Power electronics laboratory enhances the EEE students by proving them better understanding of the concepts and working of advanced power semiconductor devices and power electronics circuits.
Power electronics circuits are backbone of almost every modern convenience. Automobiles, cell phones, laptops and desktop computers, television sets and kitchen appliances among many other systems require power electronics circuits to convert electrical energy to a useful form. This laboratory teaches the techniques for efficiently processing electrical energy into other forms. This gives an experience for the UG and PG students in designing circuits and building and debugging the design if the power electronics circuitry.
The power electronics lab is equipped with the state-of-the-art instrumentation for design, simulation, layout and testing of Switching/Analog circuits. The power electronics lab is equipped with high voltage power supplies power meters Analog/Digital trainer kits, various power electronics trainer kits, power device parameter analyzer, etc., for design and characterization of power devices and circuits.
Apart from the regular laboratory classes, power electronics lab is also utilized for research purposes by PG students and faculty. The research in the power electronics laboratory involves modeling, control, topologies, and integration of switching converters, inverters, class-D power amplifiers, soft switching techniques, single phase power factor correction methods, single phase active power filters, power conversion for alternative energy sources etc.
