Proposed Title:

Power Converters and Control Techniques for Microgrids and Electric vehicles


The proposed FDP on “Power Converters and Control Techniques for Microgrids and Electric vehicles

”isaspecializedprogramthatfocuses on state of art technologies related to converter design and control for microgrid and electrical vehicles. This FDPtargets the research scholars working in the respective domains, to clarify their doubts in their relevant working research topics. This also helps the faculty to update their knowledge in the respective domains to give better understanding in the topics in the newly introduced courses. It helps the students to meet the current industry requirement. It also supports start-up entrepreneurs in the respective areas.

St. Ann's College of Engineering & Technology (SACET) was established in the year2001 at Vetapalem Mandal, Chirala, Prakasam District, Andhra Pradesh bythe St. MaryEducational Society, pioneered by Educationalists, Industrialists and Philanthropists. TheCollege is housed amidst lush green fields, in serene environment, free from pollution andconductiveforthepursuitofeducation.

About the Department:

From a modest beginning in 2001, the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department in St. Ann’s College of Engineering & Technology (SACET), Chirala has now grown into a fully integrated department in the field of Engineering and Technology. It is an “education with future”. Learning how to inquire, converse and collaborate, the skill that never go out of date. The objectives of imparting education, combined with creation, dissemination and application of knowledge are being met in an integrated form to create a synergetic impact.

To fulfill its mission in new and powerful ways, faculty, staff and student of the department strives to achieve excellence in every endeavour – be it education, research, consulting or training-by making continuous improvements in curricula and pedagogical tools. The faculty of the department published research papers in various reputed international journals and conferences with good number of papers published in SCOPUS/SCI indexed journals. The department of EEE has surpassed many milestones under the able and dynamic leadership of its HOD Dr. SVD Anil Kumar. Some of the notable achievements are: UG NBA accreditation – 2009-2016 NAAC Accreditation 2011 and 2016 Controller of Examinations – 2006 to till date
