Project Details

  1. Project 1: CAST – Nokia Siemens Networks
    Description: 
    CAST is a tool used by Nokia Siemens Networks to generate quotation their customers for their various network products
    Responsibilities Involved:
    1. Development of front end using VC++/MFC
    2. Development and maintenance of Oracle database
       
  2. Project 2: Fujitsu Network Corporation
    Description: Optical Network elements connected by optical fiber that can provide functionalities like transport, multiplexing, switching, management, supervision and survivability of optical channels carrying client signals 
    Responsibilities Involved:
    1. Development of application layer using C++
    2. Development of y cable protection using C++ 
       
  3. Project 3: Design of Boost Convert for 500W PEM Fuel Cell Stack for automotive Application
    Description: Proton exchange fuel cell is a type of fuel cell that can operate at lower temperature ranging from 50ºC to 100ºC which make them highly suitable for automotive applications. This project involves power control scheme of 500W proton exchange membrane fuel cell stack as a power source for automobile application. The proposed power control scheme includes control technique for a DC-DC boost converter for the 500W fuel cell stack
    Responsibilities Involved:
    1. Mathematical modeling of Boost Converter
    2. Small signal model of Boost converter
    3. Transfer function relating output voltage and duty cycle
    4. PID controller design using Matlab Simulink
    5. Implementation of PID controller in ATmega16 micro controller
       
  4. Project 4: Investigation on Performance and Emissions of RCCI Dual Fuel Combustion on diesel - Bio Diesel in a Light Duty Engine
    Description: Reactivity Controlled Compression Ignition (RCCI) combustion has been established by modification of intake of a diesel engine. Studies were carried out on the existing engine with Conventional Diesel Combustion (CDC) and performance and emission parameters were recorded. Cotton seed biodiesel (COME) as low reactive fuel was injected into inlet manifold through a port fuel injector and diesel as high reactive fuel is injected in the cylinder through direct injection. Modified engine was tested for performance and emission characteristics.
    Responsibilities Involved:
    1. Calibration of fuel injector
    2. Driver design for fuel injector
    3. Control of fuel injector using MK40DX256VMD10 micro controller
