Both Electric Vehicles and/or Micro Grid directly or indirectly have a large role to play in solving the two major challenges the world is facing today viz.rapid depletion of fossil fuels which are our major conventional energy sources today and the consequent impact of their use on the environmental pollution, the main cause for the degradation of a healthy ecological life on earth.
Accordingly, there has been a continuous R&D activity the world over to promote the growth of Electric Vehicles and Nonconventional Energy sources to combat the above two challenges. Electrical Vehicles(EV) as an alternative to IC engines based automobiles which depend upon diesel/petrol and Micro Grids to effectively link the two major Non conventional Energy sources viz. Solar and Wind Power Generating stations to the national grid.
If we look at the technologies that are inherent in these two major systems, they are mostly dependent on the ever developing branch of engineering i.e. Electrical Engineering.
Few such technological challenges in development of EVs are:
And few such technological challenges in Micro grid are:
The vision of our MRU is to strive continuously to develop the branch of Electrical Engineering so as to bring out students capable of meeting such technical challenges and to fill the gap between the need of the Society and development in Engineering & Technology.
