Top 25 Electrical Mini Projects

Earlier, we have already published a list of electrical projects which are collected from different sources for the convenience of engineering students. So, now we are providing the list of the top electrical mini projects ideas in this page. As many engineering students are searching for the best electrical projects from the 2nd year and 3rd year, we are providing this list of projects. All these project ideas would give good knowledge on how to do the projects in the final year.

Top Electrical Mini Projects List:

Auto Night Lamp Using LED: Auto Night Lamp Using High Power LEDs is a circuit which turns ON the LED lights interfaced to it at night time and it turns OFF the lights automatically when it is day.
Anti Bag Snatching Alarm: This is a simple alarm circuit to thwart snatching of your valuables while travelling. The circuit kept in your bag or suitcase sounds a loud alarm, simulating a police horn, if someone attempts to snatch your bag or suitcase. This will draw the attention of other passengers and the burglar can be caught red handed. In the standby mode, the circuit is locked by a plug and socket arrangement (a mono plug with shorted leads plugged into the mono-jack socket of the unit). When the burglar tries to snatch the bag, the plug detaches from the unit’s socket to activate the alarm.
Automatic Plant Watering System: This one of the most useful project in our real life. It helps us in watering plants automatically without any human interference. We may also call it as Automatic plant irrigation system. We know that people do not pour the water on to the plants in their gardens when they go to vacation or often forget to water plants. As a result, there is a chance to get the plants damaged. This project is an excellent solution for such kind of problems.
Water Level Indicator: The Water Level Indicator employs a simple mechanism to detect and indicate the water level in an overhead tank or any other water container. The sensing is done by using a set of nine probes which are placed at nine different levels on the tank walls (with probe9 to probe1 placed in increasing order of height, common probe (i.e. a supply carrying probe) is placed at the base of the tank). The level 9 represents the “tank full” condition while level 1 represents the “tank empty” condition.
IR Remote Control Switch: By using this circuit, we can control any house hold appliance with the help of remote. In this project, there are two parts – one is in transmitting section and the other is in receiving section.
Battery Charger Circuit Using SCR: Here is the circuit diagram of battery charger circuit using Silicon Controlled Rectifier. SCR can be used in half wave rectifier, full wave rectifier, inverter circuits, power control circuits, etc.
Stun Gun Circuit: This Stun gun circuit is mostly used as a weapon to stun or send shock waves to the target with the intention to weaken or paralyze it.
Digital Voltmeter Circuit using ICL7107: Here we designed a analog to digital converter working as a digital voltmeter using a low power three and half digit A/D converter ICL7107 having internal 7 segment decoders, display drivers, a reference and a clock.
Variable Power Supply and Charger: This is a circuit which helps to check or test your electronic projects and also to charge the Mobile phone batteries. This circuit can also work as an emergency light.
Voltage Doubler Circuit: This is another kind of circuit which helps to convert 12V DC current to 24V DC current.
Celsius Scale Thermometer using AT89C51: This Celsius Scale Thermometer circuit is designed using at89c51 and lm35. This circuit works on analog to digital conversion principle. It can be used at homes, mobile places like cars to keep a track of the temperature.
Cell Phone Detector: This is a simple circuit which helps to detect the presence of an activated cell phone by detecting the signals in the frequency range of 0.9 to 3GHz. It helps in mobile phones tracking which are used for spying.
Temperature Controlled DC Fan using Microcontroller: The main principle of the circuit is to switch on the fan connected to DC motor when the temperature is greater than a threshold value.This can be used in home applications and in CPU to reduce heat.
Stress Meter: This stress monitor lets you assess your emotional pain. If the stress is very high, it gives visual indication through a light-emitting diode (LED) display along with a warning beep. The gadget is small enough to be worn around the wrist.
Bidirectional Photoelectric System: Photoelectric detectors are usually unidirectional, i.e. they are able to detect when someone enters a particular area but not when leaves it. On the contrary, a system able to detect movement in both directions could be useful to control shops, rooms etc. If installed in a shop it could allow to know if all customers entering the premises have left them at the end of the day. Or, at home, it could be used to switch on the light (or any other electric device) when one enters the room and to switch off the electric device when he or she leaves it.
Self-powered Fast Battery-Tester: This circuit runs a fast battery test without the need of power supply or expensive moving-coil voltmeters. It features two ranges: when SW1 is set as shown in the circuit diagram, the device can test 3V to 15V batteries. When SW1 is switched to the other position, only 1.5V cells can be tested.
Low Cost FM Booster: Here is a low-cost circuit of an FM booster that can be used to listen to programmes from distant FM stations clearly. The circuit comprises a common-emitter tuned RF preamplifier wired around VHF/UHF transistor 2SC2570.
Self-Powered Door Bell Watcher: This very simple and self-powered device was conceived to allow a person to monitor if someone has rung his home door-bell when he was out. As most door-bells use 12Vac supply, the circuit must be simply connected to the two door-bell-coil leads.
Fridge door Alarm: This fridge door alarm is using a 3V battery supply should be placed (in a small box) in the fridge near the lamp or close to the opening.
