M.Tech in Power Electronics
|Course Type||Post Graduation|
|Duration||2 years (4 semesters)|
|Department||Electrical and Electronics Engineering|
About the Programme:
The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering started M.Tech in Power Electronics in the year 2006 with an intake of 18. The Programme is approved by AICTE and Government of Karnataka and is affiliated to Visveswaraya Technological University, Karnataka.
Power electronics finds applications in Control of AC & DC drives in industries, commercial, aerospace, utility and military applications and also it plays an important role in switching power supplies, High voltage DC lines which interconnect two different AC systems. Rapid developments in recent times indicate the applications of semiconductor power devices that can efficiently switch large current at high voltages with an emphasis on low power loss.
Due importance is accorded to both theory subjects and dissertation work. Each of the subjects is handled by chosen, experienced staff, and is complemented by senior practicing experts from reputed industry. The dissertation work is supervised meticulously by specialized faculty. It is a matter of pride that all the three university ranks were bagged by the very first and second batch of students, in 2008 and 2009.
The course curriculum focuses on Solid State Power Controllers, Power Semi Conductor Devices, Digital Measurements, AC-DC Drives and Control, Switch Mode Power Conversion, HVDC Power Transmission, Power Electronics Systems using IC's, Advanced topics on Power Electronic Systems, Embedded System Design, Digital System Design Using VHDL. The Students also get an opportunity to work in industry collaborative laboratory set up by ABB.
Eligibility: Candidates who have acquired BE/B.Tech/AMIE degree in Electricals & Electronics, Electronics & Communication, Instrumentation Technology and Telecommunication Engineering by securing not less than 50% marks in aggregate are eligible. However in case of candidates belonging to SC/ST/Group 1, aggregate percentage of marks in qualifying examination should not be less than 45%. The admissions are through central counseling on the basis of merit in PGCET or GATE. GATE qualified candidates are eligible for scholarship through AICTE.
Infrastructure: The Department have specialized laboratory and students are expected to work and gain practical knowledge in ABB/Project Lab, Power Electronics Lab, High Voltage Lab, Relay Lab, Power System Simulation Lab.
Research Opportunities: Students are Motivated to participate in research projects in the areas of, but not limited to: Control Systems, Power Electronics in Power systems, Power Systems Protection, High Voltage Transmission Systems, Power Electronics & Industrial Drives, Applications of Power Electronics.
Placement opportunities: Students have placement and internship opportunities in IBM, ABB, TD Power Systems, APC, HP and many others.
