Electrical Power Monitoring System 

IICB – Electrical Engineering Section is very much concerned about the Conservation of Electrical Energy. Followings are the different arrangements which are made to make the system Energy Efficient.

  1. Properly rated Capacitor Banks with Automatic Power Factor Control Panel incorporated in the Electrical Distribution system.
  2. Replaced the conventional Fluorescent Tube Lamps by Energy Efficient T-5 Lamps and LED Lighting fixtures.
  3. Occupancy Sensor based devices are installed in different locations to optimize Electrical Energy usages.
  4. Astronomical Time based Lighting systems are in use in the common areas within the Institute to achieve Energy Efficiency.
  5. Time based as well as Water Level based Control mechanism has been introduced in operation of Water Pumps to minimize the wastage of water due to overflow and also to optimize the consumption of Electrical Energy.


Associated Systems

  1. Addressable Fire System with more than 800 nos. different types of Fire Detectors installed at IICB, Jadavpur Campus to ensure safety against Fire Hazard.
  2. Close Circuit Television (CCTV) networks with different types of Cameras, DVRs, and Monitors etc. are installed at both the Institute Campuses (Jadavpur and Salt Lake).
  3. Contact Less and Biometric types Access Control System is in use to monitor the movements within the Animal House Facility area at IICB, Jadavpur Campus.
  4. Video Conferencing units are installed at Conference Rooms, Seminar Rooms, at IICB Salt Lake campus. Desktop type Video conferencing units are installed at Director’s offices at IICB Jadavpur & Salt Lake campus.  Modern Video Conferencing facility with multiple HD Cameras is in application at J C Ray-Auditorium, Jadavpur.
  5. Projection and associated systems are installed at Seminar Rooms located at both the Institute campuses at Jadavpur & Salt Lake.
