NaMPET

NATIONAL MISSION ON POWER ELECTRONIC TECHNOLOGY (NaMPET)

Department of EEE has been recognized under NaMPET by DIT. The mission started in the year 2004 with C-DAC Trivandrum as the nodal centre and premier academic Institutions namely IISc, IITB, IIT Karagpur, IIT Kanpur and Bengal Engineering and state University & Anna University as participating institutions.

Activities of NaMPET are focused on four areas namely technology development, awareness creation, training, infrastructure development, and global promotion. A dedicated website namely www.nampet.in is launched and maintained by the Nodal Centre covering all activities of the Mission. Power Electronics technical data and literature are uploaded for ready reference.

Grants are provided to create National power electronics infrastructure at these institutions to help students, faculty and nearby industries to strengthen power electronics Research s& Development activities.

Department of EEE has utilized the grant of Rs. 56.5 lakhs under the Infrastructure development for establishing test and development facilities for power electronics applied to electrical machines power quality.

Technology development projects like development of IGBT gate driver, Full spectrum simulator, Ultra capacitors, Solar power pumps, power converter solution for Railways and steel industries are being developed with the objective to commercialise and market them.

Two MoUs have been signed by CDAC and Department of EEE, AU under NaMPET

  • For infrastructure development
  • For development of software libraries for full spectrum simulator using 'Sequel' software

Infrastructural facilities created using NaMPET grant are listed in the Table
