Projects Undertaken

Undergraduate Level

Configuring Intellectual Property(IP) For Different Applications

-Created a FPGA based motor control system which was developed using MATLAB/Simulink Toolbox and Xilinx system generator. Blocks were logically created for frequently used techniques in motor control such as Hysteresis control, Frequency to speed control and Pulse Width Modulation(PWM) and hence VHDL code was generated

-An Intellectual Property (IP) was further developed and was fed into an FPGA board. The created IP core is reusable and allows engineers to concentrate more on the control part of the system

Solar Tracking System

-Worked on the prototype model as a project leader of a team of three members. The purpose of this project was to get all day efficiency from a solar panel. In order to allow the movement of the solar panel with the direction of sunlight, Aurdino kit was used to control the angle of the panel with the help of Servo motor. My role was to program the codes and troubleshooting.
