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

Dear All,
The most awaiting TSTRANSCO - AE notification came finally on 28 Dec, 2017.
Click here download the notification.
Syllabus:  Electrical       Electronics         Civil
Some highlights:
  • Last date for application is 16 Feb, 2018.
  • Examination date is 11 March, 2018.
  • Number of vacancies: Electrical - 250, Civil - 49 and Electronics - 31.
Important note to the candidates is that there is major change in the syllabus in comparing with TSTRANSCO 2015 notification:

Here is the quick summary:
  1. Engineering Mathematics, Signals & systems, Electromagnetic Fields subjectsare added in the Technical portion. This is first time in TRANSCO exam. This is GATE syllabus.
  2. In 2015, Switchgear equipment & Protection was a separate chapter. But in 2017, it is merged in Powersystems chapter. This is also as per GATE syllabus pattern.
  3. In 2015, Utilization chapter was there. But is removed now
  4. In 2015, Drives portion was there in PE subject. But only power electronics now. Drives portion is removed. This is also as per GATE syllabus pattern.
  5. In 2015, Non - conventional energy: Solar, wind and Bio mass chapter was there. But this is removed. 
Overall, my conclusion is  TS TRANSCO 2017 AE syllabus is GATE syllabus. Whoever prepared for GATE exam, this AE notification is golden opportunity as this exam is scheduled in March.
