In this paper a simple power and frequency control scheme is proposed for high power/high frequency Induction heating for Typical Heavy Industrial Applications like Induction Welding & Annealing which require operating on 100 kW / 100 kHz. The Proposed PI controller controls the load parameter values of R and L and thereby controls the resonance frequency of the whole model.
The control scheme has the advantages of not only wide power regulation range but also ease of control output power.
Also, it can achieve the stable and efficient Zero-Voltage-Switching in whole load range. The proposed method is described in detail and its validity is verified through simulink model. The model achieves proper power control for load ranging from 80 kW to 100kw.

Background/Objectives: The basic idea of the project is to make the helmet so smart that without wearing it the driver won’t be able to start the bike, so that it can ensure the safety of the riders. The main purpose of the project is to encourage wearing helmet.
Method: The system design will be such that without wearing the helmet the rider cannot start two wheelers. The helmet will be connected to vehicle key ignition systems which will be electronically controlled. The smart helmet will be having micro switches fitted inside it, which will act as our switch for on/off ignition. It consist of a RF transmitter and an RF receiver system, the bike will not get started without wearing helmet by the driver, as the rider wear helmet an RF signals radiate from the transmitter and once these RF signals get sensed by the receiver placed in the ignition switch on the bike, bike will get started.
Findings: People prefer motorcycles over the car as it is much cheaper to run, easier to repair, easier to park and flexible in traffic. In India more than 37 million people are using two wheelers. Since usage is high accident percentage of two wheelers are also high compared to four wheelers. Motorcycles have a higher rate of fatal accidents than trucks and buses. According to Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Government of India there are around 1,44,391 bike accidents occurred in 2015 due to which 1,35,343 were injured and 36,803 were killed. Fatal injuries to the brain are an important reason behind deaths due to the road accidents. Therefore, a person riding a two wheeler must wear a helmet in order to protect his skull. Studies show that usage of helmet can save accident death by 30 to 40 percent. The risk of death is 2.5 times more among riders not wearing a helmet compared with those wearing a helmet. Riders wearing a helmet have a greater probability of survival during an accident. This project aims for accident avoidance, safety and security of bike riders.
Applications: This can be used to minimize the accidents and casualties during riding can be used in broadcasting a message among the youth about the road safety and also a number of cases of violating traffic rules can be reduced.

Link quality based Ant based Routing Algorithm (LARA) in MANETs
Recently a new method is developed to handle the problem of routing in ad hoc network and overcomes the shortcomings of the classical methods; these methods are based on swarm intelligence inspired from biological swarms, such as ants in order to solve some complex problems such as finding food or optimizing route to food in real insect swarms. One of the most known routing algorithms for MANETs, as described Ant based Routing Algorithm (ARA) suffers from some limitations within the pheromone computing since it has not taken the necessary consideration to the characteristics of MANETs such as mobility and the medium constraint. Therefore, in our proposed enhancement to ARA called Link quality based ARA (LARA), it can be included the link quality in route selection and probability computing which have considerably improved the network performance and the system lifetime.

In the past recruitment application forms were filled on papers by the candidates and then the filled forms were sent to the recruitment organization through postal services. But in current scenario most of the recruitment organizations are providing the facility of filling application forms online to the candidates. The candidate fills various application forms on regular basis due to higher degree of unemployment. It takes quite long to fill an application form as so many information like name, father’s name, mother’s name, date of birth, gender, addresses, qualification details, work experience has to be filled by candidate every time while filling the application forms of each recruitment organization. Sometimes the candidate has to fill the same information multiple times due to improper internet connectivity. It is also difficult to fill an application form using mobile because of the complex application interface. The applicants who have good computer knowledge may be comfortable with the filling of such complex forms online but it is very tedious task for a candidate having little knowledge of computer. In this research paper we propose a system that will import the common information of an applicant from a centralized database while filling recruitment application forms of various organizations. It will minimize the overheads of filling online application form. The applicants will be able to fill application form by a single click on import button available on the GUI interface of an online application form. The applicants who have basic knowledge of computer system will also be able to fill their recruitment application forms using proposed system.
Methods/Statistical analysis: We feel the problem personally while filling online recruitment application forms. Every time the candidates have to fill the same set of information which is time consuming.
Findings: The common information of the candidates can be stored in a centralized database from which the candidate can import his/her data while filling online application forms.
Improvements/Applications: We have proposed a system for filling of common information of candidates in online application form using a centralized database which contains common information of candidates. Using the system we can save our time by importing of common information from the centralized database

The food, cloths & houses are the basic needs of pupils. There are a number of people in the world were those living below poverty lines. They have not proper food to eat, clothes to cover their bodies and homes to live. The government is felicitating the poor and needy peoples in a number of ways. Indian government provides different types of RASHAN CARDS to the Indian families on the basis of various annual incomes i.e BPL, APL, KhadyaSuraksha cards to avail them basic foods. There are so many schemes to provide economic help to construct their homes like Indira AawasYogana. Besides these there are various schemes to provide employments to the poor people for their survival. In this research paper, we proposed a scheme/system that felicitates the need of cloth, shoes to the poor & needy peoples of any age of uttarakhand in initial stage & for the other states in further stages. Using the proposed system we collect unused/old cloth, shoes from capable (rich) peoples as a donation and after processing (tailoring, washing & packaging) distribute them to the needy peoples on a regular basis. The system will specially concentrate on children, woman of villages & be free from caste, region, religion.
Methods/Statistical analysis: We collect the data from the villages of uttarakhand. A lot of poor people are not capable to buy sufficient cloths for them or for their children. We find the same situation in the rural area of Uttar Pradesh (U.P) also.
Findings: Although the government is facilitating food, houses to the poor & needy peoples still there is a need of cloths to the poor peoples of the India, especially in the rural area. The proposed scheme will contribute to the betterment of society.
Improvements/Applications: We have proposed a scheme for felicitation of cloth. The model is shown in below mentioned figure.

