Electrical machines laboratory
It has salient and non-salient pole alternators. It is possible to carry out vibration analysis using these machines. It also has power quality analyzer which is useful for analyzing the harmonic content and spectral content in alternators inverters for carrying out the energy auditing.
It has Multifunction meter which is useful for measuring and recording voltage, current, power factor, KW, KWhr and KVAR over a period of time. It creates the profile of the above mentioned parameters which are useful for carrying out any load flow and energy study.
Control systems laboratory
This Laboratory has Digital storage oscilloscopes which are useful for measuring and recording different parameters like voltage, frequency, phasor measurements. It is possible to carry out transient analysis and FFT analysis using these scopes. Chopper and Converter fed DC drives for Speed control of DC motors are available. Three Phase Induction motor drive, SRM and BLDC drives are also available.
Power Electronics laboratory
IGBT based three phase inverter fed drive for controlling 3 phase induction motor which is used for speed control over a wide range is available.
It has 1KW solar Panel with charge controller. Renewable energy based projects are carried out using this facility.
Power system simulation laboratory
It has ETAP, PSCAD, LABVIEW and MATLAB software. ETAP is useful for load flow analysis, Load frequency dynamic analysis, short circuit analysis, transient stability analysis in Power System related problems. MATLAB software is used to carry out simulation and analyze various engineering problems.
LABVIEW is employed to virtually measure physical quantities without employing any physical device. Further, it is useful in modelling and analysis of various systems through DAC interfacing with the system. Many complex control and soft computing techniques can be employed in simulation environment and the necessary actuating signals can be fed to the systems through DAC.
The library has a collection of about 350 books on variety of subjects. In addition to that, project reports, laboratory manuals and old university question papers which collectively support the teaching and research activities of the department are available. The transactions are carried out to the students and staff members through library incharge. Meticulous care is taken to develop resources for self-learning by students.
