WATT CLUB - Every Watt Counts

The Watt Club provides a forum, where students, alumni, faculty and industry professionals can come together for interaction, discussion and exchange of innovative ideas, to provide solutions to the possible energy crisis in future. Objective of this club is to promote consciousness and awareness among students about energy scarcity, measures to conserve energy and environment, ways to promote renewable energy, issues of sustainable development.

The Watt Club was inaugurated on 5th February, 2013 in the presence of all the dignitaries with the lighting of kuthuvillaku at Nalli Arangam. The chief guest, Col.A.K.Vasudevan (joint controller, controllerate of quality assurance, Ministry of defence ) has given the inaugural address and the Guest of Honour, Mr.Rangaraju Kidambi,CEO of Developer Mark Technologies has delivered a guest lecture on “Recent trends in Solar PV system”. Dr.M.Singaaravelu, the Head of EEE Department welcomed the gathering. Prof.R.Dheenadayalu, the Dean, honored the guests and addressed the students on the occasion. Ms.K.Kanchana AP (SG)/EEE proposed the vote of thanks.

The Website of Watt Club (www.wattclub.saveetha.ac.in) is designed by the students was launched by Mr.Rangaraju Kidambi.. The Car Manufacturing giant, FORD, has given a FORD FIGO car for the students of Electrical and Electronics Engineering to do research projects out of it. The key of the Car was handed over to the members of the Watt Club by Dr.M.Singaaravelu who suggested it to run using renewable hybrid technologies (solar power and fuel cell).

The students of Electrical and Electronics engineering have made a solar car. Watt Club has awarded a cash prize of Rs.5000/- for these students in order to motivate them. Prizes were awarded to the students for Logo Design, Website Design and innovative ideas by the dignitaries.

 REPORT ON 1.5 kW SOLAR POWER PROJECT

Motivation

In recent years, extensive use of electrical equipment has imposed severe demands for electrical energy, and this trend is constantly growing. Consequently, researchers and governments worldwide have made efforts on renewable energy applications for mitigating natural energy consumption and environmental concerns. Among various renewable energy sources, the solar energy has been considered attractive choice. This motivated us to do a project on the Implementation of solar system in our campus.


About the Project


Thus the interested EEE Students (Watt Club members) have done a project on “Design and Implementation of Solar PV system” of 1500 Watts. This renewable generating system is successfully implemented on the roof of Saveetha Engineering College front portico in the 3rd week of April 2013.
1200 Watts of load in the Central Library is now connected to the system for testing purpose and it is working successfully till the day. The generated electrical power is taken through the charge controller circuit to the batteries and the output of the batteries are connected to an inverter from were supply is given to our college library. An Energy meter is fixed for measuring the total energy consumed from solar power.

Specifications of Solar PV system


Type of material - Mono crystalline
Total power generation - 1.5kW

WIPRO MISSION 10X LEARNING CENTRE

  • Mission10X Learning Centre was set up in the year 2013, with the sole aim of training students in the area of embedded systems, so as to make them industry ready.
  • The lab was set up at a cost of about Rs 20 Lakhs. The lab has Unified Technology Learning Platforms, on which students learn to work with OMAP 3530, Xilinx SPARTAN 6 FPGA and Accessories.
  • Various interfacing modules like Camera, Bluetooth, GSM module, RFID reader, Mi-Fare reader, Web camera, solid state relays..etc. are available in the lab, for students to carry out various projects in the lab.
  • Currently the following projects are being carried out in the Lab.
