Dr.Kallol Roy gave the inaugural address highlighting the safety instrumentation which is the foremost important aspect in any industry particularly in the power plants like nuclear power plants. Then he elaborated the gap between the instrumentation and Safety instrumentation explaining that both goes hand-in-hand. Followed by the inaugural address, Mr.V.Balasubramaniyan gave a special note to the young minds and the faculty members. He also expressed his thanks to the management for inviting him to deliver a special address. After Tea break around 11:00 AM, the session started with the presentation of Dr.Kallol Roy, Chairman and Managing Director, BHAVINI, Kalpakkam on “Aspects in Safety Instrumentation Design”. Dr.Roy elaborately explained about the importance of safety in many instruments and also the change in connections that has to be incorporated in a device for achieving guaranteed safety. He also elucidated about safety in data transfer from sensor to control (i.e.) process data that is being transferred from field to the control room. He added that process data transmitted should ensure hundred percent safety, if misused it will have a greater consequence. Finally he addressed about the emerging field IoT (Internet of Things) which has application in almost all fields of the engineering and medicine. At last he concluded with gratitude and wished the students a good luck for their future endeavor. The second session of the seminar began with the presentation of Mr.V.Balasubramaniyan on the topic “Introduction to Indian Nuclear Power Programme and Challenges in Safety Research”.

Mr. Balasubramaniyan elaborated about the overall power production in the world and rank of India. He also briefed about various form of available power production and its suitability for different countries. He elaborated the challenges and safety concerns in the nuclear power plant and future projects that are going to be established. Finally at the end of the session the students actively volunteered with various queries and got clarified the same from the experts At the end of the session, the participants shared their feedback about the seminar. Dr.G.Ilavazhagan, Director (Research) and Dr.Uppu Ramachandraiah, Professor and Head, Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering honored the guests with a memento as a token of gratitude. The program ended up with vote of thanks by Dr.Uppu Ramachandraiah, Professor and Head, Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering.

Post lunch the dignitaries visited the Centre for Sensors and Process Control(CENSE) in the Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering.Mr.G.Muthukumaran, Associate Professor, Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering explained the various projects carried out in the centre. The dignitaries were happy to see the demonstration of the projects. They also visited all the laboratories in the department and appreciated the infrastructure mentioning that the laboratories are well equipped and modernized. They also added that these laboratories will be a platform for students and faculty to carry out their projects and research work.
