Amrita Water Distribution System - Water Management in Rural India

Amrita Departments: Department of Civil Engineering (Amrita School of Engineering) and Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications

Students, faculty, and staff joined hands to address the issue of water management in rural communities in India. The Amrita team implemented low cost water distribution and management systems in Harirampur, Rajasthan and Guptapada, Orissa. After conducting an in-depth site survey of the terrain of both villages and of available resources, the Amrita team custom designed a water distribution system consisting of a network of pipes and two overhead water tanks where available water can be collected and then distributed to each home.READ MORE »»

 

Amrita Sphuranam - Rural Electrification via Solar Power

Amrita Departments: Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications

India is home to some of the biggest and most densely populated cities in the world, yet only 30% of the country’s population lives in urban settlements. The true heart of India lies in its villages. However, it is these very same villages that are often neglected and under-nourished, lacking adequate food, safe water, and even electricity. READ MORE »»

Amrita Sphuranam

Amrita Micro Hydro Electric System

Amrita Departments: Department of Electrical Engineering (Amrita School of Engineering), Department of Civil Engineering (Amrita School of Engineering), Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications, Amrita Center for Nanosciences – Nano Solar Division, and Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (for technical guidance)

Many villages in India do not have access to electricity. Villages that do receive power, do so intermittently and with frequent disruption, making the supply of electricity unreliable. Komalikudi, a tribal settlement in Kerala well-known for its abundant natural resources, is one such village. Faculty, staff, and students designed, developed, and installed a distribution and transmission network which included a check dam, a network of pipes, a 5KW micro hydro generator, an underground transmission line, and a power house.
