mine drainage (AMD) is the outflow of acidic water from metal mines or coal mines. AMD is recognized as one of the most serious environmental problem in the mining industry. It is also toxic and difficult to managing this water. Due to the presence of sulphide metal in the ore, which is released after the mining process, will react with atmosphere and water forms sulphuric acid which poses potential harm to the environment and eco system. This acid medium is most suitable for the development of acidophilic bacteria’s. In this project, the Acidophilic bacteria in AMD can be suggested for process of recycling in biological leaching of electronic waste. This process can be used for both bioleaching of E-waste and management of mining waste water. The process will suppress the harmfulness in both E-waste and waste mining water.

This paper is aimed at reviewing the application of biological extracts from plants, fungi and bacteria in the synthesis of metal/metal oxide nanoparticles with reference to Ag and TiO2 nanoparticles as a case study. The procedures for the extraction of the biological extracts as well as the chemical instrumentation analysis of the extracts and metal/metal oxide nanoparticles were explained in this review. It was reported that standard chemical test confirms the presence of tannins, alkanoids, flavonoids and terpenoids in various plant extracts, while FTIR characterization of various biological extracts confirms the presence of organic compounds as a capping and reducing agents in the biosynthetic process for the preparation of the nanoparticles. The use of other instrumental techniques such as FESEM, XRD, SEM, EDX, TEM and UV-Visible spectroscopy in the characterization of biosynthesized metal/metal oxide nanoparticles were also explained in this review.
