Department of Electrical Engineering offers a two-year M. Tech post graduate programme in Power System. This course deals with the sophisticated methods of power system operation and control using computers and state-of-the-art techniques in power system analysis, stability, planning, reliability and forecasting. Research encompasses areas like power quality, power system planning, power system reliability and application of power electronics to power systems. M. Tech specialization in power system has intake of 18 seats.

Message from HoD

Electrical Engineering is one of the core fields of engineering, therefore considered evergreen in terms of scope and job prospects. The curriculum comprises of two major domains: Power & Energy Systems; and Instrumentation & Control Systems. The work of Graduate Electrical Engineer consists of development, construction, and testing of electrical devices and appliances and designing electrical systems for residential, industrial, or commercial buildings, as each of these types of facilities have different requirements.

Electrical engineers can pursue opportunities in diverse fields such as atomic power plants, hydel and/or thermal power generation and distribution industries. Job opportunities are ample in both private and public sector like railways, Armed forces, civil aviation, electricity board and utility companies, electrical design and consultancy firms, manufacturing industries, petroleum and natural gas plants as well as IT industries. Government sector departments like BHEL, HAL, State DRDO etc. are prime recruiters for EE graduates. Besides, many premier Educational and Research Institutions require electrical engineers as to work on research projects.

The department is equipped with the latest facilities and equipment for extensive undergraduate and post graduate training. The curriculum is designed to bring together different components of study: theory and practice, research, designing solutions, self-study and internships. A module is designated to team projects for designing workable solutions for challenging problems.

Our students are provided opportunities for training at the in-campus incubation centre and on-the job industrial training with our alliance partners THERMAX, GE- Healthcare, SIEMENS and PYROTECH. These Training Programs are instrumental in grooming industry ready candidates for the dynamic and evolving job market.

1. SOLAR STREET LIGHT IN GITS CAMPUS

Solar Street light installed in GITS campus: The final year students of B.Tech (EE) designed and installed solar powered street lights with automatic controls.  The project employs dual electrification i.e. it uses both solar and auxiliary power supply from AC mains and consists of a transistor and sensor called Light Dependant Resistor (LDR) that automatically switches the street light ON and/or OFF.

The benefit of this design is two-fold; firstly it runs on renewable solar energy and secondly reduces power consumption by efficiently switching on/off lights in response to ambient light.

2. ELECTRICAL SOLAR VEHICLE 2018

The Objective: The prime motive is to construct a reliable, economical and an efficient solar-electric car for daily commute that runs on free renewable solar energy.

Concept: The noiseless, pollution-free electrically driven vehicle uses Photovoltaic cells to convert solar energy into electrical energy through quantum mechanical transitions and ensures zero emissions with minimum maintenance.

Benefit to society: This project addresses the need of the transportation industry to reduce pollution and emission of green-house gasses that has resulted in health hazards and global warming.

3. LINE FOLLOWER ROBOTS

The line follower robots are mobile machines designed to detect predefined path (either a black line on a white surface with high contrasts or an invisible magnetic field) and follow the route. These robots work on the principle of sensing the line with its infrared ray (IR) sensors installed under the robot. The data is then transmitted to the processor by specific transition buses. An 8-bit microcontroller from Atmega family is used to decide the path and directions to be followed by the line follower robot.

4. E-BIKE “BOLT”

GITS was the only academic institute among other participants from industry and start-ups from India to exhibit its e-bike ‘BOLT’; an eco-friendly bike exhibited in International Exhibition in Asia’s 2nd largest Tech Fest Cognizance at IIT, Roorkee held on 23rd – 25th March, 2018. We received phenomenal reviews from Industry experts and evaluators at IIT Roorkee.

The features of the Bike are ;

  • Runs a distance of 120 kms on a single charge.
  • Maximum achievable speed of 55KMs per hour
  • Power and 100% torque torque for rapid acceleration
  • Low repair and maintenance and saving on consumables which are limited to tyres, brake-pads and break hydraulic fluid.
  • A soundless, environment friendly, runs on non-renewable fuel and emits no pollutants and
  • Lightweight and aerodynamic design capable of replacing conventional motorcycles as a sustainable, environmentally safe product.

5. HYBRID POWER SYSTEM PROJECT

The  first project of EIT “Power System” Components like inverter, charge controller, solar power generation etc were fabricated by the students themselves and the entire project was implemented in the following  three stages-

  • Electricity Generation using Solar panel of Rating 40W, 8 A and a Lead acid battery of rating 12V, 20Ah.
  • Transmission: The entire transmission system was outlined and demonstrated in the project which included Insulators, fuses, jumper wires, isolators and transformer.
  • Distribution: The distribution system consisting of equipment such as transformers, circuit breakers, and protective devices used by feeders and distributors to transmit electrical power from substation to the consumer end were elaborated through the transmission system.

6. SOLAR INVERTER SYSTEM

The power inverter transforms direct current (DC) electricity to alternating current (AC) electricity; it is commonly uses car batteries as a source for indoor power during power outages. This project was made by final year students Leela Lohar, Harshvardhan singh Jhala and Bhagwat singh Chundawat using Transistor, power diodes, regulator and several other electronics components. The 1KW, 12V. Inverter connected to the EIT lab for backup power supply can power to fan, tube-light, bulb, computer etc.

The earliest power inverters were complex electromechanical devices that used magnets and moving parts (including spring arms) to transduce direct current power into alternating current electricity. Modern power inverters employ oscillator circuits, which are made up of transistors and semiconductors rather than elaborate moving parts.

7. REMOTE OPERATED STAR DELTA STARTER FOR THREE PHASE INDUCTION MOTOR

The Third year EE. students constructed and designed a project of “Remote Operated Star Delta Starter for Three Phase Induction Motor” to fulfill the needs of Industry, Agriculture as well as domestic regions. This project consists of Contractors, Relay, Timer, Transmitter, Receiver and three phase induction motor. In star delta starting an induction motor is connected through a star connection throughout the starting period. Then once the motor reaches the required speed, the motor is connected through a delta connection.
This project reduces human efforts and provide safety also.
