GUEST LECTURE ON "DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTROMAGNETIC DEVICES FOR FAST BREEDER REACTOR" | Event Date: Thursday, 7th, February 2019
The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering organized a guest lecture on “Development of Electromagnetic Devices for Fast Breeder Reactor Application” on 7 February 2019. Whilst Dr. Uppu Ramachandraiah, Professor & Head, Department of Electrical Sciences emphasized the need for Industry-Institute interaction, Dr. Baby Joseph, Dean-Research stressed the importance of research in renewable energy sector and its dissemination to society. He encouraged participation in active and collaborative research. Dr. B. K. Nashine, Associate Director, IGCAR, Kalpakkam was the resource person for the day.
Dr. Nashine gave an overview of developments carried out in the field of Electromagnetic devices for Fast Breeder Reactor application at IGCAR under his initiative. Some of the major devices discussed at the session were: DC Conduction Pump, Annular Linear Induction Pump, AC Conduction Pump, Magnetic Flow Meters, and Level Probes.
