Electrical Engineering, like other branches of Engineering, is a very dynamic profession. Since its inception, the subject matter that must be studied and mastered has steadily grown. Starting before the beginning of the 20th Century with the devices for generating and distributing electrical power, initially used for lighting and then for driving motors, the applications of electricity have rapidly grown
The Electric Machines Laboratory is the Department’s main facility for instruction in the operation, testing, and control of electric machinery and electric power equipment. The Laboratory aims to equip students with knowledge and skills in electric power technology that can be applied directly in industry.
This has been appropriately identified by V.B.I.T and provided good Research and Development plat-forms to suit the come out industry and research requirements. The Research and Development environments provide the necessary exposure to the current needs and directorial guidance to the future trends.
The main objectives of the laboratory experiments provided here are to help students in Observing what happens to the principal electromechanical devices when they are linked to a power source by studying the real-time waveforms and how the devices can be modeled, facilities that are not fully present in conventional methods.
Examining the behavior of electric machines to evaluate the extent to which the basic machine models represent actual performance and to quantify some of the important second order effects.
Acquiring the knowledge of measurement techniques and experimental procedures in core electrical and computer engineering applications
The department has three more laboratories to ensure that the students of EEE gain enough practical knowledge of the industry requirements. The labs include:
- Networks Laboratory
- Control Systems Laboratory
- Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulic Machines Laboratory
In addition, various electrical switchgear, transformers, dynamometers, analog and digital meters, load banks (resistive, inductive, and capacitive), and other equipment are also available for experiments in electrical engineering. Laboratory experiments in industrial controls make use of programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and a variety of control relays, contactors, and timers.
Our experience shows that through this laboratory, students become motivated to understand electrical machine performance and, in general, become highly interested in power engineering.
We also provide students with adequate practical knowledge of electrical machines which is of clear interest in their future professional activities
Laboratory work includes the practical study of the steady state of three-phase transformers, three-phase induction machines and three-phase synchronous machines. The experiments allow students to derive the approximate equivalent circuits of each type of machine, which are subsequently verified by using a computational tool.
The concepts of design automation are followed in every field of engineering. Digital Control Systems labs are essential for the current industrial centers. Students are exposed to Mat Lab and NI Lab View/Windows development environment as per the current industrial requirements.
