## Introduction to Genetic Algorithm (GA)

Genetic Algorithm (GA) Genetic Algorithm has turned out to be excellent optimization tool. It does not require an exact mathematical model of the physical system. Furthermore, speed and robustness are prominent properties of this scheme. The proposed design strategy for optimizing the transformer core parameters is based on GA. It is a stochastic search algorithm […]

## Mathematics Matrix Manipulation in MATLAB

This article is simplest guide for matrix manipulation in MATLAB which a programmer need for a regular work. Everything is treated as a matrix in MATLAB. Ex- a=1; which is a scalar means a matrix of one row and one column which contains the element ‘1’. You can read this in article an introduction to MATLAB Matrix […]

## HOW TO MANIPULATE GRAPHS IN MATLAB

Basics of Plotting Graphs in MATLAB In this article we will see that how commands like plot, stem, subplot, xlabel, ylabel, title, plot, stem, subplot, axis, plot3, colour, linewidth, hold and legend are used in Plotting graphs in MATLAB. ( if you are new to MATLAB, first check this article to learn basics of MATLAB) Introduction to […]

## Filter Inductor Design

Design Calculations for Filter Inductor Design Calculations for filter inductor of ferrite core will be explained here. These inductors are common and essential part of power electronic converter circuits. Main objective of inductor in converter circuits is to eliminate unnecessary harmonics in circuit to get smooth output. As in power electronic devices switching is very […]

## ARDUINO UNO TIMER AND INTERRUPTS

Arduino indeed is a magical thing for a lot of people owing to the amazing and extraordinary thing this little board can do. Just when we believe we have figured all of its secrets we discover something new and today we are going to learn Arduino Uno Timer Interrupts. The Timer is nothing but a […]

## Tachometer Using Arduino and Hall Effect Sensor

Introduction to Tachometer In this project we will make a tachometer using Arduino. It is a device which is used to measure the RPM (revolution per minutes) of rotating objects like a shafts or wheels etc. This project differ from other projects present around web as it uses a Hall Effect sensor rather an IR […]
