HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING LAB

At HPC labs, we aim to research to address future needs of high-end parallel computing. Rapid advancements in VLSI technology have ushered a new era in system design, by integrating many systems in a single framework. This makes the whole system much more powerful than it used to be earlier. It has, in turn, enabled us to solve even those problems which hardly had practical significance in the past. Our vision is to develop such high-performance, practical solutions, and contribute to the needs of both scientific and engineering community.

PC LAB

PC Lab provides general computing facilities to students of Electrical Engineering and Reliability Engineering. Both Windows and Linux machines are present in the lab. In addition, a load-balanced server (Rudra) is available for heavier computational use. Software packages like MATLAB, Lyx, Scilab, Spice, Ansys, Sequel, Grace, etc. are installed on Rudra. You can use them for your (academic) work. Standard Linux/unix packages, such as LaTeX, mysql, etc are also available. In addition to Rudra Pclab also provides mail service with a central storage of 500MB to all students and faculty of the department. Team of System Adminstrators provide the tech-end support to the department. All the network infrastructure in the department is maintained the team.

Ongoing Projects

Past Projects

Distributed spacecraft formation flight using limited information exchange

Project Detail: The aims of this project may be summarized below: 1. To design stable formation control laws, and attitude synchronization laws for spacecrafts using bearing-only information from its neighbours within a given time. 2. To design stable formation control laws, and attitude synchronization laws for spacecrafts using distance-only information from its neighbours within a given time. 3. To design stable formation control laws, and attitude synchronization laws for spacecrafts using a mix of distance-only and bearing-only information from its neighbours within a given time. 4. To analyze the kind of rigid formations achievable with the proposed control law for different types of communication topology. 5. To be able to decouple the attitude synchronization and the formation control laws. 6. To explore potential applications of the proposed laws to space debris management, remote sensing, docking, etc. 6. To provide some form of proof of concept for the proposed control laws.
