Test and Automation Control Using
Developed a water heater test station for the Department of Energy. The test
station can test six different water heaters at the same time. The tests
continuously run 24 hours per day for 30 days. The test station used LabVIEW
and National Instrument hardware.
Trouble shooting a
control software for a water heater butane test chamber using LabVIEW. The
hardware and interface included PCI DAQ card, SCXI chassis, GPIB, etc.
Developed test control software for a 20 million dollar Stirling engine R&D
project using LabVIEW. In DAQ program, the hardware setting and logging data
were stored in Access database. The needed data was saved into Excel data file
using SQL query. In the control program, PID control algorithm was developed.
The hardware and interface included PXI chassis, E serials DAQ card, SCXI chassis, GPIB, RS232,
Developed a test lab for a multimillion dollar dishwasher development project
using LabVIEW. The lab was AHAM and DOE qualified and conducted four
dishwasher tests at the same time. The hardware and interface included PCI DAQ
card, SCXI chassis, USB GPIB, RS232, etc.
Developed a dishwasher fast drying system test station for a potential client.
The assignment requires the superior drying performance which means the china
and silver wares are completely dry after the cycle. The temperature, relative
humidity, power, energy, air flow rate were monitored and recorded during the
test. The test station used LabVIEW and National Instrument hardware.
Developed a residential oven
prototype control and data acquisition program using LabVIEW. The complicated
test plans were stored in a Excel file which would control the oven for the
different tests automatically.
Developed a RFID control system for a food packaging application. The RFID tag
contains the information of type of food, weight, and recommended cooking
processes. The new designed oven control system can scan the package tag, read
the cooking procedure, and cook the food according to the procedure. The
hardware and interface included PCI DAQ card, SCXI chassis, RS232, etc.
- Developed a product
management database using Visual Basic / MS Access for an electronics
manufacturer. The database can keep track senor and components in
manufacturing floor. The database will be combined with their current ERP
software to improve the quality and productivity.
new water heater field test data analysis assignment for California Energy
Commission using Visual Basic. The assignment required to analyze 20 water
heaters in five years day to day data log file and evaluate the efficiency
performance. The data file size is about 2 G bytes.
