The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) at SRM University-AP is organising an invited lecture in collaboration with the technical society Automatic Control & Dynamic Optimization Society (ACDOS) on August 28, 2021. Prof. Sukumar Mishra from IIT Delhi will speak on the topic of “Issues in grid-connected PV system” at 11.00 am on that day via zoom. Vice-Chancellor of SRM University-AP Prof Vajja Sambasiva Rao, Associate Deans and Faculty members of the EEE department will be the panellists of the event.
Automatic Control & Dynamic Optimization Society (ACDOS) was established in the year 2011 with a noble objective to promote automatic control and dynamic optimisation discipline in academia and industry across India. The society aims to host international conferences and technical workshops regularly in order to promote close interaction between industry and academia. The society also participates in curriculum development for graduate and undergraduate studies in addition to facilitating productive research in this field. The society volunteers to honour eminent persons who excelled in this field in industry and academic circles.
