                      Power electronics is the electronics which is used to convert power from one form to another. It is the key technology in many applications like electric vehicles (EVs), renewable energies, power quality improvement, home appliances, power supply for different consumer electronics, battery charging, industrial drives, etc. In present times, knowledge and experience in power electronics hardware design is essential for engineers of disciplines like electrical and electronics engineering.

                   PCB (printed circuit board) and hardware design are one of the main requirements for many power electronics-related jobs. Students are usually familiar with very novice methods of PCB and electronic hardware designing. However, industry-grade PCB and hardware designing require knowledge of several concepts and tools which are generally not covered in any undergraduate or postgraduate curriculum. This workshop intends to bridge this gap and give hands-on training on standard PCB and hardware designing methods required for industries.

                  The workshop is going to give hands-on training on complete PCB designing – circuit simulation, making component library, good schematic practices, multi-layer PCB designing, making planes and polygons, DRC(design rule check) and ERC (electrical rule check) settings, cross-probing, layout rules, signal integrity, different types of grounds, routing mixed signal PCB and power electronic PCB, etc.

                  For hardware designing, the workshop is going to provide knowledge of – various commonly used electronic components, their important specifications and how to read datasheets, how to understand big schematics, different packages and corresponding footprints of electronic components, resources to obtain examples of existing designs and finding components, how to avoid ground loops, etc.

                 The workshop is going to give hands-on training on soldering PCB, testing hardware, and how to use equipment like oscilloscopes, function generators, probes, etc. Further, knowledge of microcontroller programming is always helpful for power electronic designs.

                   Therefore, the workshop also intends to give hands-on training on introductory microcontroller programming.




• Familiarity with electronic components

2.    Applicants shall be selected based on shortlisting criteria decided by an empowered committee of IIT Guwahati. The decision of which shall be final

3.    The first list of shortlisted candidates will be offered a seat in the Hands-on workshop by June 5, 2023

4.    The shortlisted candidates need to accept the offer, by submitting a Demand Draft (DD) of Rs. 4000/-. This deposit is for reserving the seat in the Hands-on workshop. The details of DD must be uploaded online within 2 days of receiving the offer.

5.    If the shortlisted candidate fails to submit the details of DD within the stipulated time, it will be assumed that the candidate is not interested to attend the workshop. And the offer shall be given to the next candidate in the list of applicants

6.    It must be noted that applicants are not being charged any fee for the workshop. The DD of Rs. 4000/- will not be encashed till June 30th 2023. AFTER SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION of the workshop by the candidate, DD SHALL BE RETURNED TO THE CANDIDATE ON 30th JUNE 2023, by hand at IIT Guwahati. The DD is taken only to ensure full participation and to avoid “no-show up by participants” and seats remaining vacant at the workshop.

7.    If a candidate after accepting the offer does not show up in the workshop or shows up and does not complete the workshop, then his/her DD will not be returned and shall be encashed by IIT Guwahati. Under no circumstances, the received DD shall be sent back via post. 

8.    Candidates are supposed to send the DD only after they receive the offer and not at the time of application.

9.    Travel allowance  (TA) will be given to participants as per GoI norms. Accommodation will be provided as per availability of hostels. 


 Research scholars and post graduate students with background in electrical or electronics or related areas. The applicant should be a bonafide student of an accredited institute/college/university in India.


Participants attending all sessions successfully will be provided SERB KARYASHALA course completion certificate.
