The project was performed with universal electronics which is based in Karachi Pakistan at PRD Lab. Due to the energy crises the industry is switching to alternative power generators. The main issue with the maintenance of the generator is the constant failure of the controller which has to be imported ,the purpose of this project is to make a cheap efficient Electronic Frequency Controller (EFC) that can be used in almost all kinds of generators. The work was tested on Multisim and then soldered together. To make it functional the frequency generation was converted to voltage which was connected to the controller. The controller was joined with the actuator and the actuator opens the amount of fuel needed to run the generator so that there is a smooth constant voltage. If we have high frequency from the input like a heavy machinery is operational then the actuator will widen its opening and when the frequency is low the actuator will open appropriately. The presentation was a successful one but due to time deadline few minor adjustment could be made to make it more effective as discussed later.
