To carry out the studies in advanced field of Electrical Engineering and also to take up in-house projects, well qualified and dedicated faculty members who are instrumental in building the career of the students are available in the department.
The department received a grant of Rs. 7.25 Lakhs under MODROBS scheme for “Modernization of Simulation of Electrical Systems Lab” and a seminar grant of Rs. 1.50 Lakhs for “DSP Controlled Power Electronic Systems and Applications”, and Rs. 8.0 Lakhs under MODROBS scheme for “Modernization of Electrical Machines Lab” from AICTE.Our Department has received 23 Lakhs from DST under Women Scientist Scheme in the current academic year 2014-15 to take up Research project on “Enhancement of Real-Time Power Analysis and Control for Distributed Generation Interface using FPGA”. Mrs.K.Dharani Sree is the principal investigator for this project.
The department periodically organizes National/International conferences, seminars / Symposia, workshops and arranges guest lectures by external faculty for the benefit of the students and faculty as well. The department periodically conducts Technical Seminar/Quizzes, remedial classes for the slow learners and also Communication Skills development classes for the benefit of Students. The students are placed in various organizations like INFOSYS, IGATE, LEGEND, WIPRO, INFOTECH, SATYAM, SIMENS, Robert Bosch and CARITOR, APTRANSCO and APGENCO power sectors, Siridi Sai Electricals Ltd, Syntel, Toshiba Transmission and Distribution System Ltd and Cognizant Technologies Solution (CTS).
Faculty members are actively involved in research and academic developmental / consultancy activities. The faculty takes keen interest in attending summer / winter schools / workshops / conferences to acquire the technical knowledge about the latest technical developments in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and published/presented Research papers in various reputed journals/conferences. The management has keen interest to promote quality education and provide financial assistance to faculty members for attending seminars / workshops etc. The Department conducts industrial tours/visits in every year and visits to various industries and power houses for students are arranged as part of their curriculum. The Department also encourages the staff members to pursue Ph.D programmes to improve their academic qualifications.
Proposals have also been sent to Department of Science and technology (DST)/AICTE/UGC to organize Seminars / Workshops / Faculty development Programmes and to UGC to improve the infrastructure facilities, teaching aids and multimedia for the benefit of Students and Staff.
Mrs.K.Bhavani has submitted the project entitled “ Feasibility analysis of low speed high torque motor drive using a triple star bridge cells(TSBC) modular based multi level cascaded converter” to DST under the Women Scientist Scheme-A(WOS-A) for getting financial assistance.
Major and Minor research projects are in the pipe line to be submitted to UGC in the current academic year 2016-17 for getting financial assistance.
