Skill Upgrade           back to overview

Skill Up-gradation Tutorial:                   Joint program with ESSCI,     

Unique program designed to cater to electronics associated with Lighting, Lighting Controls, and related systems like Solar PV Panels, Batteries, LED Drivers, Electronic Ballasts.

Lighting & Lighting equipment have undergone a very major change during the past 5 years and greater skill is required in handling them in matters of installation as well as maintenance. Electronic components in lighting systems are on the increase. The power system fault levels are also on the rise due due to large grid interconnections and overall increase in power generation.

Added factor for complexity arises from availability of more than one source of electricity (by standby systems such as DG Sets, Inverters and UPS systems even in small household systems. These complexities cause shock & fire hazards if there are any installation or maintenance lapses. The professionals handling these should therefore be trained to handle the electronics, multiple sources and lighting controls.

Light sources or Light fittings as well as the lighting controls, today, come with quite a bit of electronics, whether it is the conventional tube-light with an electronic ballast or a LED light with an electronic driver or a controller based on movement detection or a set of lights with central control from the building automation system. The routine maintenance or the minor fault repair not only requires the basic knowledge of electronics but also the ability to use sophisticated diagnostic instruments. The workman who undertakes the repair has to get his skills upgraded. This program addresses the same as per-cursor of the series of programs that ISLE will be coming with under the latest systems in co-operation with Skill Development Council of the Government of India.

That explains in brief the need for up-gradation of the skills of the professional. ISLE – KSC for the first time organized a tutorial program to cover these requirements.

The professionals will be trained by experts from the teaching and certification program developed by ESSCI, the industry and the academia.

Invitation for Papers           back to overview

Invitation for Papers for VISION 2020 Conference.
At NIMHANS Convention Center on November 4 & 6, 2016

VISION 2020, an event organized by The Karnataka State Center of Indian Society of Lighting Engineers  to facilitate Lighting professionals  to stay abreast of trends and changes will be held from 4th to 6th November, 2016 at NIMHANS Convention Centre, Bengaluru, India.
VISION series of Conference & Exhibitions are being held periodically since 2002 and has been the trend & pace setter for the next few years.
VISION brings together Academicians, Consultants, Designers / Architects Builders, Equipment and Material Manufacturers (of Lighting, Solar Energy, Electronic Controls, Ballasts & Drivers, Remote, central & networked controls, Special Bio-Medical Lighting products), Government & Public Sector Agencies, Project Managers, Educators, Researchers, Students, and other stake holders involved in Lighting as well as Light for betterment of Life from across the country.
Present Your Research on Recent Developments in Design and Construction Technologies of Light not only in the context of Lighting, but also in the broader context of better life.
VISION 2020 (to be held during Nov 2016), ‘The International Conference on Recent Developments in Smart Light’ presents academicians, research scholars and industry professionals an unique opportunity to share their research with the industry and academy.  Your presentation at VISION can be an important part of professionalization, and a chance to receive valuable feedback on your work, explain your methodology, respond to questions about your findings, deepen your understanding, see what your peers are researching, network, and gain valuable experience to highlight on your resume.

The following are the sub-themes for the Conference. Authors may indicate the keyword, tags and also identify the sub theme to which they consider their paper is targeted.

Workshop            back to overview

The  workshop has been organized with content oriented towards the needs of the engineering students. Today there is immense potential for the electronics enthusiast or the hobbyist to bring out solutions and products for lighting control. LED’s have also opened up a new area wherein the development of LED based applications in the college project laboratories is interesting and challenging.  The Workshop will be on November 6 from 10 AM to 1:30 PM to be followed by a panel discussion from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM. Participating mentors will be from the industry and the educational institutions. This is the first program of its kind and has been taken up as a part of VISION 2020 and is conceived to be the beginning of a continuous program of interaction between the students, hobbyists on one side and the experts from Industry and professors on the other side.

We do expect that the program will be unique and ISLE-KSC would facilitate this interaction between the two communities on a sustained basis.
