Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturing Association (IEEMA) had organised World Electricity Forum “ELECRAMA 2016” during February 13th to February 17th 2016 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bangalore. In this global gathering, eminent persons from various sectors met to discuss the future challenges in power sector, direction to shape the contours of the future power network and to identify young innovators from leading technical institutions of India through Engineering Infinite project competition.
In Engineering Infinite (EI 16) Project competition, more than 15,000 teams were applied from all over India for the ELECRAMA 2016. In Round I, 500 teams were shortlisted out of which 20 teams from Sri Manakula Vinayagar Engineering College. In Round II, 70 teams were selected as the final participants for the National Level project competition. In this regard, 5 teams with a total of 18 students from Sri Manakula Vinayagar Engineering College belong to the department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (final year) were selected and received financial grant of Rs.2,00,000 by IEEEMA for developing project models. These 5 teams were the largest group of students from a single college in the ELECRAMA project competition 2016.
Various Industrial executives visited and appreciated those projects. In the Final event of the project competition “Innovation day ” was celebrated in which Special project recognition award was given to the project titled “Design and fabrication of high frequency pulse transformer using soft magnetic composite” done by Chitrabalan.M , Manikandan.A , Kathir.A and Vigneshwaran. S, the students of Sri Manakula Vinayagar Engineering College belonging to Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department under the guidance of Dr.K.VijayaKumar.
These award winning students were appreciated for their innovative work by Sri Manakula Vinayagar Educational Trust Chairman and Managing Director Shri. M.Dhanasekaran, Vice chairman Shri. S.V.Sugumaran, Secretary Dr.K.Narayanaswamy, Director cum Principal Dr.V.S.K.Venkatachalapathy, Head of the Department Dr.S.Anbumalar and the faculties belonging to the department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering
