Story

 

The Project

 

We want to show the operation of a temperature control system using hysteresis.

Components

 

The components we used were the following:

Temperature Control

 

The project does a temperature control, we model the following situation:

 

The system starts and shows the temperature, if the temperature reaches 25 degrees, then the green led is activated and the room starts to cool until the temperature drops to 23 degrees, the air conditioner turns off (red led) until the temperature rises again.

And finally we have a video where you can see the operation:
