The budding engineers of our department experience practical realization of their theoretical concepts by indulging themselves in the following Workshops and Laboratories of the Department.
- Advanced Control System lab
- Analog and Digital Circuits Lab
- Measurements and Instrumentation Lab
- Power Electronics Lab
- Electrical Machines lab
- Electrical Workshop and
- Software-simulation lab with packages like Mi Power , MATLAB, SIMULINK, Comprehensive Control package, , AUTOCAD – Electrical, etc.
The Electrical Workshop is sufficiently outfitted with all the equipments and accessories for conducting practical classes in wiring practices as per BIS specifications. Models of modern switchgear and wiring accessories are deployed for the benefit of the students. The students are exposed to the current practices in domestic wiring and industrial installation.
Electrical Measurements Lab
The Measurement and Instrumentation Lab is equipped with various transducers and instrumentation trainers, resistive, capacitive and inductive measurement systems, LVDTs and strain gauges, thermocouples and RTDs, and Wheatstones Bridge. The lab also contains many basic electrical variables and time measurement equipments such as frequency counters, digital stopwatches, digital multimeters, electronic energy meter, electronic standard cells and digital oscilloscopes. The lab helps the students to gain hands on experience in different types of transducers and measurement systems.
The Electronic Circuits Lab is equipped with AC/DC power supplies, function generators, oscilloscopes, training kits for the circuits, IC testers, solder/desolder stations, digital stopwatches, breadboards, digital multimeters and LCR meters. The purpose of this lab is for familiarizing basic concepts of engineering circuit analysis, and to illustrate and reinforce these concepts and provide hands-on experience to the students.
This lab is used to conduct a wide range of experiments in electrical engineering, such as diode circuits, power supplies, optoelectronic devices, analysis and design of BJT and MOSFET amplifiers, operational amplifier circuits, power amplifiers, frequency analysis, oscillator circuits, active filters, digital and timing circuits and to train engineers and technicians on fundamentals as well as advanced electronic circuits and applications.
Electrical Machines Lab
Semester: IV, VII
The electrical machines laboratory is equipped with over 9 branded AC machines (single phase and three phase Transformers, Induction machines and Synchronous machines) and DC machines, enabling our students to work in an industrial environment. The lab facilities are sufficient to conduct experiments as per University syllabus and much more relevant experiments. The lab gives the students a thorough practical knowledge of AC and DC machines along with its industrial applications.
Power Electronics Lab
The Power Electronics Lab is equipped with Power Electronics Training System- Power MOSFETS, power thyristors, chopper/invertors control units, thyristors controllers, function generators, oscilloscopes, powerscopes, multimeters and signal generators. It is used for teaching the integration of power electronics converters to design and implement motor drive systems and controlled drives.
Advanced Control System Lab
The Systems and Control Lab is equipped with stepper motor controller, servo motors, temperature control process, pressure and flow control process, synchro transmitter-receiver trainer and digital oscilloscopes. The intention of this lab is to introduce the fundamentals of various analog and digital control systems, for testing, calibration and diagnostic of various control systems, PID controllers and interfacing, and for diverse student projects.
Apart from highly equipped and sophisticated central library of SIST , the Electrical and Electronics engineering Department separately owns a standard library. This department library has several foreign and well known publishers’ books and study materials related to electrical engineering along with the textbooks and reference books prescribed by the university of Cochin as part of the Electrical Engineering curriculum. The department is proud as the faculties and students rely the library faithfully for their reference, development and research activities.
Apart from the above mentioned texts and references the department also takes initiative in subscribing to various technical journals and magazines. The faculties and students having IEEE membership helps in updating the department to all learning and research programmes.
