It gives me immense pleasure to lead the EEE department. The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering has been an integral part of the institute since its start in 2008 and it has grown steadily over the years. The EEE department offers undergraduate programme in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The department is spread over 11 laboratories, well equipped, with state of art equipment. At present 3 research scholars pursuing their doctoral. The faculty and staff of the department are actively involved in organizing and participating in programs aimed at professional development. The department is networked with industry and premier institutions for activities such as curriculum development, internships projects and training.
The electrical and electronics engineering program is designed to provide a strong educational back ground on which the candidates can build successful and sustainable careers in electrical and electronics engineering and other allied core fields of specialization to meet the needs of Indian and multinational companies. The curriculum will consist of courses of study; Theory, Practical, Project.
The department is well equipped with highly sophisticated laboratories. Thelabs in addition to enhancing the theoretical instruction gathered in the lecture halls, also aids the students and faculty in there research activities.
The objective of Electric Circuits laboratory imparts hands on experience in measurement of circuit parameters, study of circuit characteristics and simulation of time response. It also gives practical exposure to the usage of CRO, power sources, function generator etc. Microcontroller lab offers demanding practical revelation to the students in the field of microcontroller architecture and industrial control through microprocessors and micro controller.
The Power Electronics laboratory is an advancement of electronic circuit lab. It familiarize with the application of electronic devices for conversion, control & conditioning of electric power. Measurements Laboratory reinforces the students with an adequate work experience in the measurement of different quantities and also the expertise in handling the instruments involved. The Control system laboratory provide sound knowledge in the time response of systems and steady state error analysis, gives basic knowledge in obtaining the open loop and closed–loop frequency responses of systems and the concept of stability of control system.
The Electric Machine Laboratory imparts knowledge about characteristics and behavior of the DC and AC Machines. Operation of DC and AC machines give them experimental skill, familiarize with the constructional details of different types, working principle and their performance.The High Voltage laboratory focuses on high voltage research, evaluation, and education. HighVoltage facility provides the necessary environment for academic research in high voltage engineering.Power System Simulation labfamiliarize with different aspects of modeling of components and system and different methods of analysis of power system planning and operation.
The students will have the ability to :
Electrical and electronics engineering specialize in various areas like power generation, transmission and distribution; communications; manufacture of electrical equipment etc. or any one particular specialty within these areas;
The Electrical and electronics engineering is responsible for designing, developing, testing as well supervising the production of electrical and electronic equipment and machinery. Forexample industrial robot control systems or aviation electronics, testing equipment & machinery, solving operation problems, estimating time and cost of electrical and electronic.
Favorable employment opportunities are predicted for electrical and electronic engineers in India as well as abroad like in design construction of power lines, in control and management of power stations or in design and installation of electrical systems and machineries, such as transformers, electrical motors, power electronics devices. The career opportunities also include
Energy club was established in 2012 – industrial visits, technical quiz, expert lectures, workshops, seminars are conducted regularly.
Pushpanjali S Biradar&Meghana M R attended an internship on Description and hardware view of products for gear box and machinery and PCB’s and IC checking in EM Electronics Private limited, Yeshwanthpurfor duration of 1 Week. Internships are provided by ABB, Suzlon, BHEL, ISRO, Schneider electric, GE, SKF, EM Electronics and Electrical Substations.
A MOU with Cadd Center for training the students in Auto Cad Electrical, Orcad, Multisim and other softwares. Facilitating the students to get placed in reputed companies and it is also helpful for their project works.
We in our department having industrial and subject expertise on the following stream
1. Transformer less hybrid power filter based on a six-switch two-leg inverter for improved harmonic compensation performance
The main scope of the project is to reduce the harmonics which are produced due to voltage distortions, additional losses and malfunction of the electronic equipment.The system proposed by us is more enhanced because it is transformer less and number of switches used is less as compared to the existing systems which include nine switch inverters with transformer and dual converter configurations where APF's deal with higher harmonics. These topologies have been successful in harmonic compensation to some extent but due to transformer used and large number of switches the circuits are complex and costly. so comparing to existing topologies SSTL technology provides better results with lesser circuit complexity and cost.
1. 2. Power factor control of large doubly-fed reluctance wind generators
The vector control (VC) of anemerging brushless doubly-fed reluctance (BDFRG) technology for large-scale wind turbines. The BDFRG has been receiving promising attention due to its low operation and maintenance costs afforded by the use of partially-rated power electronics, and the high reliability of brushless construction, while offering performance competitive to its traditional slip-ring counterpart, the doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG). A robust VC control scheme has been developed for a custom-designed BDFRG fed from a conventional ‘back-to-back’ IGBT converter. The preliminary studies have evaluated the algorithm under the maximum power factor control (MPFC) conditions which allow the improved efficiency of the generator-converter set and the entire wind energy conversion systems (WECS).
