Energy Management and Microgrid Laboratory

Our mission statement

We aim to provide facilities for teaching and research in the field of power and transportation systems, control and protection analysis. We also cater for the undergraduate experiments in the above areas and provide research facilities to a number of postgraduate and undergraduate final year students.


Our main research activities are in the field of Power Systems Control and protection analysis. Intelligent Power Distribution Automation and Intelligent System Design and Operation Optimisation of MRT Systems are a few among the various research projects that are happening in our lab.

At undergraduate level, we provide laboratory experiments for the following modules: ·Semester I-EE4501 Power Systems Analysis and Protection.
Semester II- EE4504 Power Systems Dynamics and Control


We are currently developing a Hybrid SmartGrid for research and institutional purposes, watch out this space for more updates.
