RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF EEE DEPARTMENT

NMREC enables faculty to work at their full potential level by providing facilities for research which in turn enrich their teaching. NMREC’s resolute commitment in creating a Research Environment ∶ It provides an environment conducive for research where the faculty members and students continuously update their knowledge and are always on the leading edge of learning and technology. Faculty members and students are free to set their own research agendas and are provided with exclusive labs for their specialized work. Simultaneously, Students get the benefit of learning latest updates/technologies through this cycle of Researching ╶ Learning ╶ Application and Dissemination of knowledge at a higher level Regular faculty improvement programmes and participation in various workshops and seminars provide the opportunity to share pertinent and valuable information for a synchronized collaboration of strength, skill and joint purpose.

The department has developed prototypes in the form of projects for the generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of electrical energy incorporating the advanced technologies and covering a wide range of fields such as control systems, microprocessors, electronics, electrical machines and signal processing.

The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering is involved in research in the areas of Power Systems and High Voltage Engineering, Advanced Power Electronics and Electric Drives, and Renewable Energy.
EEE Dept. broadly identified the following three research fields

1. Renewable Energy Research Centre
