Future lies in Brushless Motors, Drives, Power Electronics & Embedded Systems.
“Japan, Germany and USA are three great nations who have focused extensively on developing and manufacturing great technologies. These countries have successfully weathered the toughest economic storms. India must follow suit or else risk becoming a nation of consumers, agents and IT coolies”.
Tomorrow belongs to those who understand how to create renewable technologies and manufacture them. Four components of renewable and manufacturing technologies are – eMotor technology, eMotor Drives, Power Electronics and Embedded Systems.
Today’s innovators need to have an exceptional command of technology, communication and project management skills. The course focus incorporates these critical elements.
Course Focus: Post Graduate Diploma in eMotors, eDrives, Power Electronic and Embedded Systems with emphasis on renewable and manufacturing technologies. The course targets young and highly ambitious electrical engineers who see themselves as leading innovators and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
eMotor Design Principles: This course will cover brushless permanent magnet motor technology design principles. Brushless permanent magnet motors are reshaping the world today with their extensive use in Wind Power, Electric Vehicles, Appliances, etc. The course will also cover the use of Finite Element Analysis tools.
eDrive Design Principles: Various motor technologies require unique design principles, hardware configuration and algorithm. This course will include motor drive design principles for brushed, brushless, reluctance and induction motors.
Power Electronics Systems: Power Electronic Systems forms the backbone of various motor drive topologies. In this course, we will cover advances in semiconductor and power electronic component materials, converter and drive topologies, etc.
Algorithm Design and Development: Every great software must be developed with a well thought out algorithm. However, in the real world, this is not always the case. Reality calls for changing requirements. In this course, we will cover algorithm development for various motor drives, MCU and DSP fundamentals, and the Agile principle of software development. We will also cover model based software development tools such as VISSIM. Simulation techniques would also be covered with such tools as PSpice, Simulink, Simnon, etc.
Embedded C: Embedded C forms the backbone of most of the motor drives and power electronic systems. We will cover the principles of C programming and practical differences in programming for 8-bit vs. 32-bit micro-controllers or Digital Signal Processors.
Hardware Design Principles: In this course, we will cover circuit schematics, printer circuit board layout and assembly. The course will also include analog as well as digital circuit design as it pertains to motor drives, power electronics and embedded systems.
Manufacturing Strategy: For significant innovations to be realized, it is essential that we focus on basic principles of production and understand supply chain strategy surrounding an innovative product. This course will cover those and in particular build an in-depth understanding in evaluating suppliers, processes, materials, supply chain clusters and technologies.
Communication Skills: It is critical that great innovators learn to communicate well. Without essential communication skills, one misses a great many opportunities. Therefore, this course will cover spoken as well as written English. The focus will be on technical paper and article writing, team communication, proposal preparation, etc.
Project Management Principles: All great innovations need brilliant project managers. Basic principles of project management are simple and straight-forward. This course will teach what is essential and critical in managing changes.
Product Certification Standards: In this day and age, all products must achieve certain certification to be accepted. These certification standards have evolved over last several decades and mainly focus on EMI/EMC compliance, consumer safety regarding fire, shock, etc. Some of the key UL, IEC, TUV standards for Automotive, Medical, Consumer applications would be covered in this course to prepare the innovator of the future for the current and upcoming regulatory environment.
Qualifications: BE/BTech, ME/MTech or Equivalent (AMIE, AIETE), B.Sc (Engg), MCA, MCS (After B.Sc), MSc (Electronics, Instrumentation, Comp. Sc., IT), MCM (With B.Sc).
