A Technological Revolution in Rotation Technology

A path breaking technology developed by Chandrashekhar, an alumnus of OUCE is aimed at bringing revolution in Rotation Technology in all sectors. It brings dividends multi-fold over the existing motors leaving them tar behind in terms of weight input energy losses. reliability, longevity heat dissipation, eco trendiness. higher productivity. cheaper and has immerse meaningful applications. This technology is now under demonstration in various sectors of Industry through developing various applications. One such application is a Domestic Ceiling Fan. 

Unique features of the domestic ceiling fan are as follows: 
1. Power consumption is less than 30 watts against the existing Fan which uses 50-60 watts when it is new. 
2. Works with direct DC source without using an inverter board.
 3. No stator or rotor which is made up of laminations. 
4. Uses very few copper turnings n the electromagnets approximately 50gms of 20 gauge copper wire. Normal Fan uses 180 gms of 36 gauge copper windings.
 5 Water proof, electric shock proof. 
6. Easily portable and can be used where there is no power supply from the electricity board. 
7. Runs directly using a solar panel without a battery or an inverter board. 
8. No condenser is employed. Instead an Infrared sensor and a solid state relay are used 
9. Zero heat dissipation noticed from the copper turnings even after running continuously for 6 hours. 10.5 Years warranty for parts. 
11. Speed can be varied with a potentiometer. 
12. DC source can be a normal 12 volts battery. or a 12 volts solar panel. or use a battery eliminator available in the market.

Real time non-invasive Haemoglobin Measuring Device

Haemoglobin (lib) concentration below normal results in a reduced oxygen-carrying capacity of blood cells and is called anaemia. In its severe form, anaemia is associated with many debilitating symptoms such as erratic heartbeat, dizziness and exhaustion. Anaemia affects two billion people worldwide and is responsible for an estimated 20 per cent of maternal deaths each year. The anaemic condition is undiagnosed due to lack of awareness apart from not having sufficient pathological labs. 

Currently invasive clinical methods are being used to calculate haemoglobin levels. To conduct laboratory tests blood sample is extracted from the patient and then analysed using different reagents. This procedure causes pain and discomfort to the patient which is undesirable. Another disadvantage of this method is the delay between the blood collection and its analysis. Apart from these common problems, because of human intervention the samples may be interchanged and also improper disposal of the sample may spread communicable diseases and environmental pollution. 

All the above problems can be overcome by a non-invasive point-of-care device. Users place their finger in to the wearable finger clip integrated with optical sensory mechanism. The signals obtained are sent to the device. where the device analyses the absorption levels of the tissue at pre-defined wavelengths to obtain anaemia levels. Preliminary results indicate the accuracy levels as high as 95 per cent. n controlled group (normal population. students of our department) in a lab setup. 

Our research outcome is a paradigm shifting solution that can transform the screening and diagnosis of anaemia especially in low resource environments, especially remote areas. As anaemia is easily treatable at an early stage. we hope that our device improves heath condition by enabling prompt. targeted treatment. Our product has the potential to impose health-care for millions of people in developing countries by targeting one of the most common and neglected diseases in the world. 

The developed device has the following advantages:

 • Simple & Portable

 • Instant result 

• Non-Invasive

 • No Biological wastes

 • Easy to Operate 

• Easily Accessible

 • Cost Effective 

• Robust to Indian conditions

THE ENERGY HAWK (Indian Patent no. 201641043144)

In India it is estimated that power distribution losses are approximately 40-50% of which non-technical factors like poor billing infrastructure. Power theft by meter tampering etc. account for 20-25%. This results in huge financial loss for utilities. On the other hand, at consumers point energy wastage is rampant due to lack of real time awareness on consumption and inability to remotely control their appliances. As existing solutions are complex and costly, Nikhil Nakka aimed at developing a plug and play network enabled low cost, simple and smart metering infrastructure as a one stop solution for utilities and consumers which results in a direct benefit of financial saving for both utilities and consumers and an indirect benefit of improved coordination among various elements of power grids resulting in increased efficiency and effective utilization of scarce energy resources in the country by minimizing carbon footprints.
