Relevant Work Experience

Intern at Triphase Technologies Pvt. Ltd.( 1 year internship July 2016 - May 2017)

  • Worked in the Research and Development department, specializing in software design involving renesas G12 and G14 microprocessors
  • Received training in ancillary processes including PCB design, board assembly, precise soldering and component validation.

Publications

  • Pandit A, Agarwal A, Singh BK. Comparison of tracking algorithms in solar harvesting systems. IJIREEICE 2016; (4) 195-200. DOI 10.17148/IJIREEICE.2016.4938 

Academic Projects

1) Password recognition system interfaced with 4x4 keypad and alarm system ( using 8051)

  • The program was written in Assembly, designed to display, process and cross-reference input strings and trigger corresponding LEDs to indicate correct or incorrect keyboard inputs. Upon multiple failed tries, a separate “alarm” LED activates.
  • Involved the integration of the Atmel 8085C51 microcontroller with a 4x4 keypad, 16x2 LCD screen with a bread-board mounted LED array.

2) Digital Oscilloscope Realization using lab VIEW

  • Replicated the fundamental appearance and functionalities of a traditional oscilloscope within the digital instrumentation software, “lab VIEW”.
  • Functions that were implemented included dual axis scaling (magnitude and time), waveform isolation, cursor measurements and waveform analytics (RMS,pk-pk,FFT, etc).

3) Comparison of tracking algorithms in solar harvesting systems (Dual axes solar tracker, Arduino)

  • All optimization algorithms (I&C,P&O, CVT ,etc) were executed with an Arduino Uno to achieve MPPT, and power generated was fed through a boost converted that was designed based on simulated output. A comparative study was made based on the collated data and the results were published .
  • The constructed prototype achieved dual axes control via two servo motors, which manipulated the test panel array. The rectangular array consisted of corner-mounted sensory LDRs below a 11x6 cm solar panel.

Industrial Training / Certification

1) Industrial Trainee at Bharath Heavy Electricals LTD, (Indian public sector engineering company) Hyderabad: (May-June 2015)

  • Industrial training project : A study of manufacturing Turbo Generators through VPI process.
