In the conventional power supply scenario, the electric power feeders in different areas are manually switched off when the demand goes above the scheduled supply. This causes immense revenue loss to the utilities besides discomfort to the consumers. Grid integration of intermittent and uncontrolled generation schemes like wind farms makes the situation worse with conventional power system control.

The primary objective of the project is to develop soft, compliant, lead-free, low-melting-temperature solder materials by electrodeposition. These materials are candidates to replace lead-tin alloys in flip-chip technology for microelectronic packaging.
Specifically, the goals are:electrodeposition-of-lead-free-solder-materials-for-microelectronic-packaging
Speaker recognition systems are useful for deriving intelligence information by tracking telephone conversations of people who are perceived to be a threat to the national security. Rules prohibit security agencies from eavesdropping on telephone conversations of private citizens. However, it may be necessary to eavesdrop on people with questionable national integrity.development-of-text-language-independent-speaker-recognition-system
Amrita engineering students built a formula car for SUPRA SAE, a global competition organized by the Society for Automotive Engineers (SAE). The contest was organized last year in Chennai, for the first time in India. The Amritapuri campus of Amrita University participated and the 23-member student team was the only one selected from Kerala.formula-sae

The main objective of this project is to monitor and control the machining process during ultra-precision machining of titanium alloys. Using advanced signal processing techniques, the hidden information in the acoustic emission signal is extracted to predict the machining parameters with high levels of accuracy. The features from the signal are extracted and a set of predominant features is selected using dimensionality reduction techniques.process-monitoring-and-control-of-ultra-precision-machining-of-titanium-alloys

Comprehensive study of threats, their operational architecture, and adoption of threat modeling for their classification, form the foundation for development of secure technologies for cloud. Cloud platforms today assist providers in controlling and managing the customer VMs. In addition, they also help monitor and manage cloud performance.threat-modeling-trust-modeling-and-development-of-secure-platform-in-cloud-environments
Virtual Lab: Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is transforming the face of higher education and research, through a revolutionary new educational tool – virtual labs. The VALUE Initiative is a project dedicated to developing these virtual labs in various science and engineering disciplines. Virtual labs are media-rich online learning environments, which allow users to conduct physical laboratory experiments in a computer-simulated environment. This innovative new educational technique is enabling experimentation beyond the boundaries of traditional laboratoriesvalue-virtual-simulation-labs
Amrita University is creating comprehensive Mechanical Engineering Virtual Labs in the following areas: Mechanics of Solids, Wind Energy, Solar Thermal Energy, and Energy Storage. Each lab consists of 8 to 10 experiments. All experiments have a common web platform where students can view experiments via a web interface happening in real-time with a web-cam.mechanical-engineering-virtual-labs
