One Day Industrial Visit to the Loktak Power Station

One day Industrial visit was organised by the Department of Electrical Engineering, MTU under the sponsorship of TEQIP-III on 23rd April, 2019 at the Loktak Power Station NHCP Limited. 

About the Visit

The objective of the visit was to give exposure to the students about the operation, control and construction features of hydropower electricity generation in real life. Hydropower generation is studied in 5th semester of Electrical Engineering.

A total of 24 pre-final year students visited the industrial site accompanied by three faculty members and three laboratory staffs of the department. Mr N Jogendra (SM, Electrical ) explained thoroughly about the operation, control and construction features to the students.

Two Days Workshop cum Hands on Practice on Embedded System

A two days workshop cum Hands on Practice on “Embedded System” was held on 28th February and 1st March, 2019 at the university campus organised by the Department of Electrical Engineering under TEQIP-III.

The workshop mainly focuses to give participants a chance to get hands-on experience on the latest trending embedded system hardware and different types of sensors. Emphasis is given to make the participants learn how to program the control boards for different types of sensors and different applications. About 81 participants attended the programme including both days.

Aims
  • To be able to define hardware and software communication and control requirements.
  • To acquire knowledge of and be able to use tools for the development and debugging of programs implemented on microcontrollers
  • To acquire knowledge of sensor properties and apply these in the design of Electronic systems which integrate measurement
  • To make the students skill full and efficient for all the hardware
Objectives
  • To be able to work as part of a team, developing skills in interpersonal relations
  • Ability to lead and coordinate teams working on the design, development and implementation of embedded systems and proposing standard working methods and the tools to use.

Two Days Workshop on Basics of MATLAB and its Engineering Application

A two days workshop on “Basics of MATLAB and its Engineering Applications” was held on 29th and 30th of January, 2019 organised by the Department of Electrical Engineering under TEQIP-III.

Overview

The workshop mainly focuses on the basics of MATLAB and its applications in engineering fields. Using MATLAB, a student can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools and built-in math functions provide to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages. MATLAB can be used for a range of applications including signal processing and communications, image and video processing, control systems, test and measurement, computational finance, and computational biology.

Two Days workshop on Sensor guided Robotics in collaboration with Roboversity (28-03-2018 to 29-03-2018)

Roboversity is the Leading education provider in the field of Robotics in India delivering quality services through hands-on,practical, application-oriented workshops, trainings, projects and internships. You can participate in any of the Roboversity workshops including 7 Robots (Com-bo Course), Mobile Robotics, Solar and Smart Energy Systems, Anima-tronic Hand, Quadcopter, Haptic Arm, Sensor Guided Robotics, Gesture BasedRobotics, Swarm Robotics, Image Processing, Automated Railway Crossing, PCB Manufacturing, Bluetooth
Robotics,Solar Mobile Charger, Tricopter, Hexapod, ARM Architecture, Maze Solver Robot, Persistence of Vision, Home Automation System, IoT using Raspberry Pi, Automatic Solar Tracker, Access Control with RFID, Biometric Authentication, GPS & GSM based Tracker, etc..

What is this course about?

In this course, you will develop 3 different basic autonomous robots which are guided using sensors. The first robot will be a line follower which is programmed to follow a line. This robot detects the path using infra-red sensors which work on the principle of reflection of light. Using the same sensors, you will also develop robots that can avoid/follow obstacles or light.

Robots developed as part of this course

Line Follower Robot
Phototropic/Obstacle Follower Robot
Photophobic/Obstacle Avoider Robot

Course OutcomesUnderstanding of Line Following Robot, Phototropic/Obstacle Follower Robot, and Photophobic/Obstacle Avoider Robot.
Understanding the structure and programming of microcontrollers.
Participants are encouraged to think and come up with new designs.
Kit ContentSkyfi Labs’ Robotics Development Board
