The team consisting of Hriday Agrawal, Mohit Tuteja, and Umesh Sikka, final year Electrical Engineering Students, recently represented Punjab Engineering College in the Grand Finale of Bajaj’s OHM challenge, conducted on 15th March 2024. Bajaj recently conducted a Torque and Ohm challenge with over 1200 participating teams from 29 prestigious engineering campuses in India, including some top IITs, NITs, IISc Bangalore and PEC Chandigarh.

The finale took place in the Bajaj Headquarters in Pune. These 3 students became Grand Finalist & Campus Winner and had won Rs. 30,000/- as cash prize which was felicitated by Dr. Christian Danz (CTO of Chetak Technology Limited), Mr. Ram Tilak (TnV Head), and Mr. Kailash Zanzari (Head of manufacturing from the Bajaj group). The team of students from Punjab Engineering College Chandigarh presented a meticulously devised traction system design, incorporating an inverter to power a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) with a specified input voltage. The design addressed critical challenges, including the restricted bending radius of connecting cables resulting from high power transmission, the development of an appropriate control strategy for the inverter, and the operation of the system under conditions of low input voltage. Electric vehicles are becoming popular in India and the proposed system will assist in making EVs cheaper, more powerful, and safer, giving buyers a good return on investment. The contest tested cognitive skills, decision-making in EV (Electric Vehicle) design, and innovative thinking. The students attributed their hard work to the meticulous mentorship of Dr. Shimi S.L. and Dr. Ajay Singh from the Department of Electrical Engineering in the domain of EVs.

Director of PEC, Prof. (Dr.) Baldev Setia congratulated the winning team and wished them good luck for their future in the field of research, innovation and technology. Prof. In Charge, CDGC, Dr. Poonam Saini, faculty coordinator, Dr. Ankit Yadav and Registrar PEC, Col. R.M Joshi encouraged the students to further validate their accomplishments and motivated them to continue their meaningful contributions in the domain of electric vehicle technology in India. The whole PEC Family is feeling proud of them.
