WHAT IS ELECTRIKA ?

Power electronics are so prevalent in our daily life that they cannot be ignored. Right from the Power source to basic things like a phone charger, everything uses Power electronics. Wanna get hands-on experience in this exciting field of Power electronics ? IEEE NITK presents to you a Hardware Power Electronics Hackathon, where you will get to use your creativity and design new circuits. The theme for the hackathon and the preceding events will be Power Electronics Everyday.


ROUNDS


ROUND 1

Round 1 is an online design competition that involves writing an elaborate Design document on the problem statement which involves detailed description on selection of the topology, components, etc. The criteria for clearing the next round will clearly be based on the performance of the team in this design round's problem statement.



ROUND 2

Round 2 involves competition between 5 teams selected from the previous round to compete on actual hardware implementation. Teams will be given a problem statement on which they are supposed to work on with a limited set of resources. The team which clears the round which satisfies most of the criteria from the problem statement ends up being the winner of the hackathon Electrika 2022.



WHO IS ELIGIBLE ?

We would like to open the First Edition of Electrika to the Mangalore Sub Section region. A team can have a maximum of four members from 2nd and 3rd year only. The registration is free for everyone.
