Abstract

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is ineluctable one in day-to-day life. LPG is used as a fuel in a wide range of applications including heating and cooking appliances, industrial applications, in vehicles and as a propellant and a refrigerant. Gas leakage is one of the major concerns with commercial premises, residential and gas powered transportation vehicles. Leakage of LPG produces hazardous and environmental unfriendly gases which effect human beings and other living creatures. As safety plays a major role in today’s world, it is necessary that good safety systems are to be implemented in places of domestic or industrial. Preventive measure that can be taken to avoid the danger associated with gas leakage is to setup a gas leakage detector at vulnerable locations. The main objective of the proposed Gas Leakage Detection and Automatic Control System (GLDACS) is to provide a solution by designing an automatic system which can detect the leakage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) at home and control it by turning off the cylinder knob. At the same time the window of that room gets opened automatically using DC motor and an SMS alert will be sent to the owner of the house using GSM module.
