M.Tech - Power Electronics and Drives
As a core branch the department lives up to the developments taking place in the field of electricity generation through hydro, thermal, nuclear and nonconventional sources. Similarly the department studies the distribution of electricity and use of new materials being used in different applications. The undergraduate programme in the department has been re-accredited by NBA, AICTE and offers M.Tech. programme in power electronics and drives. Eminent professors are engaged in quality research with an enrollment of 7 Ph.D. scholars.
• The department has its well-equipped specific laboratories for Electrical Machines, Controls, and Instrumentation, Power Systems, Power Electronics , Basic Electrical Engineering, Network Devices and Electric Drives.
• The Machine Laboratory is equipped with modern electrical machines.
The department has its own computer laboratories to facilitate computer Aided Electrical Machine Design for final year B. Tech. students and the students pursuing the Master's programme.
Starting with an intake capacity of 60 in 1996 the Department of Electrical Engineering is now catering to the growing need of 120 students in 2007. It has also paved the way for a Master's Programme with Power Electronics & Drives as specialization. Because of its academic excellence, the undergraduate programme offered by the department has been accredited by National Bureau for Accreditation (NBA), AICTE. To further its academic and research activities, the Department has already built up its infrastructural and human resource facilities in a big way. The second batch of Post Graduates in Power Electronics and Drive will pass out in September'2009. Students have also registered for Ph.D. programmes in Electrical Engineering.
The department has its own well equipped specific laboratories for Electrical Machines, Control and Instrumentation, Power Systems, Power Electronics, Basic Electrical, Network Devices and Electric Drives.
A Computational Laboratory having many computers have been added to this department for carrying out Computer Aided research activities in this department. MODROB (Modernisation and Removal of Obsolescence) is regularly being practiced in all the laboratories. Moreover a Robotics Laboratory is expected to function shortly.
The Machine Laboratory is equipped with modern electrical machines : single and three phase transformers with multi winding, DC & AC Motor Generator Sets, Induction and Synchronous Motors and Single Phase Motors to name a few.
The Control and Instrumentation Laboratory have Amplidyne Set, DC Position Control System, Data Acquisition System, PID Controller etc.
The Power Electronics Laboratory is equipped with Converter Rectifiers and Inverters both single phase and three phase, Cyclo Converter, IGBT based Inverter and other modern equipment in related field.
The Power System Lab is equipped with Relay Trainers, Oil Testing Kit, Current Injection Circuit, Artificial Transmission Line etc.
Basic Electrical Engineering and Network Devices Laboratory is meant for verification of Basic Principles of Electrical Engineering and Laws of Electrical Networks. The Department has its own well-equipped Library having many books of international repute for faculty members & students to boost their knowledge.
Besides, the Department is slated to have its own computer lab to facilitate Computer Aided Electrical Machine Design, software based project work for final year Under Graduate students, students in the Post Graduate Program. This lab also promotes the faculty members for in-house R&D programme.
Interested faculties are regularly sponsored to carry out Post Graduate and Doctoral research programs in reputed institute outside SOA University.
Conferences, seminars, distinguished lecturers are organized regularly in the department.
