A few of the achievements of the Institution:

WIND MILL BLADE DESIGN

  • Ms.Anusha R - CEO, Park Institutions (Right)
  • Mr.V.Karthik (Center) - Student, (He was a B.E student when the innovation made, now he is Pursuing M.E)
  • Mr.K.Prasanna Venkatesh (Left) - Assistant Professor.

Park College of Engineering and Technology students and staff have been awarded patent by the Indian Patent Office for designing low-speed wind mill blade. The design has the potential to produce power at 3m/sec wind velocity and stands out from the ones already available in the windmill industry.

A P Haran, K Prasanna, P Mani and Karthik V were awarded the patent for designing the Wind mill blade. While Haran and Prasanna are faculty members of the Aeronautical Engineering Department. Mani Bharathi and Karthik are alumni of the Institution, who worked on the project for almost three years.

Mani bharathi and Karthik who belong to the 2008-2012 batch of BE Aeronautical engineering, were keen on doing something in the field of renewable energy. "There were long power cuts during the period and everyone was looking for alternative sources for power. Solar and wind energy started gaining Importance at that time," said Karthik. This was the motivation for the duo to suggest an idea to A P Haran, the dean of Mechanical sciences.

The Student along with Prasanna K, an assistant professor with the aeronautical engineering department, studied some designs made by Indian windmill companies, and some designs from China and Japan too.

"We found that windmills had difficulty producing power at low wind velocity and this was the challenge we took up for our design," said Bharathi. The team then identified parameters like weight, material and aerodynamics of the blade.

Initially, the team had designed a blade with glass fibre composites and it weighed 4.7kg. "This was the first challenge we faced. So we replaced a section of the blade with an "I" section. This reduced the weight to 2.4kg, giving us a huge boost in the design," said Prasanna. Further, the team introduced 25 crores sections in the blade, and improved the resin used in the material.

Dean Haran said that they attempted to sell the blade design to some windmill companies, but had a better offer waiting for them. "At least two companies from the state approached us to buy the design. While we were deliberating the idea to consider the proposal. We received a letter from the Union ministry of new and renewable energy," Haran said. The ministry wanted the team to work with an electrical company in Bengaluru on improving the design to make a high-power generating windmill.

FLEXIBLE HUMAN CRUTCH


(From L to R) 2nd from Left - Prof G Mohan Kumar, Principal, PCET, 3rd from left - Ms.Anusha, CEO, Park Institutions, 4th from Left - Mr.L Sriram, S Boobaalan, (2011-2015 batch) Mechanical department, PCET

Mr.Sriram and Mr.S Boobaalan, Mechanical department of PCET (2011-2015 batch) developed a human crutch to help physically challenged persons to climb staircase. Applied for Patent rights and is awaited. The innovation also bagged award at ICTACT Bridge 2015.

A tripod walking device which is slightly different from the universally used crutch which are rigid and put forth more efforts. This new model liberalize the effort of single leg defected persons. This project has modified tripod leg in which one of the leg is adjustable. This provides flexibility while walking on the irregular areas and staircases. It has a handle that can be rotated either side which will be useful while walking up and down the stairs. This project mainly aimed at helping single leg defected persons to walk comfortably. A Mechanical pin lock system is provided for releasing or locking system for ordinary walking and staircase walking mode.

WORKING PRINCIPLE:

It consists of an ordinary tripod leg but the front leg is replaced by a leg in which ball lock mechanism is provided. The leg made up of hollow sphere having a pin. A solid cylinder having a long vertical slot for the easy up and down movement pin. This solid cylinder also has slots at standard intervals along the circumference of it where the pin moves to get locked. The location of the circumferential slots depends on the height of staircase. A spring is provided at the top of while climbing up the staircase the person places two rigid legs of tripod leg in the lower step and changes the stroke length of third leg and places it on the upper staircase to which he was to go.

The elbow crutch attached to this kit can be rotated and locked in opposite position. while climbing down from the stairs there is a loss of balance. So the two rigid legs are made to act as front leg by rotating the elbow crutch. The bottom of the legs are provided with bushes which provides balance for walking.

The complete setup is made-up of aluminium which reduces the weight and has sufficient strength to bear the heavy loads. Another important feature of using this material is that it is rust free.
