1.Engineering Practices Lab
Electrical workshop is intended for developing practical workshop skills in the students and it is offered to 1st year EEE students as GE6162- Engineering Practices laboratory. This laboratory is used to impart practical knowledge to the students about the different wiring schemes, familiarization of Megger, MCB and ELCB. They also gain knowledge about residential wiring, troubleshooting various electrical equipments like ceiling fan, mixer, air conditioner and other electrical gadgets. This workshop is well established with the required basic tools, trainer kits and accessories. The workshop is very imperative not only for the students of Electrical Engineering branch but also for the students of other engineering branches.
2. Electric Circuits Lab
EE6211- Electric Circuit laboratories are offered for 2nd year Electrical Engineering students as a part of the curriculum. Each lab experiment has a design part, simulation and an actual experimental verification in the laboratory (bread-boarding/soldering). The basic objective is to give hands-on
experience in the design and implementation of analog and mixed-signal circuits. The purpose of lab experiment is to continue to build circuit construction skills using different circuit element. It also aims to introduce MATLAB a circuit simulation software tool. It enables the students to gain sufficient knowledge on the programming and simulation of Electrical circuits.
3.Electrical Machines lab
The Electrical Machines lab, EE6411 Electrical Machines Laboratory-I and EE6512 Electrical Machines Laboratory-II are offered to 2nd year and 3rd year EEE students. This lab is equipped with more than 30 machine sets and can accommodate multiple batches of students at the same time. The lab houses a collection of AC & DC machines manufactured by Kirloskar, Crompton, GVD etc., The objective of the Electrical Machine Laboratory is to make students understand basics, testing, speed control, performance characteristics, and behavior of the DC and AC Machines, transformers, synchronous and asynchronous machines and give them experimental skill, familiarize with the constructional details of different types, working principle and their performance. This lab consists of machines such as DC machine, induction motor, induction generator, alternators, synchronous motors etc., all mounted in industrial type of assembly to give the students industrial feel. The service of this lab facility is also extended to the Departments of Electronics and Communication and Mechanical Engineering.
4.Power Electronics lab
EE6611-Power Electronics and Drives laboratory is provided to 3rd year students to get an overview of various forms of power semiconductor devices and its applications in rectifier, inverter and choppers. It also acquaints with the application of electronic devices for conversion, control & conditioning of electric power. Further it aids the students to acquire an overview of different types of power semi-conductor devices and to cognize the operation, characteristics and performance parameters of controlled rectifiers, to analyze the operation, switching techniques, modulation techniques of PWM inverters and to grasp the harmonic reduction techniques.
5.Control and Instrumentation lab
EE6511- Control and Instrumentation laboratory is offered to 3rd year EEE students with a view to provide sound information on analysis and design of control system along with the basics of instrumentation. The lab is aesthetically designed with state of art equipment to conduct various experiments like AC & DC servomotors, synchro transmitter and receiver, stepper motor, LVDT, strain gauge, optical sensor etc. and latest software like MATLAB & PSPICE. This lab also helps to train the students in the measurement of displacement, resistance, inductance, torque, angle etc., and to give exposure to AC, DC bridges and transient measurement. The design and implementation of control theory is done using MATLAB software to work out the experiments for obtaining the transfer function models, to perform time response and frequency response analysis and to grasp the idea of stability of system.
6.Power System Simulation lab
The objective of the Power System Simulation Laboratory, offered to the final year Electrical Engineering students as EE6711- Power system simulation laboratory, is to implement the concept of power systems modelling by mathematical modelling of various power systems equipment and to select the projects on power systems analysis & AI applications to power systems. The Lab is equipped with 30 Computers for conducting the simulation studies in multifaceted domains Like Control System, Power Electronics, Signals and Systems and Power System using various software's like Mat lab, PSIM, Auto Cad, MPLAB. This Lab facility is also used for Computer programming in C, C++. Simulation Lab facility is used for organizing workshop Lab sessions, short term courses like IoT, Robotics etc.
7.Renewable Energy Systems lab
EE8712- Renewable Energy Systems laboratory is offered to 4th year EEE students. RENEWABLE Energy lab focuses on designing, testing, and disseminating renewable and efficient energy system. The mission of Renewable Energy Systems laboratory is to help these technologies to realize their full potential to contribute to environmentally sustainable development in industries. This lab helps students by providing adequate inputs on a variety of issues in harnessing Renewable Energy.
