Student Projects


Electric Vehicle Project - The Green 707 Club

Real-Time Dynamic Liquid Level Control
The purpose of this project is to control the water level in a tank through use of pumps, feedback, and digital controller. Once the physical system is interfaced with a computer, a software package is used to implement the control. Mathematical modeling is used to approximate the system and find the system's fundamental characteristics. This system is then used in conjunction with a suitable compensation technique to improve the system's steps response. The compensation is applied to physical system to illustrate that theoretical methods can be applied to a real system.

Tone Control with Digital Signal Processing
The purpose of this project is to control the frequency response of an audio signal. It shows how the base range frequencies are boosted, how the mid range frequencies are boosted and how the bass and treble ranges are boosted simultaneously. Boosting the bass range in music brings out the rhythm of a song. Boosting the midrange increases the "presence" and is generally used for bringing out a person's voice. Boosting the bass and treble ranges at the same time brings out the rhythm of a song while allowing the listener to hear high sounds such as a clanging cymbal.
