General

Dear Engineering Students,
I am Shankar, did my M.Tech in Power and Control from IIT Kanpur, B.Tech from JNTU Kakinada Campus and Diploma from Andhra Polytechnic Kakinada.
I worked in General Electric, Hyderabad for 6 years in the field of renewable energy sources. At present, delivering number of lectures in the field of power electronics (since 2007) and delivered lectures in Control systems as well (in the past) especially for GATE/ESE/PSUs. This blog is to explore the various opportunities for electrical engineering students especially preparing for competitive exams. I would like to utilize this blog as platform to share information as much as I can and requesting the continuous feed back for the improvement. I am maintaining this blog after my busy schedule as part of social service and giving back something to the society. If you like it, you can also be part of it

Thanks
BNSS Shankar

Thanks to I1A

Dear I1A students,
As I promised in the beginning of the class, we completed our journey very smoothly without using the word "Silence please". I am satisfied with your discipline in the class. I will have this feeling in very few batches.
As you have responded well, I have given daily questions for your practice.
One student (Name: Teja) helped me in consolidating all the questions and you can download here for your future reference. Thanks for his efforts.
I wish you all the best for your future.
Thanks for your cooperation to have very good sessions
