About the Lab:

An Electrical machines lab is a facility where students(UG) studying electrical engineering or related fields can gain hands-on experience with various electrical machines (AC/DC) and devices. This lab is designed to provide practical knowledge and skills related to the operation, testing, and analysis of electrical machines commonly used in industries and applications. It also plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical skills for students pursuing careers in electrical engineering and related fields.


The key equipments in this lab are:

  • Transformers (100:50, 100:86.6, 100:120)
  • Auto Transformers
  • DC Machines
  • Induction Motors
  • Synchronous Machines
  • AC & DC Drives
