R&D LAB (ENERGY STUDIES LAB)
This project focuses on a battery charging technology utilized in small wind power generation system, in which the cost should be especially emphasized. Here a new control strategy is adopted to restrain the charging current by means of dynamically confining the duty cycle of the buck converter. In this project energy captured by the wind turbine is converted in to kinetic energy which is again converted into electrical energy with the help of PMSG. This electrical ac output is converted into dc by using rectifier. The dc output of rectifier is fed to the buck converter which produces 24V dc output which is stored in battery. 24V dc output of battery is converted into ac output by using inverter and transformer. Here two stages of conversion is done as the speed of wind and PMSG is not constant.
IoT Lab is a research platform exploring the potential of crowd sourcing and Internet of Things for multidisciplinary research with more end-user interactions. It gives the power to the crowd to be at the core of the research and innovation process. It gives you the power to change the world and the way we understand it.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or ‘things’ embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity to enable objects to exchange data. IoT allows direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, helping to connect people, processes and devices.
The applications of Arduino uno, Raspberry pi 3, Node MCU are practicing with the students from second year itself. It is very advantageous to the students for the motivation towards research.
