Project for This Course

The project is worth 15% of the total grade. Note: Use Visio to create charts and diagrams.

Goal: Develop a program that will automatically adjust a variable resistor until the maximum power is

Purpose: For this project, you will create a prototype of a circuit designed to transfer the maximum
power to a load. The program will receive a keyboard input representing the value of the power supply
and the size of the load resister. The program will simulate driving a motor controlled variable resistor
by incrementally changing the value of a variable resister.

Requirements:
1. Analyze the following program requirement.
• You are designing a circuit that will automatically adjust circuit resistance until the maximum
power is delivered to the load.
• The circuit consists of a programmable power supply, a variable resistor, a fixed resister, and a
programmable load resistor. Examine the schematic:

• The user will enter the value of the Programmable Power Supply and the value of the Programmable
Load. The program must automatically adjust the variable resistor R2 until the maximum power is
transferred. R2 is a 0 to 10k ohm potentiometer that is controlled by the program.
• The Programmable Power Supply has a range of 1 to 15 VDC and is accurate to .1 V increments. The
Programmable Load has a range of 100Ω to 5kΩ and is accurate to 1Ω. Values that are not within range
will damage the equipment and cannot be accepted!
• After valid values are entered, the program will automatically adjust R2 until the power delivered to
RL is at the maximum value.
• The program must output these values until the maximum power transferred:
R2 RL PR2 PRL
• When the maximum power is obtained, the following message must be provided. Maximum power
transfer to RL is XXX.X P Watts. (X numbers, P metric prefix)

Deliverables, Requirements, and Timeline
Project Part 1:
1. Visit Books 24x7 in the ITT Tech Virtual Library. Read Chapter 1, Section 1 in Embedded Software:
The Works by Colin Walls. Create a Word document that answers the following questions:
o How are prototypes used when developing an embedded system?
o What are the input and output parameters of the system?

2. Brainstorm the requirement and develop a rough algorithm for YOUR project:

main

3. Sketch a structure chart for the application.

4. Create a project called MaxPower and add a source file called main.
a. Design and implement a simple program that will accept the desired voltage, the load, and the
value of R2 and then calculate and output I, PR1, PR2, and PRL.
Declare variables:double V, I, R2, RL, VR1, VR2, VRL, PR1, PR2, PRL;
I = V/(R1 + R2 + RL);
VR1 = I * R1;
VR2 = I * R2;
VRL = I * RL;
PR1 = I * VR1;
PR2 = I * VR2;
PRL = I * VRL;
Print output to screen:
printf("\n(R1+R2+RL)/V\tRL Power\tPower R2\tRL\n");
printf("------------\t------------\t------------\t--\n");
printf("%.4f\t\t %.4f\t\t%.4f\t\t%.4f\t\n\n\n", I, PR1, PR2, PRL);

print code when it is working, screen print prgm, turn in for a project grade.
