According to the institute, CoBE will also collaborate with various cell manufacturers from across the world, procure cells and characterise them to create a knowledge centre on available cells, providing industry with valuable data to select appropriate solutions. It will work on developing the next generation of smart battery chargers and Battery Management protocols. By working on the design configurations, and packaging cells into modules differently, optimisation studies on batteries for different lifetime for different applications will be undertaken.

 

Jalihal said, “The CoBE is carrying out exciting multi-disciplinary research work in several areas related to battery and electric vehicles including battery management systems, battery testing, battery charging and developing national standards for communication between EV and the cloud servers. The CoBE also provides policy inputs to the national Electric Vehicles program. Potentially, the research can lead to greatly reducing India's dependency on imported oil, to reducing environmental pollution, to greater employment opportunities and to global leadership position."

How to score AIR 1 for GATE ???

Atharv Mungikar 2nd Dec, 2019

Hello Harshal,

It is very important to score good marks in GATE and what you are going for is AIR 1. You need to relax, eat well, sleep well and have a lot of faith and confidence in what you are doing. Revise as much as possible. Remember, GATE Question patterns do repeat in all years so make yourself through with Previous year Papers. As they say that practice makes the man perfect, so you also need to practice a lot to crack GATE with a high score.

I hope it helped.

All the best.

Is IIT Madras accepting MAT score for 2020 admissions?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 23rd Nov, 2019
Hello.
Yes IIT Madras is accepting mat score as per the previous year evidence and we cannot surely say it will continue to accept this score in  future because there is no announcement as such so still for having admission in IIT Madras girstly you need to have 60% marks in your graduation for general category and for SC/ ST and OBC category this is 55%, for having a call letter from IIT Madras a candidate probably must have 96 + percentile in mat for the convenience you should be fall under 92 to 93 percentile, and you may also have call letter at 95 percentile.
Best of luck.
