Fifth Semester Electrical Engineering students went on an industrial to Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited [BHEL] and Central Power Research Institute [CPRI], Hyderabad on 27th and 28th September, 2018.
Forging ahead on a sturdy foundation of over five decades of engineering excellence and embracing the glorious next phase of its growth, BHEL is an integrated power plant equipment manufacturer and one of the largest engineering and manufacturing company of its kind in India. It is engaged in the design, engineering, manufacture, construction, testing, commissioning and servicing of a wide range of products and services for core sectors of the economy. At BHEL students were taken around to various sections of the Generator Manufacturing unit. They visited the Rotor & Stator Winding section, complete testing process and installation of alternators were thoroughly explained by the concerned engineers.
The second day visit was at CPRI, Ultra High Voltage Research Lab ( UHVRL) where students were shown ultra high voltage testing facilities, impulse generator, cascade transformers used to generate high AC voltages, environmental testing laboratory and testing area of high power equipments. Students interacted with the Engineers at CPRI and were briefed about research facilities available, as well as the consultancy projects undertaken by them.
Students who visited these industries, 51 in number, were glad to be a part of this learning experience along with faculty members Prof.( Mrs). S. V. Banode, Prof. M. B. Maurya and non-teaching staff member Mr. S. Wadaskar.

Alumnus makes the Institute & City Proud

It is a moment of delight for the Techpallottines, as Mr. Nirul Masurkar, alumnus of the Electrical Engineering Department, 2009 batch, brought laurels, both to the institute and city at a global level.

Mr. Masurkar, PhD Scholar, alongwith a group of students came up with an innovative project titled ‘Smart Buoy’, that helps in real-time detection of water contaminants. The conventional water contamination test is a time consuming process, while theirs is an autonomous system with sensors designed based on nano-materials, high power biodegradable Li-ion batteries and communication network. The batteries are charged from solar panels installed with the sensor unit. The real time water contamination sensors are capable of communicating with several sensors installed in lakes or rivers.

Their project won the first prize at various global competitions, where top universities and renowned industries from all over the world participated. The events were judged by experts from NASA and national labs across USA. An overall prize worth USD 65,000 was won by them. Mr. Masurkar is co-founder of the start-up MicroBuoy Inc., in USA, along with two others.
