Description

     Fuel cell technology is one of the best methods to generate the green energy that can be used in automobiles to reduce the air pollution. It is the emerging technology to replace the conventional IC engines with fuel cells and to develop Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV). Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel cell is an electrochemical device that produces electrical energy using hydrogen and oxygen with zero pollution.     

     Only very few institutions in India have the Fuel cell test station facility and Nandha Engineering College is one among them. Two Patents have been filed and more than 10 research publications have been made in peer reviewed journals using this facility. In addition UG/PG students and Ph.D research scholars are also actively doing project works using this emerging technology.

ANTENNA RESEARCH LAB

Funding Agency                    : AICTE-Research Promotion Scheme

Funding Amount                   : Rs. 15,04,500/- (Rs.15.045 Lakhs)

Project Sanction Number     : 8-33/FDC/RPS/POLICY-1/2021-22 dated 18.02.2022

Project Title                           : Designing a Fully Textile Fractal Monopole Wearable

Antenna for Medical lmaging Applications

Project Period                        : 2021-2024

Principal Investigator           : Dr.C.N.Marimuthu, Professor (ECE) & Dean (R&D), NEC

Co- Principal Investigator    : Dr.R.Murugasami, Associate Professor/ECE, NEC

 

    The objective of this project is to design a compact, low profile, flexible, fully textile fractal monopole antenna for wireless body area network (WBAN) and medical body area network (MBAN).

    The outcome of this project is to design an antenna to detect, monitor bone fractures and sub-skin damages using microwave imaging technology (i.e.) transmitting RF signals in to body and receiving signals from different parts to reconstruct images of the body. The designed antenna will help patients to avoid ionized radiations due to conventional clinical methods like CT (Computed Tomography), US (Ultra Sound).
