PetrSU teams in the 2021 energy laboratory – India Education | Latest Education News | Global education news
Students of the Physico-Technical Institute under the supervision of lecturers from the Department of Energy Supply of Companies and Energy Savings D.Ye. Petrushina and EA Zavarkina are participating online in the Energy Laboratory 2021 acceleration program, which was opened at the Irkutsk National Technical Research University on the basis of the Technopark.
The Irkutsk National Technical Research University, in collaboration with the Russian energy company EuroSibEnergo, carries out for the fourth time the energy laboratory acceleration program, which has been created for the benefit of the companies of the En + group since 2018 .
Compared to last year, the number of participating teams increased from 28 to 35 teams. In addition, compared to last year, the number of participating universities increased – from 7 to 9, the number of participating cities from 5 to 7. This year, Irkutsk, Bratsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod , Voronezh and Petrozavodsk will become participating cities.
As part of the program, participants will have presentation sessions, where teams will meet experts to discuss cases, an educational intensive and the highlight of the program – excursions to production facilities (hydroelectric power stations, thermal power plants and others ) in order to progress in the development of their design solutions.
In order to receive the coveted scholarships, participants will need a lot of energy, but first they will need to answer one of the main questions: “Why are they participating in the Energy Lab Acceleration Program?” We wish the participants a productive solution to the cases in order to reach the final and obtain the coveted grant for the implementation of projects,
– noted the organizers of the event.
The issues developed by the teams at the PetrSU Physico-Technical Institute relate to the following themes: “Use of low potential energy sources in hydroelectric power stations (waste heat from HPP equipment)”; “Alternative methods of thermal insulation of pipelines”; “Reduce the cost of clearing roads from JSC’s overhead power lines (OHL)” IESK “from tree and shrub vegetation (DKR)”.
Denis Petroshin, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Business Energy Supply and Energy Saving at the Physico-Technical Institute, noted:
For students, this is a very good format for ‘extracurricular’ activities – it familiarizes students with the real special tasks facing the industry today and helps the event organizers to provide a take a fresh look at the problem identified.
