BEST PAPER AWARD - April 20, 2016

Ms. Princy P, Final year PG student of EEE Department (M.Tech Electrical Machines ,2014-2016 Batch), guided by Mrs. Gayathri Vijayachandran (Asst. Prof., Dept. of  EEE), has won the BEST PAPER award for the paper titled “ Analysis of Induction motor with Broken Rotor Bars using Discrete Wavelet Transform” in the International Conference on Recent Innovations And Trends In Engineering & Science in association with IETE Trivandrum Centre held at Sree Narayana Institute of Technology, Adoor from 22nd - 23rd February 2016. The paper details the modeling of broken rotor bar in induction motor and its effect on stator current, torque and speed waveforms. In order to identify the broken rotor bar condition Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT), a newly developed signal processing technique is used to extract the current signals. Further a comparative analysis is done between a healthy and broken rotor bar motor.
