Two major efforts constitute the program:
Faculty expertise from both power systems and power electronics is frequently combined
in research activities. Power systems research is performed in the areas of
analysis, reliability, monitoring, control and protection of power systems. Some of the
faculty also have a strong interest in control systems, digital signal processing, data
communications, and intelligent system applications. Power electronics research is
performed in the areas of motor drives, power electronic converters, utility interface
issues, active filters, and electric and hybrid vehicle. Some of the faculty also
have strong interest in power quality and diagnostics of electrical machines.
Electric Machines and Power Electronics (EMPE) Laboratory , is equipped with several state of the art digital signal processor (DSP) controlled motor drive test beds. Innovative motor drive topologies and electric machines are developed in this lab.
Power Electronics and Clean Power Research Laboratory , has the capability for experimental work in the development of power electronic devices and circuits, including advanced power converters, motor drives and power electronic device simulation.
Power Electronics & Motor Drives Laboratory , Design, simulation, prototype construction, testing, and evaluation of medium to high power converters, adjustable speed motor drives, and hybrid electric vehicle propulsion components are done in this laboratory. The laboratory is equipped with several test beds, and associated instrumentation, for experimental evaluations. Sophisticated power electronic, motor drive, and vehicle simulation packages have been developed for advanced research and system design. Distributed solid state power systems can also be simulated in this laboratory.
Power Engineering Laboratory ,Power Engineering Lab, equipped with advanced hardware / latest academic and professional software, provides the students and trainees with hands-on experience in Power Engineering.
Power System Automation Laboratory , pursues research activities in the areas of high impedance fault detection and distribution automation.
System Control and Protection Laboratory , devotes facilities to the
development of digital simulators for relay testing and systems for automated analysis of
