The Department has set up a few workshops in order to carry out research in the identified thrust areas. These have facilities to conduct research at all levels. Students are actively involved in this to do research. Also research scholars and faculty members guide these students to do research in these labs. A diverse and talented pool of faculty with enviable credentials and sound knowledge in the academic discipline mentor the students in their projects and help them to realize their innovative ideas.
Electrical and Electronics Workshop
The electrical workshop has got three components, which provides introductory practical knowledge about Electrical and Electronics Engineering for all the engineering disciplines.
- First component is the Electrical workshop in which the students are given house wiring practice and familiarization of electrical protective devices and some of the commonly used home appliances.
- Second component is Electronics workshop in which students are given familiarization of different types of electronic components, measuring instruments and microprocessor trainer kit.
- Third component is PC hardware in which students study different parts of PC hardware.
Electrical Machines Lab
The department has well equipped Electrical machines laboratory. This laboratory is established with the wide range of equipments for doing their regular laboratory experiments. The DC machines include generators and motors. The DC machines are of separately excited type, self excited type and compound. AC machines include three phase alternators, motors (Squirrel Cage and Slip Ring type), synchronous motor, synchronizing panel, single phase machines are available. Modernized distribution panels (both AC and DC) are used to provide supply power to the various machine work benches. Each machine work bench is provided with a well designed connecting panel board made from thick hylum sheet with attractive printing on it. The Laboratory serves the educational and research requirements in the field of electric machines, electric motor drive systems, power and industrial electronics.
Electrical Measurement Lab
