Department of Electrical Engineering, SGVU
FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK...
The Department of Electrical Engineering, under the stewardship and guidance of Ms. Vishu Gupta, takes immense pleasure into issuing its first ever departmental newsletter. It aims to highlight the creativity, innovations and achievements of students across various streams and programs. The horizon of this newsletter extends from projects to placements, seminars to workshops, events to occasions and the non-stop phenomenon of research and developments in and around Suresh Gyan Vihar University.
The need for newsletters have been long felt, that could act as a plethora of information for anyone trying to catch up with the on-going inter-departmental activities or keep themselves updated with recent and upcoming events. Moreover, this platform also brings to limelight, the prodigy of students across diverse domains.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the faculties, group members, colleagues and classmates of electrical department for their cooperation and support in bringing out the newsletter.
We have a lot more to offer in our upcoming volumes. Stay tuned!!

1. GSM based Automatic Irrigation System
An evolution, made in the field of irrigation technique in India by students of 7th Sem. With use of this technology the farmer can easily spritz water over the field without moving muscle. The project is mainly used to control the on-off action of a motor in the field based on the dry and wet conditions of the field using GSM Technology. It also covers protection for various electrical and electronics components such as, Submersible motors, transformers, GSM module etc., from various fluctuations and faults in the power supply.
2. Variable Speed of Single Phase Motor Through Bluetooth Devices
Talking in the way of getting fresh air from our AC’s or Fan, or while making mouthwatering dishes through mixers we all do have motors installed in our home appliances in way or another. So an effort was made by the students to provide a way to control all these appliances with your cell phones and which has successfully done. This technology not only provide us a control over these appliances but it also do control switching ON/OFF of other appliances such as T.V, room lights, etc. and all that is for free.
3. Maglev Train
Maglev (derived from magnetic levitation) is a transport method that uses magnetic levitation to move vehicles without touching the ground and yes, a small portable working model of this thing has been made in Electrical Department of Suresh Gyan Vihar University, Jaipur. In the public imagination, “maglev” often evokes the concept of an elevated monorail track with a linear motor. Maglev systems may be monorail or dual rail and not all monorail trains are maglevs.
INNOVARIA (24th-27th Feb, 2016)
Innovaria, a technical fest, is a major event of Suresh Gyan Vihar University, organised annually at its own campus The name Innovaria ultimately focuses on the new innovations in various fields in science and technology. This technical fest is organised for various fields like Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, computer science , civil engineering , Electronics and communication Engineering .The fest is organised to promote scientific and technological ideas among the youths of today. The technical fest hosts various events which span over different fields of Science and Engineering.
This fest not only focuses on the new ideas in technical areas but also in reinvention of things by using wastage .The recycles of wastage are used in this feast. The entire event place is decorated with the things, which are made up of wastage, by students of Suresh Gyan Vihar University. This feast is organised by faculties and students of Suresh Gyan Vihar University of various departments.
A Spanish company called Vortex Bladeless is proposing a radical new way to generate wind energy that will once again upend what you see outside your car window. Their idea is the Vortex, a bladeless wind turbine that looks like a giant rolled joint shooting into the sky.
In its current prototype, the elongated cone is made from a composite of fiberglass and carbon fiber, which allows the mast to vibrate as much as possible. At the base of the cone are two rings of repelling magnets, which act as a sort of nonelectrical motor. When the cone oscillates one way, the repelling magnets pull it in the other direction, like a slight nudge to boost the mast’s movement regardless of wind speed. This kinetic energy is then converted into electricity via an alternator that multiplies the frequency of the mast’s oscillation to improve the energy-gathering efficiency.
Volvo Hybrid City Bus
Volvo has introduced its hybrid technology in India. The first Volvo hybrid city bus pilot will start in Navi Mumbai with Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport (NMMT), a major transportation service in Navi Mumbai and its surrounding areas and cities.
“The unveiling of the first Volvo hybrid city bus in India is context .It offers completely new possibilities and unprecedented advantages for any city. It runs on electricity for 70% of a normal route, cuts energy consumption by 60% and reduces CO2 emissions by 75%. That’s what we call Green Efficiency.
In electric mode it runs silently and with zero emissions. Therefore, your city can offer public transport operation in sensitive and restricted areas too, such as in safety and zero-emission zones.
The Volvo 7900 Electric Hybrid comes as a turn-key solution, where vehicles, infrastructure, monitoring, maintenance, service and repair are all included. With this approach we can offer the requested capacity and up time at minimum financial risk.
New Foldable Battery Takes Cue from Chinese Calligraphy
Scientists in China have developed a flexible, rollable, foldable battery inspired by traditional Chinese calligraphy involving ink on paper. Worldwide demand for flexible electronics is rapidly growing, because the technology could enable such things as video screens and solar panels to bend, roll and fold.
Lithium-ion batteries power most portable devices, from smartphones to tablet computers to laptops. However, so-called lithium-air batteries could, in principle, hold five to 10 times as much energy as a lithium-ion battery of the same weight. This means that lithium-air batteries could theoretically give electric cars the same range as gasoline ones.
"Due to the ultra-high theoretical energy density of lithium-oxygen batteries, they may be one of the most suitable candidates in the future for the development of flexible electronics," study senior author Xinbo Zhang, a materials scientist at the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry in China, told Live Science.
