Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering
The Electrical and Electronics Departments of Paavai Engineering Colleges conducted a two day in-house Faculty Development Programme on the title, ‘Solid State Drives’ in the Cute Hall of PEC on 29.11.2018 & 30.11.2018. The resource persons were Mrs.G.Umamaheswari, ASP/EEE/PEC, Mrs.R.M.Thamilselvi, ASP/EEE/PCT, Mr.R.Manikandan, ASP/EEE/PCE, Mrs.R.Deepa, AP/EEE/PCE and Mr.S.Rathinavel AP/EEE/PEC. Dr.K.K.Ramasamy, Director Admin, Dr.M.Premkumar, Principal, Dr.K.Selvi Dean-Academics and Dr.R.KasthuriBai Dean –Faculty Development inaugurated the FDP and insisted that the faculty members should make use of FDP as a learning forum to discuss the advancements in the subject and also identify emerging areas to promote research and development initiatives. The first session on 29.11.2018 was handled by Mrs.G.Umamaheswari on the topic ‘Introduction to Electric Drives’. In this session she gave a brief introduction about the need for learning drives and a detailed review of comparing of four quadrant operation of drives. She also elaborated on the factors influencing the selection of drives. The next session was handled by, Mrs.R.M.Thamilselvi on the topic, ‘Chopper and Rectifier based Drives’. In her session she explained about different types of DC drives and the control strategies employed in it. She gave a detailed explanation of the method of deriving the output voltage and output current for the different types of chopper drives. On the second day, 30.11.2018, the first session was handled by Mr.R.Manikandan on the topic ‘Design of Controllers for drives’. He enumerated the different control strategies followed in drives. He also derived the transfer function of drive control circuits. The next session was handled by Mrs.R.Deepa on the topic, ‘AC drives’. She focused on the Stator and Rotor speed control of induction and synchronous motors. The session was concluded with some animations to have a clear understanding of the drive operations and solving of technical questions frequently asked in GATE exams and other competitive exams by Mr.S.Rathinavel. The Hands on training on ‘Electric Drives’ using MatLab software was given in the afternoon sessions. The faculty members were able to simulate and verify the outputs of circuits learnt in the theory sessions. The two-day FDP became an exclusive forum to discuss and extend the knowledge of faculty members in the Drives field. It was for sure that the faculty members have got a clear idea about the ways and means of explaining the functionality of solid state drives to the students.
