Plasma research lab

Plasma research lab has been set up to conduct the research activities broadly in the area of high voltage engineering, insulation engineering, environmental engineering. Currently the lab has the following facilities, 50 kV, 50 Hz AC (RE Make), Electrostatic voltmeter (Trek 341b), 100 kV potential divider (RE Make), Plasma chamber (up to 500 mbar pressure withstanding). Currently working on the following projects

  1. Plasma assisted electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide
  2. Understanding the corona induced degradation of polymeric insulators
  3. Plasma based indoor air purifiers
  4. Image processing for electrical discharges
