Dr. K. R. Madhu Kumar delivered a guest lecture on “the importance of energy conservation in day to day human life”. He said that the utilization & consumption of electricity is increasing day by day, so there is a need to conserve the energy in order to reduce the utilization of resources which are useful for the future. In India most of the power was being generated by the Thermal Power Plants, where the usage of Coal is increasing day by day to meet the demand. Due to the burning of coal, the emission of CO2 in to the atmosphere is increasing which is the main reason for depletion of Ozone layer which undergoes Global Warming. He mentioned that, in order to protect the environment for the future generation and to reduce the usage of Coal, there are some various alternative methods to generate the power by using naturally available resources like Sunlight, water, wind, tides etc., and lot of research works are going on in that aspect. Finally, he concluded his speech with a slogan “ save energy for a better future ”.

Later on the prizes are issued to the students who shown their best in Poster Presentation, Technical Quiz, Just a minute by the Chief Guest Dr. K. R. Madhu Kumar & by Director Academic Professor N.Krishna.

Later on Dr.T.Vamsee Kiran, Professor & Head of the EEE department gave an introduction about the LabVIEW software. In his speech he mentioned that this LabVIEW software was developed by National Instruments India and this LabVIEW software is a tool used to solve today’s problems faster and more effectively with the capacity to evolve to meet future challenges. He said that this LabVIEW software is very useful not only for electrical engineering but also helpful in the field of electronics, robotics etc., and it offers unprecedented integration with all measurement hardware, existing legacy software, and IP while capitalizing on the latest computing technologies.

Program coordinator Dr. A.V. Naresh Babu said that LabVIEW is designed specifically to accelerate the productivity of engineers and scientists. He mentioned that LabVIEW is unmatched in helping engineers translate their ideas into reality, reduce test times, and deliver business insights based on collected data.

Chief Guest Sri B. Ravi Kiran, explained the condition what they have 20years ago….. in those days the boilers & other equipments are operated and controlled manually which kills lot of time and reflects on generation of power, but in these days the technology was very much updated with new softwares which helps to sort out problems very easily and there by rectifying them in less span.

Later on the resource persons from the National Instruments hosted the lab sessions on how to use the LabVIEW software, how to design, implement, analyze different models with LabVIEW software.

 

WORKSHOP:

Name of the Event: A two day national workshop on “Computer Aided Analysis of power converters”

Date of the event: 13th and 14th August 2015

Venue: Department Seminar hall

Chief  Guest:  Sri Ch Sriprakash, SE Training, APGENCO.

Resource person: Dr P Sankar, PhD,NIT-T, Dr T Vamseekiran, Head of the Department, MIC College of Technology,   Dr A V Naresh Babu, Head, R&D, MIC College of Technology.

Participants: Faculty members & Students of Various colleges.

 

                       

                       

                       

 

Description: Power converters play the role of processing and controlling the flow of electric energy by supplying voltages and currents in a form that is optimally suited for user loads. They have the advantages like compact modular design, good controllability, ease of system interface and very low environmental impact. Power converters may be classified as voltage source converters, current source converters and multi level converters.  The voltage source converter is one such power converter that performs the task of either rectification or inversion used in many applications related to power electronics and power systems. The voltage source converter is the basic building block of adjustable speed drives, uninterruptible power supplies, FACTS devices like STATCOM, SSSC, UPFC & IPFC.  FACTS devices are used in power systems for power flow control, voltage regulation, improvement of transient stability and power oscillations damping. This workshop is planned for electrical engineers to enhance their computer aided analysis and implementation of power converters in various fields of electrical engineering.

Description:

The objective of the programme is to enhance the computer aided analysis of the students through MATLAB/SIMULINK. MATLAB is an object-oriented high-level interactive software package for scientific and engineering numerical computations. MATLAB enables easy manipulation of matrix and other computations without the need of traditional programming. It provides an interactive environment with hundreds of built-in functions for technical computation, graphics and animation. SIMULINK is an environment for multi domain simulation and model-based design for dynamic and embedded systems. It provides an interactive graphical environment and a set of block libraries that helps in design, simulate, implement and test a variety of time-varying systems including electrical drives, converters, communications, controls, signal processing, video processing and image processing. SIMULINK is a ready-access learning tool for simulating operational problems found in the real world because simulation algorithms and parameters can be changed in the middle of the simulation with intuitive results.

This one day workshop mainly focuses on the introduction to MATLAB programming and SIMULINK and its applications to different fields of engineering.
