Automatization of test rig for microwave ovens
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The thesis work is a part of a project where the major goal is to improve the efficiency of the evaluations of microwave ovens at Whirlpool Sweden AB. The purpose of the work has been to develop an automatic control and measurement system for microwave ovens. In an earlier thesis work, a test rig has been developed and this test rig has been further developed to an autonomous system. The software for this system is developed in LabVIEW and interfaces to some measuring instruments has been implemented for the system. As a plan for the programming work, UML-diagrams were created in Visual Paradigm To make it easy for the user to handle the system, a user interface has been created in LabVIEW. The system handles different XML-files: oven profiles and test profiles, which are defined by the user. An oven profile contains coordinates for specific positions at the front of a microwave oven, e.g. button positions and corners. There will be one oven profile per oven model. A test profile contains different stages with position names, operations and time delays. The position names are the names of the positions defined in the oven profile. The results from a measurement will be saved in a CSV-file.
