The Departments of Electrical and Electronics Offers Ph.D. & M.Sc. (Engg.) by Research Programmes

The department has an R & D center recognized by VTU. Since its inception, the center has a good number of research scholars and guides conducting research activities. Undergraduate and postgraduate students are encouraged to do project works suggested by professors. Students are able to formulate the problem statement, experience the strength of solutions by analyzing the input data and output results. It is empowered by Professors with rich industrial & academic experience.  The thrust areas majorly include power systems, power electronics & partial discharge analysis.

Research Projects sanctioned to the Department

On-going project:
ProjectTitle: Modernization of Relay and High Voltage Laboratory

     Scheme: Modernization and Removal of Obsolescence (MODROB) for the year 2018-19

    Grant-in-aid Sanctioned: Rs. 13,00,000/-

    Project No:  F.No.9-293/RIFD/MOD/Policy-1/2018-19

    Coordinator: Dr. R V Parimala

    Subject Expert: Dr. S Sudalai Shunmugam.

The project aims at building additional research facilities to the existing relay and high voltage laboratory. The theme of the research work is centred on outdoor insulation, liquid dielectrics and high power system protection schemes. Simulation studies will be carried out using Digsilent Power factory package.

Completed project:

Project Title: “Real-time detection, measurement, and classification of power quality disturbance using GUI and DSP applications”

    Primary Investigator: Dr.Vidya H A

    Co-Investigator: Mr. K Venkatesha

    Funding Agency: VTU, Belagavi.

    Period: 3 Years (2011-2014)

    Grant Amount: 10 Lakhs

  • Power quality in the present scenario is very important due to increased usage of semiconductor based electronic equipment and non-linear loads in various industrial applications.
  • This research projectwas carried out to identify, classify and mitigate certain power quality disturbance using power electronic converters, active filters by implementing novel asymmetrical and symmetrical PWM techniques. Simulation and hardware implementation of certain topologies of single phase and three phase AC to AC converters and active filters using high frequency four quadrant bidirectional switches connected to inductive loads are carried out for analysing input power factor, harmonic profile at different switching frequencies and efficiency of the converter.
  • The simulation results obtained using MATLAB Simulink are in good agreement with the hardware results. The simulation and hardware results obtained clearly shows that in order to increase the efficiency of the converter, both input power factor and harmonic profile has to be considered that plays a vital role in designing the circuit for compactness and economy of power electronic systems.
