Electrical machines lab is one of the fundamental lab for the electrical engineering stream. The conventional machines laboratory courses can teach only the motor functionalities and drive concepts like induction motors and DC motors. During the lab session, the students will vary the voltage and current, using the autotransformer and rheostat to control the speed and load test of the motor. While it is important to teach the conventional motor setups, it is also equally important to give an introductory experience to the motor drives setup, their pulse control & commutation, VFDs, etc. It will enable the students to stay in line with the present industry requirements.
We offer Data Acquisition & Control systems that can be interfaced with external drivers & motors from industry vendors like Rockwell, Siemens, Kirloskar etc.
The compact RIO (cRIO) based NI embedded control platform gives an option to implement the PWM techniques for the inverters, DC-DC converters, 6 step commutation techniques, special machine control etc. The LabVIEW based graphical programming environment provides an intuitive method for students to acquire, visualize and process the signal from the experiment setup. With the help of these hardware setup, student can get the feel of motors and drives used in the industry.
