  • Induction motors at light load run at low power factor and low efficiency. But  if  the  stator  supply  voltage  is  reduced  at  light  load  condition,  both the  efficiency  and  power  factor  can  be  improved  owing  to  reduction  in magnetizing  current  and  core  loss.  The  proposed  energy  saver  is  a thyristorized  phase  control  working  in  feed  back  mode.

  • Diabetes is a chronic disorder characterized by abnormal blood glucose levels due to problems associated with insulin production and action. When glucose levels rise too high, diabetes becomes dangerous. Without medical care, it can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke and in late stages can cause blindness, kidney failure and loss of limbs.
