The solenoid are used extensively in large number of devises that are used in various industries like refrigeration, air conditioning, automobiles, hydraulics, pneumatics, and many more. Solenoid requires boost supply when they are switched on, in order to achieve sufficient magnetic field so that its moving component state can be changed. The primary objective of this paper is to provide a PLC-controlled booster circuit for turning on solenoid or its excitation with optimum power consumption using a minimum number of components. This objective leads to reduced power loss in solenoid thereby increasing the durability of the solenoid.