Brain tumor is a one of the severe life altering disease and analysis of brain imaging is a most important task of visualizing the brain inner anatomical structures, analyzing brain tumor and surgical planning. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is used to diagnose a variety of diseases in the brain and it is found to be much superior to other techniques especially for brain tissues. The main advantage is that the soft tissue differentiation is extremely high for MRI. Image processing plays vital role in medical image analysis and Image segmentation is a most conman technique for analysis of MR imaging in many clinical applications. The parallel segmentation methods and techniques are expressed for the automatic detection of tumor in multimodal brain MR Image by existing state-of-art methods. However the specific results are not being projected and established in the similar researches. Hence, this proposed work tackles about automatic segmentation and detection of tumor in multimodal brain MR images. The main aim of the proposed work to achieve high segmentation accuracy and detection of tumor in the multimodal brain MR images and it was demonstrated in multimodal brain MR Images, viz. FLAIR MRI, T1 MRI, MRI and T2 MRI. The relative performance of the Proposed Method is demonstrated over existing methods using real brain MRI and open brain MRI data sets.

The study surveyed the use of the Internet and social networking media as digital dividend among undergraduate students in Nigerian Polytechnic. A total of 700 questionnaires were distributed using a frequency count and percentage to select the respondents. A total of 527 questionnaires was retrieved were used for the survey. The findings revealed a high percentage use Internet and social networking media. The access point for them is mobile phones. The institution, though linked to the Internet is yet to provide access to students. Respondents subscribed for the access time through their pocket money. The use of the Internet among the students has affected the use of the school library because they claimed they got everything they needed to get in the library from the internet. Some problems they face in their use of the Internet include slowness of the server, electricity for charging their mobile phones and payment for the access time. The study recommends that the polytechnic should provide good access points for students and make it available in the library too.

Security has become a major issue everywhere. Home security is becoming necessary nowadays as the possibilities of intrusion are increasing day by day. A traditional home security system gives the signals regarding alarm or text alert through GSM. However, this paper proffers, also, a reprogrammable system that puts forward phone call straightway to the recipient anywhere in the world with GSM network coverage SIM800L (GSM Module) with PIC12F1840 Microcontroller and a motion sensor or detector.

UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), especially Quad copters is facing challenges in their mission due to its lower endurance. As such, the missions having long distances are not achievable through Quad copters.
The performance of any vehicle, while testing, is one of the most important factors. This performance is based on range, endurance, altitude, attitude control, VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing), battery life, and other autonomous functionalities. The major problem we are facing in the field of UAVs is battery life. The use of higher mAh battery is not a perfect solution as the weight also increases with the size of the battery and that will then require once level higher mAh battery and this may not end soon.
Several different techniques can be applied to eliminate or reduce the above drawback. One can be, in the mission path itself, take the drone down to the ground, change its battery and continue the mission, which is a kind of out of logic things. The other solution which we can find is the use of a charging dock. In this case, no need to follow the vehicle, everything can be automatic with the help of a sensor and communication system.
The above solution ends the endurance problem but, if the endurance is higher and mission is longer, it necessary to put on necessary sensors for the safety of the vehicle.

Energy consumption for cooking is unavoidable, though there is continuously increasing the fuel price as well as scarcity of exhausting fossil fuels. Because cooking is the prime priority of human life all over the world. Cooking contributes a major part in sharing of total primary energy consumption in India. Hence it needs an alternative energy source for this purpose. Solar cookers are the best substitute for, heating, cooking and pasteurizing applications. In this paper a review has been made to study the existing literature in the field of solar cookers with the latent heat storage system using PCM.

Background: The deformed targets and its orientation with collision axis of the projectile and the target in the nuclear fusion reaction influence the fusion cross-section.
Statistical Analysis: The effects of static quadrupole and hexadecapole deformation of target are studied using various proximity potentials in the literature. Accordingly, the height and the position of the Coulomb interaction barrier for 18O+118Sn (deformed target) system is studied in this paper.
Findings: The nucleus-nucleus potential was found to depend strongly on the deformation parameters as well as the orientation of the deformed target. The fusion cross section of the mentioned system was found out by applying parameters of the various proximity potential on the Wong’s formula. Also the result of a multi dimensional barrier penetration model (BPM) was assessed using CCFULL code. The fusion cross sections of approx 00, Prox 00DP, pro 77, Prox 88, modProx 88, Prox 10 over estimates the results obtained using BPM and the rest of the potentials under-estimates the result obtained using BPM technique.
