Industrial Visit of EEE department, ADBU to 400 kV Mirza Substation

As a part of the regular field visit, a group of 27 students from B.Tech. 8th semester and 2 faculty members of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) department, School of Technology, Assam Bon Bosco university has visited the site of 400 KV Grid Sub-Station under AEGCL situated at Kukurmara, Mirza (Assam) on 28 February 2019 for educational purpose. 

Mr. Rakesh Shah from AEGCL guided the students’ visit in which they learned about various equipment and sections of the substation. Mirza substation has two incoming lines from Bongaigaon and Silchar. The substation has six transformers (to step down to a voltage of 200KV, 132KV, 33KV) and one auxiliary transformer of 80 KVA 33/0.415 kV to supply the loads in the substation. The students also visited the control room of the substation that consists of a computerized system, two surge panels (which are connected with various equipment using optical fiber cables), relay units, etc. In addition, the students were explained about the different parts of the substation, viz. lighting arresters and post insulators, CVTs with wave traps (for PLC purpose), earth switches, line reactor of 3 MVAR (used with the line incoming from Silchar to compensate for reactive power), CTs and PTs, Bus reactor, SF6 CBs etc. 

Two of the faculty members from EEE department- Mr. Sunil Deka and Mr. Papul Changmai accompanied the students. The purpose of such industrial field visit is mainly to give an idea to the students about the real world operations of electrical systems and related issues and it is expected to bridge the industry-academia gap.

Urgent: Current Students having NP, EAP, F & X Grades

On behalf of the Controller of Examinations, I would like to inform all that for the students having "NP", "EAP", "F" and "X" grades, the registration for the current semester is going on.
The last date of registration for 'Labs' is 20/02/12019.  
The last date of registration for 'Theories' is 30/03/2018.
The Examinations department have already notified for the same on 05/02/2019. Therefore, may I request all the concerned students with a gentle reminder, to do the registrations before the due date.

WAR-2019: Workshop on Arduino and Raspberry-Pi started in ADBU

The fourth edition of the two-day Workshop on Arduino and Raspberry-Pi (WAR-2019), was organized by the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE), School of Technology, Assam Don Bosco University (ADBU), on 16 February 2019 at the Azara campus of the University. A total of 18 participants participated in the workshop, including participants from other engineering institutes of the state.

Prof. P. K. Brahma, Chief Guest of the inaugural ceremony
The workshop kicked off with a formal inaugural session, lighting the ceremonial lamp by the dignitaries present and a prayer by Pro Vice-Chancellor of ADBU - Fr. Joseph Nellanat. Prof. P. K. Brahma- Director of Girijananda Institute of Management and Technology (GIMT), Guwahati and Ex-Principal of Assam Engineering College, graced the occasion as the Chief Guest; along with the other dignitaries from ADBU-  Mr. P. Joseph (HoD, Dept. of HSS), Prof. Shakuntala Laskar (HoD, Dept. of EEE), and Faculty and Staff Members of EEE department, ADBU.

The main objective of the workshop was to give the participants an insight of various applications of Arduino and Raspberry-Pi, the former being an open-source platform to develop engineering projects whereas the later is a handy small single-board computer. Covering from the basics, this workshop included Hands-on projects using Arduino and Raspberry-Pi, which are the latest trends in many electrical and electronics applications.

The resource persons of the workshop were Assistant Professors of the department - Mr. Gitu Das and Mr. Jyoti Kumar Barman; assisted by other faculty members - Mr. Papul Changmai and Mr. Hironmay Deb. The workshop concluded with the distribution of the certificates to all the participants in a formal valedictory session. More details about the event can be found at the website:
