Solid Oxide Fuel Cells


Triboelectric NanoGenerators

Course Objective

The objective of this course is to provide an advanced understanding of electroceramics for the application of energy conversion and storage. Further, the course intends to render an understanding of physics and chemistry behind the designing of electroceramic materials. The importance of these electroceramics will be discussed with respect to various sustainable energy technologies like fuel cells, thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics, pyroelectrics. Furthermore, the utilization of electroceramics in energy storage applications, such as, Li/Na-ion batteries, high-energy density capacitors will be reviewed. State-of-the-art problems and challenges will be explained to provide a better appreciation of electroceramic materials and devices.

Registration Fees

a. Faculty from University / Academic Institutions under QIP program

There is no course fee for faculties from AICTE approved Engineering Colleges. Participants will be paid to and fro train fare (AC 3-Tier) via the shortest route (strictly upon production of the ticket) as well as free boarding and lodging in the guest house/hostels at IIT Kanpur. The Participants are required to get their applications duly recommended by the Head of the Institution/Department. The selected candidates will be required to send a refundable caution deposit of Rs. 1000 to ensure their commitment for participation in the course. This amount will be refunded only to those candidates who attend the course. However only 30 candidates under QIP can avail this on the first-cum-first-serve basis. Rest of the candidates can attend the course by paying the registration fees as described below.

* Faculties of Polytechnic Colleges can not apply under QIP Category.

b. NON-QIP Candidates

Teachers not selected for QIP funding may choose to finance themselves to attend the course. Registration fees of Rs. 8000 + 18% GST (= Rs. 9440) will be payable.

Students in Universities / AICTE recognised Colleges/ Academic Institutions can also attend this course . A registration fees of Rs. 5000 + 18% GST (= Rs. 5900) will be payable.

Non-QIP participants will also have to bear their expenses on accommodation and food. Accommodation can be arranged in students hostels or guesthouse on payment basis.

c. Participants from Industry/ R&D Labs

Private and public sector companies and other R & D organizations are welcome to depute their executives, managers, researchers and engineers to participate in course. The sponsoring organizations are required to pay a course fee of Rs. 12000 + 18% GST (= Rs. 14160). The participants will have to make their own arrangements for travel.
