The Research laboratory is developed with the aim of enhancing the research capabilities for power engineers in the department. It supports undergraduate, postgraduate and research scholars to enhance rapid technology transfer in various domains in the field of power systems and power electronics and drives.


The Research lab shows a new mechanism to improve the innovation ability of research scholars and to collaborate with the industry persons. It provides a platform for the research scholars in the department to share their knowledge in their field of expertise. It also helps the post graduate students to understand the basic necessity in doing research and to acquire guidance from the experts in various domains.  The lab also supports in conducting lab sessions while conducting national/international short term training programs and workshops to all the participants satisfying their thirst in the recent fields of power systems and power electronics. Research in the department may be broadly divided into 11 so-called “thrust” areas:

  • FACTS devices Transient stability enhancement
  • State Estimation
  • Multi-level inverter
  • Congestion Management
  • ANN for Voltage stability monitoring
  • Evolutionary computation techniques for stability enhancement
  • Feeder reconfiguration
  • Relay Co-ordination
  • Power quality monitoring
  • Fault classification in electrical machines
  • Non-conventional energy sources.
  • Renewable Energy Integration

The lab is equipped with following software’s and equipment’s:
