Temperature determines the survival of all natural creatures and as well the operational fitness of all scientific invention, it is quite important to every aspect of human endeavor and its control is as important as the temperature itself.
This research work centers its study on temperature and its control with a view of designing and implementing a reliable computerized system that will automatically contribute in temperature control.
The new system will be able to automatically detect temperature within a particular environment at a particular time and be able to give the desired output concerning the aim of its development. The new system pivots its temperature on room temperature, controlling the regulation of the room air conditioning system for good up- keep of the habitants. The new system can as well be used in other areas of temperature control by adjusting the target point of the design.
Every living and non-living things thrived on a particular temperature within a particular environment at a particular time. Temperature is a concept that cannot easily be shelved for its importance to man and the thing in its surrounding. The room temperature is convenient for man’s survival, the water temperature is convenient for the survival of fishes and other sea animals, the incubator temperature is convenient for hatching of chick from eggs. This is the same for every other living thing on the face of the earth. The same is also applicable to non-living thing on earth, chemicals, iron etc of different kinds thrives under different temperature.
Due to these facts, there is need for adequate control of temperature in areas where nature is not automatically controlling temperature. For example, chicks can only be hatched in a particular temperature and based on that, the incubator was designed to control the temperature for hatching the eggs of chicks. The incubator makes the temperature steady not to fall low or above the hatching temperature. The same is applicable to almost all manufacturing companies, breweries, seasoning company etc.
Temperature is very important in production of a lot of products and seasoning.
Temperature control requires expertise and accuracy for effectiveness and reliability the computer with its sophisticated feature assuredly can handle the control of temperature.
1.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Temperature control system need to be designed on accuracy with effective reception and detection of environment temperature. This control has to be achieved best without any human intervention.
Ineffective temperature control system cause a lot of damages to the system the procedures it is designed for.
1.2 PURPOSE OF STUDY
The purpose of this study is to design simulation of a personal computerized temperature control system which is built on accuracies, comprehensiveness and which will also be cost effective
The aim of this project work is to design an effective temperature control system, which is computer based and which will provide solution to the inaccuracy of he manual system
The objectives include:
- To design a temperature control system that will be very accurate and effective
- To design a system that will be quite automatic without any human intervention in its control
1.4 SCOPE OF STUDY
This work is to simulate an internal temperature control system for personal temperature control.
In the course of this project work we found it very difficult to lay our hands on material for its development. Time was also a hindrance.
The full implementations of this work will prove computer versatility in every field of human endeavor
