The Electronic Circuits Lab is equipped with AC/DC power supplies, function generators, oscilloscopes, training kits for the circuits, IC testers, solder/desolder stations, digital stopwatches, breadboards, digital multimeters and LCR meters to conduct a wide range of experiments in Electrical Engineering.
This lab is used to train Engineers and Technicians on the fundamentals as well as advanced electronic circuits and applications. Students will learn how to develop and employ circuit models for elementary electronic components, e.g., resistors, sources, inductors, capacitors, diodes and transistors, become adept at using various methods in circuits, gain an intuitive understanding of the role of power flow and energy storage in electronic circuits.
· DIGITAL & EMBEDDED SYSTEMS LAB
Experiments have been designed to familiarize students with the Digital Logic Design, through the implementation of different types of combinational and sequential such as adders, subtractor, code converters, comparators, multiplexers, flip-flops, counters, shift registers and sequence detectors. There is a trained and skilled lab technician that takes care of the lab equipment. He also guides students about handling the lab equipment and the precautionary measures required for the students while working in the lab.
This lab is used to conduct a wide range of experiments such as realisation of SOP & POS functions after K map reduction, Half adder & Full adder realization using NAND gates,4-bit adder/subtract or & BCD adder using IC 7483,BCD to decimal decoder and BCD to 7-segment decoder & display, Study of multiplexer IC and Realization of combinational circuits using multiplexers, Study of counter ICs (7490, 7493), Design of synchronous up, down & modulo N counters, Study of shift register IC 7495, ring counter and Johnsons counters etc. Also it in cooperates the experiments such as Data transfer instructions using different addressing modes and block transfer, Arithmetic operations in binary and BCD-addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, Logical instructions- sorting of arrays in ascending and descending order, Binary to BCD conversion and vice versa, Interfacing D/A converter- generation of simple waveforms-triangular wave, ramp etc, Interfacing A/D converter and Square wave generation.
The features and facilities available in this lab help the students to do their projects and enhance their knowledge on the latest trends and technologies. The objective of the lab is
• To do research and develop the embedded systems platform for future applications.
• To promote innovative projects and patent them for commercialisation.
• To support knowledge transfer in embedded system design to local manufacturers, as well as to education institutes.
• To gain experience in programming languages that are used in current industrial practice
· POWER ELECTRONICS LAB
· POWER SYSTEMS LAB
The Power Systems Lab is giving courses in power systems analysis, design and control in the undergraduate program of electrical engineering. Introduce the basic concepts of power systems as well as the tools students need to apply these skills to real world situations with power system analysis and design. The Power Systems Lab is equipped with power frequency AC high voltage test set (30 kV AC) , Microprocessor based over current and voltage relay test set, transformer oil testing set, Cable testing equipment, Megger ,a full-fledged power system simulation software ‘ Mipower ‘ and MATLAB. It is used for teaching basic and advanced concepts in power system generation, transmission and distribution, and training in power quality analysis.
· INDUSTRIAL DRIVES AND CONTROL LAB
Control laboratory provides a “hands-on” environment that is crucial for developing student’s understanding of theoretical concepts. Control laboratory is housed with different instruments like temperature measurement, level detection, pressure measurement, flow measurement etc On different panels or rigs these are arranged in different control configurations to achieve specific control objectives. Each student is exposed to the various industrial sensors used to measure the assorted process parameters. Modern process control techniques like DCS, PLC etc are made available to the student here.
The laboratory also uses the Control System Tool Box available in MATLAB and LabVIEW software to simulate the control system problems. Simulink available in MATLAB is utilized to simulate the real time systems. LabVIEW is a graphical programming platform that helps engineers scale from design to test and from small to large systems. Prospective students who wish to pursue graduate research in power electronics, robotics and automation, embedded systems and its applications in control, sensor design, and biomedical instrumentation may enroll in the Instrumentation & Controls choice of the graduate program.
