Scale New Heights

Technology Based Training

Faculty of the department are training the students on recent and demanding technologies. They are actively engaged in the various thrust areas.  Some of them are listed below:-

Industrial Automation & Industry 4.0

Industrial Automation & Industry 4.0:

Industrial automation deals primarily with the automation of manufacturing, quality control and material handling processes. General purpose controllers for industrial processes include Programmable logic controllers, stand-alone I/O modules, and computers. Industrial automation is to replace the decision making of humans and manual command-response activities with the use of mechanized equipment and logical programming commands. One trend is increased use of Machine Vision to provide automatic inspection and robot guidance functions; another is a continuing increase in the use of robots. The rise of industrial automation is directly tied to the "Fourth Industrial Revolution”, which is better known now as Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 works with the IIoT and software/hardware to connect in a way that (through communication technologies) add enhancements and improve manufacturing processes.

Smart Grid

Smart Grid:

A smart grid technology is an essential to provide easy integration and reliable service to the consumers. A smart grid system is a self-sufficient electricity network system based on digital automation technology for monitoring, control, and analysis within the supply chain. This system can find the solution to the problems very quickly in an existed system that can reduce the workforce and it will targets sustainable, reliable, safe and quality electricity to all consumers. The smart grid can be defined as a smart electrical network that combines electrical network and smart digital communication technology. A smart grid has capable of providing electrical power from multiple and widely distributed sources, like from wind turbines, solar power system and even plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

Electric Vehicles

Electric Vehicles:

Just as there are a variety of technologies available in conventional vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles (also known as electric cars or EVs) have different capabilities that can accommodate different drivers’ needs. A major feature of EVs is that drivers can plug them in to charge from an off-board electric power source. This distinguishes them from hybrid electric vehicles, which supplement an internal combustion engine with battery power but cannot be plugged in.

There are two basic types of EVs: all-electric vehicles (AEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). AEVs include Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs). In addition to charging from the electrical grid, both types are charged in part by regenerative braking, which generates electricity from some of the energy normally lost when braking. The type of vehicle that fit for a person depends on the personal needs and driving habits.

Solar Technology

Solar Technology:

We have lived with the sun our entire life and probably most of us take it for granted. But do we realize just how great the sun is and what it can do for us? Electricity is the lifeblood of modern civilization and we can get as much as we want from the sun. Solar panels are active solar devices that convert sunlight into electricity. They come in a variety of rectangular shapes and are usually installed in combination to produce electricity. The primary component of a solar panel is the solar cells, or photovoltaic cell having low efficiency and high cost. So application of nanotechnology helps us to make solar energy more economical. The third generation of solar cells is being made from variety of new materials besides silicon, including nanotubes, silicon wires, and solar inks using conventional printing press technologies, organic dyes, and conductive plastics. The transparent solar cells is an advance towards giving windows in homes and other buildings the ability to generate electricity while allowing to view from inside. Currently solar energy’s biggest problem is the highest cost compared to other sources. But introduction of nanotechnology in solar energy will increase the efficiency and reduce the cost which will give solution to global energy crisis
