Power System Automation Laboratory
pursues research activities in the areas of high impedance fault
detection and distribution automation.
Power System Control and Protection
Laboratory devotes facilities to the development of
digital simulators for relay testing and systems for automated
analysis of faults.
Electronics and Clean Power Research Laboratory have
the capability for experimental work in the development of power
electronic devices and circuits, including advanced power
converters, motor drives and power electronic device
Electric Machines and Power Electronics (EMPE)
Laboratory , is equipped with several state of the art
digital signal processor (DSP) controlled motor drive test beds.
Innovative motor drive topologies and electric machines are
developed in this lab.
Power Electronics & Motor Drives
Laboratory , Design, simulation, prototype
construction, testing, and evaluation of medium to high power
converters, adjustable speed motor drives, and hybrid electric
vehicle propulsion components are done in this laboratory. The
laboratory is equipped with several test beds, and associated
instrumentation, for experimental evaluations. Sophisticated power
electronic, motor drive, and vehicle simulation packages have been
developed for advanced research and system design. Distributed
solid state power systems can also be simulated in this
