Microprocessor

Digital Design

This is our fundamental laboratory in the Electrical engineering department. This lab has various types of microprocessors, Combinational & Sequential logic circuit trainer kits along interfacing modules to demonstrate the detailed applications of microprocessors. The purpose of this laboratory is to train the students to be familiar with the programming and hardware of microprocessors so that they can gain enough experience to meet the demand of the microprocessor era. The facilities in the laboratory enable students to build a firm background in microprocessor hardware as well as software. Students learn about assembly language programming, CPU, memory and I/O design, interfacing of programmable chips and peripherals such as stepper motors, analog-to-digital, and digital-to-analog converters, etc. They acquire the practical skills sufficient to design and realize basic microprocessor-based systems

Its overall needs are versatility and generality, in view of the many basic course needs it serves. This is the main lab where basic experiments like device characteristics and basic analog circuits are held. This lab is general enough to hold a number of experiments suitable for giving students enough exposure to enable them to easily adopts experiments in more advanced laboratories in the department. 

All basic electronic devices and their characteristics, applications can be studied. Using these devices the small electronic circuits can be constructed and checked. In order to introduce the students to basic components of electronics, this lab is furnished with advanced CROs, function generators, and digital multimeters. Students can perform practicals on P-N junction diode, Zener Diode, rectifiers and filters, transistor biasing and their characteristics in different modes, RC coupled amplifiers and FETs.

Power electronics

The power electronics lab enhances the Electrical Engineering student's understanding of the concepts and working of advanced power semiconductor devices and power electronics circuits.

In this lab:

* R, RC, and UJT triggering circuits are done to know how to give and adjust the firing pulse to the SCR so as to make it conduct.
* 1-phase semi converter and full converter experiments are carried out to understand the conversion of AC supply to DC supply and the variation of average output voltage for different firing angles.
* 1-phase AC voltage controller using TRIAC is done to get the variable AC output voltage from fixed AC input voltage.
* For converting DC to AC, 1-phase series inverter, 1-phase parallel inverter, and 1-phase Mc Murray inverter experiments inverter are conducted.
* Voltage and current commutated chopper circuits are carried out to comprehend the conversion of fixed DC to variable DC voltage by voltage commutation and current commutation respectively.
* Speed control of DC shunt motor, universal motor, and three-phase induction motor using respective power electronics circuits are also done.

High voltage Engineering

The mission of the High voltage lab is to provide state-of-the-art calibrations of measuring equipment used in high-voltage and high-current testing. The High Voltage Lab is used for high voltage testing and diagnostics. Tests in connection with power equipment, which in use can be exposed to high electric voltages or currents. Applied voltages are AC, DC, or impulses in order to simulate real conditions, including lightning and other overvoltages. High voltage tests are required in connection with power equipment, which in use can be exposed to high electric voltages or currents.

This plant is specially designed to teach the aspects of electrical machines, it consists of different electrical machines ranging from continuous generators to AC. It is also equipped with facilities for teaching electronics, electricity, and electric motors.

The Electrical Machines, Drives and Power Electronics Laboratory has Lucas-Nülle equipment which provides electrical engineering education on the topics of electrical machines, power electronics, and drive technology. Electrical machines convert electrical energy into mechanical energy or vice versa. EEM 300W Electrical Machines are used in the laboratory to convey the necessary background theory to nearly all of the circuitry and drives found in industry and commerce. Power electronics is the technology of switching and converting high levels of electrical power. Its main application is to drive technology. The EPE 300W Power electronic drives in the laboratory provide the opportunity to explore static converter technology and closed-loop control drives.

The objective of this laboratory is to enable the students to strengthen their understanding of the design and analysis of control systems through practical exercises. This will be accomplished by using modern software resources to analyze and simulate the performance of realistic system models and to design control systems to satisfy various performance specifications. Students will learn how to implement various types of compensators and control algorithms using MATLAB and Simulink.   They will design and implement controllers to ensure the stability of the system, and produce the desired results. This will give them a feel for the ‘real world’ systems, and how to use theoretical knowledge on practical systems.
