Energy auditing session

Along with the activities which involve a lot of interaction, the student branch also focuses on building the technical knowledge of its members as well as the institutes’ students. Taking a cue from this, the IAS Chapter and WIE affinity group of the Student branch together organized a talk on Energy Auditing and Conservation. The session was handled by Ms.Prayaga Pratap and Dilshamol Abbas, third-year Electrical and Electronics Engineering students of the institute and runners up in the National Energy Auditing competition.

ACADEMIC SKILL DEVELOPMENT-2: CRO Workshop

Date of Event: 31st August 2017 (Thursday)

EVENT DESCRIPTION:
The CRO Workshop was held in order to explain its working and features. CRO is an electronic display device containing a cathode ray tube (CRT) that generates an electric beam that is used to produce visible patterns, or graphs, on a fluorescent screen. The graphs plot the relationship between two or more variables, with the horizontal axis normally being a function of time and the vertical axis usually a function of the voltage generated by the input signal to the oscilloscope. The main components of the device are Cathode ray tube (CRT), electron gun, a system for focusing and deflecting the electron beam, and a screen which is a visual representation of the voltages applied to the deflection plates. The CRO is one of the most widely used test instruments: its commercial, engineering, and scientific applications include acoustic research, television-production engineering, and electronics design.

Wireless Power Transmission

The first lecture of the Budapest University of technology and Economics Jt. IAS/PES Student Branch Chapter in the 2016/2017 spring semester was about wireless power transmission, and the attendees could listen to a presentation about its history, current problems and the possible future solutions. The lecturer was Dr. Szabolcs Gyimóthy, a professor of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, who is a well-known researcher in this field. He reviewed the past of the wireless power transmission and presented two transmission methods. The first called near field, where the effective range of the transmitter and the receiver is few centimeters. The other one is the far field transmission, which has bigger distance between the antennas.

Industrial Visit to SLBC High Power Broadcasting Centre

An industrial visit of level 2 undergraduates of Department of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering to Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation’s high-power broadcasting Centre in Trincomalee was organized by the IEEE Industry Applications Society of the University of Moratuwa. Undergraduates visit the transmission center on 10th November 2017 and the visit was a huge success with the participation of over 80 undergraduates. The main aim of this project was to create the much-needed industry exposure to the fresh undergraduates and balance the deficit with the theoretical knowledge to practical knowledge.

On August 12, 1980, the representative from Deutsche Welle in Germany and the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation in Colombo signed a mutual agreement, whereby a large radio broadcasting station, medium wave, and shortwave would be constructed at the former Royal Navy base in Trincomalee Harbor. This agreement is to a mediumwave transmitter at 600kW, three shortwave transmitters at 250kW, and one communication transmitter at 10kW. Both parties agreed to double the station’s broadcasting equipment’s if needed. This station was planned as a joint project between Deutsche Welle in Germany and radio Teheran in Iran.

The three shortwave transmitters were heard at a good level throughout Asia and well beyond also. Mediumwave transmitter was also heard widely. But with the civil war in Sri Lanka and company policies, Deutsche Welle decided to close two of its major shortwave relay stations which were in Portugal and Sri Lanka. But SLBC carried one program via the Trincomalee station and it was a three-hour broadcast in the Sinhala language beamed to the middle east. In 2012, the large international radio broadcasting station at Perkara- Trincomalee was taken over by the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation.

By visiting the broadcasting center, Undergraduates were able to learn the basic setup, equipment and the protocols used in the present broadcasting industry. They were able to get an idea of how the techniques they learn at the university such as modulation schemes, antennas, transformers used in the real world. Project Chairperson for this project was Mr.Lakshitha Gunasekara, current president of IEEE IAS in theUniversity of Moratuwa.
