pic microcontroller projects for EEE students

Pic microcontroller projects are very popular among Electrical and electronics engineering students. PIC microcontrollers are family of microcontrollers designed by microchip. Pic microcontrollers used Harvard architecture. PIC microcontrollers are available in a wide range starting from 8-bit to 32-bit microcontrollers. Dspic microcontrollers are also very famous in the digital signal processing field. PIC16F family of pic microcontroller is very famous among engineering students and professionals. Pic microcontroller projects list is given below. PIC16F series of microcontrollers are used in almost all projects in this list.  This list contains pic microcontroller projects based on PIC16, PIC18 and Dspic microcontrollers.

Every year many electrical and electronics engineering students are working on different pic microcontroller projects. Pic microcontrollers are very famous among engineering students. PIC microcontrollers are easy to use due to easy to use compiler Mikro C. In this article, I have listed the best pic microcontroller projects. These projects contain a complete circuit diagram, simulation, and programming. I tried to cover each and everything in these articles. If you want to include your project in this list, write in comments. I will love to share your project with others.

 Complete list of PIC microcontroller projects:

This project consists of measuring alternating current with current transformer and  difference amplifier. It also contains source code with step by step guide.

This project is about how to measure alternating voltage using PIC16F877A microcontroller. Two methods are discussed to measure voltage ; one is difference amplifier method and other one is using potential transformer.

Speed control of DC motor is explained with step by step instructions to control speed with pulse width modulation technique. It also includes proteus simulation and  source code.

In this project, digital temperature sensor is designed using LM35 temperature sensor and liquid crystal display.  ADC is used to measure analog output of temperature sensor.

It can be used to measure frequency of square wave signals.  Timers and external interrupts are configured to measure frequency. LCD displays this measured value.

Digital humidity project measures humidity using SH11 sensor.  SH11 sensor is a capacitive type sensor. 555 timer circuit is used along with SH11 sensor.

It is used to convert dc voltage into ac voltage having a pure sine wave.  Full H-Bridge is used as a converter. IR2110 mosfet driver drives the MOSFETs of H-Bridge. PIC16F877A is used to provide SPWM signals and to control switches.

It is a complete design of single phase sine wave inverter. It includes dc to dc convert which converts 12 volts dc into 320 volts dc. This 320 volts dc is fed into H-Bridge which converts it into AC supply of 220 volts by using SPWM technique.

Green house monitoring system monitors various parameters of green house like temperature, humidity, intensity of light and soil moisture. It also controls lights, water pump , fan and shower according to parameters of these sensors.

This voltage protection system provides protection from under and over voltage of AC main power supply. If voltage fluctuates between minimum or maximum limit, this device triggers the relay to isolate devices from main ac power supply.

Smart solar charge controller project is designed using PWM technique. It is used to charge batteries from solar panel efficiently. It gives long life to batteries.

It automatically controls the street lights based on light intensity. If light intensity falls under a specific visibility limit, it will turn on the street light and also vice versa.

This project is about robot which travels on a black line. IR sensors sense black line. Robot follows the black line according to sensors outputs.

ATS is used to automatically transfer load from one source to another.  For example, if you have two power sources ; one is ac main supply and other is generator. If main supply shuts down, ATS can automatically turn on the generator and shifts the load to generator.

Buck converters are used to step down dc voltages. This project steps down the dc voltage and provides regulated voltage at the output.

Similar to last project, it is used to step up the dc voltage. This project is used to get regulated step up voltage at output.

It can be used to control intensity of street lights automatically based on percentage of light available. This project can be used to save power from street lights.

It consists of a soil moisture sensor and water pump. Soil moisture sensor measures the level of moisture in soil and automatically turns on or turns off water pump according to requirement of water in soil. User can also adds the functionality of GSM.  By using GSM module, user can check the soil level through sms and send message to control water pump.

Solar panels work through solar light. They provide better efficiency under full sun and their efficiency reduces under shade. Solar tracking system rotates the panels towards high light angle by measuring intensity of light through light dependent resistors.

Like other robots, metal detector robot can be controlled by remote or through WiFi. As soon as it detects metal in its surrounding, it send alarm signal to user by metal detection through RF communication.

PV panels provide dc voltage, dc current and energy at the output. This project measures solar energy along with voltage and current , displays its value on LCD.

Unlike light based solar tracker, time based solar tracker automatically rotate according to time.  Sun rotates according to time in day. It fellows the time to make adjustment to rotation.

ZCD circuits are used in power electronics circuit to make switching at zero crossing of sine wave to avoid switching losses. This pic microcontroller project detects the zero crossing and provide output in the form of pulse at output pin of PIC16F877A.

In AC power supply, power factor has very importance to define efficiency of power devices and power systems. This power factor meter can be used to measure PF of single phase devices.

AC power is measured in watts. This single phase ac power meter is designed to measure ac power in watts. It is also known as watt meter.

In power system, capacitors are used to increase power factor and inductive loads are  the source which reduce power factor. APFC project measures the power factor and automatically connect capacitor banks across load to adjust power.

This device is used to measure dc voltage. It consists of voltage divider and analog to digital converter. Voltage divider circuit reduce the voltage below 5 volts and microcontroller measures this voltage.

This is a complete list of pic microcontroller project using PIC16F877A, PIC18452, PIC18F4550, PIC18F46K22 and many other pic microcontrollers.

  1. Hello guys, working on this and need some help. Design a smart fish tank control system with 8051 microcontroller unit. In addition to MCU, the system should contains sensors to sense temperature, water level and water quality, it also has actuators of air pump and water pump. The system can be expanded with wireless communication of WIFI to have the ability of remote control.
