Two teams from Charusat selected in the Grand final round in SSIP 2019-20
Two teams from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Chandubhai S. Patel Institute of Technology affiliated to Charotar University of Science and Technology (CHARUSAT) at Changa has reached the grand final round of Smart Gujarat for New India Hackathon 2019- 20 (SSIP 2019-20).
Around 1600 teams from Gujarat participated in the regional round under 2019-20. Out of which only 242 teams were selected in the grand final round. In which two teams of Electrical Engineering Department, CSPIT, CHARUSAT were selected.
The first team of Electrical Engineering students created a prototype hardware model for “Automatic Meter Reading and Billing to issue Monthly billing instead of bi-monthly billing” and the second team created a prototype hardware model for “Energy Measurement and Control System”
To help start-up innovation, the Government of Gujarat has launched a scheme called Smart Gujarat for New India Hackathon. Starting the registration in this scheme in 2019-20, the principal of CSPIT Dr. A. D. Patel, and Head of Electrical Engineering Department Dr. Nilay Patel gave permission to students to participate.
One team Mentor Vibha Parmar (Assistant Professor) and the other team Mentor Maulik J. Shah (Assistant Professor) encouraged the students of both the teams by providing proper guidance.
A team of three students Raj Shivraj Singh Balwant Singh, Shah Parth Satish Kumar and Shukal Shaili Sanjeevbhai led by Mentor Assistant Professor Vibha Parmar worked on the problem statement “Automatic Meter Reading and Billing to issue Monthly billing instead of bi-monthly billing In which the students created prototype hardware that generates automatic electricity meter reading and monthly bill based on GSM SIM card. With the help
of which the customer will get the monthly used unit and bill amount on mobile.
While another team of three electrical students Hansalpara Kashyap Shaileshbhai, contractor Deep Ritesh and Trivedi Naitik Hasit led by Assistant Professor Maulik J. Shah, worked on the problem statement Energy Measurement and Control System.
They have created prototype hardware that reads and controls electricity meters online via the Internet. With the help of which the power company can get the information of electrical parameters such as voltage, current, frequency, etc. and energy consumption remotely.
