Computerized Speed Measurement Technique using Magnetic Pickup Sensor

Abstract

Speed measurements are very important task according to the large use ofmotors, generators and other rotating devices. Also for the high speed ofrotation other than speed is a function of many other variables such asacceleration and speed etc….This project helps to measure the speed of electrical machines which isvery difficult to be measured directly.The computer is used to measure the speed in revolution per minute(RPM) or revolution per second (RPS), very accurately by using a suitablecircuit which is formed from, sensor, special designed electronic circuit andinterface card (Hardware) with a built program (Software) to treat the data andto give the measured speed in a digital system.
