Engineering students seek to offer cost-effective energy solutions

Image

With the ongoing power and energy crisis in the State forming the backdrop, a number of final-year engineering projects seem to be aimed at providing cost effective energy solutions, albeit in their prototype versions. Students from Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan Engineering College in Perambalur and Sudharsan Engineering College in Pudukkottai have modified existing models of the electric scooter and car, in an effort to address its present shortcomings.

Recharge on the go

Students of the mechanical engineering stream, C. Fredrick, K. Gopinath, D. Manoj Prabakar and S. Guru Ganesh Priyan from Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan Engineering College chose to modify the motor unit of BSA Roamer Eco to enable ‘online recharging of the battery and increase mileage at no cost.' The bike has been equipped with dual lead acid batteries of 48 volts each and twin motors that have been connected to the front and rear wheel.

S. Charles, Principal, Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan Engineering College, said, “While the rear wheel motor provides the propulsive power required by the scooter to move, the front wheel motor generates current that gets stored within the back-up battery.” This set-up makes it possible for the electric bike to recharge itself on the go, while retaining the external charging feature. According to Mr. Charles, the battery back-up can be doubled if lithium ion batteries are used, an upgrade that could make the model commercially viable. The project was completed at a cost of Rs. 40,000.

Improvised electric car

As a model that tries to improvise upon the basic principles of a battery-operated car, the electric car designed by the team of eight electrical and electronics engineering students at Sudharsan Engineering College claims to integrate low costs with high efficiency. The drive system is fitted with a brushless (permanent magnet) direct current (BLDC) motor with a power rating that reads 48 volts and 600 watts. The BLDC motor is operated by a microprocessor-based controller that lets it achieve a maximum speed of 60 kilometres per hour.

The power required by the motor is supplied by a pair of 12-volt batteries connected in a series and charged using a trickle charger. The car, which is capable of carrying three persons , is rendered free from vibration and is provided with a uniform torque by the motor to ensure smooth travel.

The team of eight consisting of V. Madhubalan, Pothuru Mahidhar, V.S. Vinod, M.H. Nishar Ali, K. Murugan, S. Harjith, R. Prabu and T. Karthik, was guided by A. Ravi, who heads the department. Stating that the lack of fuel costs and the eco-friendly feature of the car as its main advantages, Mr. Ravi pointed out the rectification of certain issues in the prototype design of the car: “The overheating of the microprocessor controller was addressed by the use of a controller with higher rating and the introduction of a heat sinker; and the charging time was maintained at four to six hours through the use of high efficiency lead acid batteries.”

Some of the other important modifications include the addition of another BLDC motor so that the car's speed matched that of conventional vehicles, and the number of persons that could be aboard was increased to three from one.

The move by Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) to shift Kendriya Vidyalaya Fort School to the Kendriya Vidyalaya No.1 has shocked parents of about 200 students of the Fort School. In a letter to the KVS Commissioner, New Delhi, the president of Parents' Association, KV No.1, Fort, Tiruchi, A. Devarajan, said the move would affect the education of the children aged five to 10 years, since it would entail to and fro travel of 60 kilometres every day. Children of poor socio-economic background from places as far as Kulithalai, Samayapuram and Manachanallur study in the Fort school meant for civil sector, and it would be beyond the means of the parents to meet the transport costs, he said.

The letter said that it was first started in 1966 for civil sector on Hindi Prachar Sabha Campus in Tennur, before being shifted to the ordnance factory campus in 1969. On the request of the parents, one section of primary wing was retained and it has been functioning in a railway building at Fort Station for 37 years .

Denial of the school to the civil sector was unacceptable to the parents, he said, referring to the sudden decision by KVS after the completion of admission process. The KVS has been appreciative of the functioning of the Fort School at times of annual inspections, Mr. Devarajan pointed out. The parents approached MP N. Siva, who, in turn, conveyed the demands of the parents to the HRD Minister Kapil Sibal. The parents also met Collector Jayashree Muralidharan and sought adequate land within the city limits so that the KVS could be prevailed upon to not only retain the existing school for the civil sector, but also upgrade it. The parents met Deputy Commissioner of KVS N.R. Murali during his recent visit and sought a separate administrative set up for the Fort School.

Fun-packed learning in store at summer camps

Image

Fun and frolic is not what summer camps are all about today. The camps that offer a host of activities under one umbrella are fast growing into centres of learning with undercurrents of scholastic improvement.

Today summer has become the ideal season for kids to both pick up fundamentals and enhance existing knowledge of science, mathematics and English. The result is multi-activity camps offering Vedic maths, astronomy and quiz preparation techniques along with arts, crafts and games.

Unconventional setup

Though not purely academic, activities like robotics and science demos that the Anna Science Centre-Planetarium offers in its annual summer camp are scholastic in nature. “Though what we teach students is not based on the curriculum, it is still supportive education,” says Palanisamy, technical assistant.

The emphasis is on learning in an unconventional setting that is starkly variant from a regular classroom with half-hour sessions, do-it-yourself activities and no uniforms.

“While students learn principles and laws of science in a classroom, the camp demystifies these principles through activities and helps them discover how they evolved,” adds Mr. Palanisamy, observing that parents enrol kids in these camps hoping to trigger interest in science and maths.

Future focus

Camps are keen in engaging children in cerebral activities in a fun way as parents are anxious that these activities give the child an edge over peers in what is perceived as a competitive world. “How is my child performing?,' is not unheard of even in summer camps, says Nalini Aravindan, co-ordinator of the summer camp at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. Quiz preparation, vocabulary building and science never fail to find a place.

“Though parents may insist on ensuring children can face competition, we focus on other important attributes like basic etiquette, encouraging creativity, cultivating social awareness and becoming a better person,” says Ms. Nalini.

Along with palindromes and oxymorons, kids learn how to handle emergencies and help with directions.

Multi-activity camps can keep children better engaged than those that revolve around a single activity, says Mr.Palanisamy noting that only 20 per cent of children may exhibit keen interest while others go in to holiday mood.

It is essential that a new activity is introduced every half an hour to keep children tuned in, says Sivakumar of Trichy Plus.

Their annual camp tried to get children interested in quantum physics but soon switched to vocabulary building through Pictionary and spoken Hindi through songs and videos which generated better response.

“Children are clearly not into thinking hard in the holidays, though they eagerly participate in activities.” With parents focussed on future, career guidance, goal setting and time management are seamlessly integrated.

Summer camps also see normally reticent children shed their inhibitions, take initiative, and interact with peers.

Engineering college establishes nuclear instrumentation facility

J.J. College of Engineering and Technology here has received a grant of Rs.27 lakh from the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), Mumbai, for undertaking research to assess radioactivity levels in building materials, particularly in phosphogypsum-based ones.

To implement the project, the Environmental Research Centre (ERC) at the college has established a nuclear instrumentation facility for measuring naturally occurring radioactivity in building materials: bricks, stone, granite, cement, tiles and phosphogymsum, and Radon, a gaseous radioactive contaminant, in indoor air.
