K. L. E. Societys Smt. Chanabasamma Ishwarappa Munavalli Polytechnic, HUBLI was established in the year 1984 by prestigious educational society of South India, the KARNATAKA LINGAYAT EDUCATION SOCIETY, BELGAUM. The college is situated on Pune – Bangalore National Highway, adjacent to several prominent education institutions. The area is called Vidyanagar, owing to the most conducive atmosphere prevalent for academic perseverance. The college is housed in an imposing building with all the modern architecture and lush green lawns on its campus.
Electrical & Electronics Engineering Department
It is very true that today life without electricity is highly unimaginable. It is very essential for any institution or firm to have a good power control and maintenance of all the activities for the smooth running of the institution. This is one of the most basic branch and has always remained one of the vital body of any institution or firm. This branch has been started with the strong intention that within the course of 3 years in the branch, the students must be capable to understand the generation, utilization maintenance as well as improving the quality of electricity. By this knowledge our department is not only trying to build a perfect base in the mindset of the students to cope up with the changing technologies, but also making them able to provide or emerge with new modifications and ideas so as to make the use of energy in safer manner
HISTORY of Electrical engineering
Electricity has been a subject of scientific interest since at least the early 17th century. The first electrical engineer was probably William Gilbert who designed the versorium: a device that detected the presence of statically charged objects. He was also the first to draw a clear distinction between magnetism and static electricity and is credited with establishing the term electricity. In 1775 Alessandro Volta’s scientific experimentations devised the electrophorus, a device that produced a static electric charge, and by 1800 Volta developed the voltage pile, a forerunner of the electric battery.
However, it was not until the 19th century that research into the subject started to intensify. Notable developments in this century include the work of Georg Ohm, who in 1827 quantified the relationship between the electric current and potential difference in a conductor, Michael Faraday, the discoverer of electromagnetic induction in 1831, and James Clerk Maxwell, who in 1873 published a unified theory of electricity and magnetism in his treatise Electricity and Magnetism.
From the 1830s, efforts were made to apply electricity to practical use in telegraphy. By the end of the 19th century the world had been forever changed by the rapid communication made possible by engineering development of land-line,underwater and, eventually, wireless telegraphy.
Practical applications and advances in such fields created an increasing need for standardized units of measure; it led to the international standardization of the units ohm,volt,ampere,coulomb and watt. This was achieved at an international conference in Chicago 1893. The publication of these standards formed the basis of future advances in standardization in various industries, and in many countries the definitions were immediately recognized in relevant legislation.
During these years, the study of electricity was largely considered to be a subfield of physics. It was not until the late 19th century that universities started to offer degree in electrical engineering.
