Department of Electrical Engineering has organized an International Seminar on “Hybrid Electrical Vehicle Charging System” on Sunday, 1st July, 2018.
Dr. Rathore shared his International experience in the field of Hybrid Electrical Vehicle Charging System with all the participants came from various institutes. More than 80 participants (Students as well Faculty Members) from various streams have registered and attended the event. Participants learnt a lot from the International resource person regarding Hybrid Electrical Vehicle charging system. Dr. Rathore focused a light on charging techniques of hybrid vehicle namely vehicle to vehicle, grid to vehicle, problems associated with these techniques, and the prospective solution for the problems encountered while charging.
In this seminar, International Resource person was Dr. Akshay Kumar Rathore who came from Concordia University, Canada.
