Our vision in starting an M. Tech Programme in Power Electronics & Power System is to ”Develop and maintain a high quality teaching and research environment in Power Systems, Power Electronics and Control and to emerge as a center of excellence for contributing towards the society”
Topics in power electronics are essential for key enabling technologies and understanding of the diverse disciplines encompassed by power electronics -semiconductor devices, power converter control and its application in power systems and motor drives -is therefore important to all power engineers. The M. Tech curriculum is designed to train the students with adequate domain knowledge and skill-sets in Power Electronics & Power Systems and related subjects along with the flexibility to choose interdisciplinary electives. Thoroughly designed course contents and hands-on laboratory exercises enable students to pursue successful career options in various research programmes (higher studies) in Power Electronics / Power Systems/ Renewable Energy Systems and related areas, roles in design and development with government/ private organizations, employment in R & D organisations related to sustainable technologies etc.
The curriculum focuses on learning the concepts through designand development. Electrical engineering laboratories are well resourced with modern scientific equipments that are calibrated for accurate measurements. Well equipped laboratory facilities are installed for developing new design/testing and verifying an existing design or hardware modules. To provide more exposure towards industry standard software tools, we have research level licenses for simulation software's like PSCAD, DSA tools, Labview, Mathematica, ANSYS, MATLAB, etc.
Power Systems Laboratory
Power Systems Laboratory provides students with an environment to experiment on various aspects of power systems including safety and quality. Some of the facilities include: Fault simulator for studying and analyzing various power systems faults, facilityfor studying parallel operation of alternators, facility for studying earth fault protection, differential protection, over voltage and over current protection, solar simulator for studying PV array characteristics, air blast circuit breaker assembly withearth fault protection, earth resistance measurement unit, power quality analyzer, insulation testers and Mipower for power system analysis.
