In this news, we discuss the First Indian Law Student Awarded US and Indian Patents.
JGU Student Receives US, Indian Patents For Revolutionary Electric Vehicle Battery Technology that promotes a sustainable environment New Technology can be applied in 153 countries! Sonipat, October 16, 2020: In an unprecedented development, an Indian law student at OP Jindal Global University (JGU) was awarded both the Indian and US patent for a technology he invented called “ Method and System for Managing the Usage of a Plurality of Battery units to power an electric vehicle ”. This technology aims to make the use of electric vehicles more convenient, flexible and economical in India and other developing countries. Mr. Devansh Manoj Jalan is currently pursuing his law studies at Jindal Global Law School. Mr. Devansh worked for a while on the development of this technology and in July 2019 filed for a provisional patent with the Indian Patent Office. After fine-tuning the technology, he filed for a patent with the Indian Patent Office and the US Patent and Trademark Office. After due process and hearings, Devansh received the US patent in September 2020 and the Indian patent in October 2020. The PCT application also reserves the right to patent this technology in 153 other countries. Professor (Dr) C.Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of OP Jindal Global University praised the achievement of Mr. Devansh Manoj Jalan and said, “At JGU, we always encourage our students to become leaders with a vision for the future of our world. . Typically, such patent achievements are seen in institutions that offer STEM disciplines. However, JGU’s institutional ecosystem has enabled non-STEM students like Devansh to think outside the box and seek out opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship that transcend disciplinary boundaries. This reinforces the importance of multidisciplinary education and the promotion of leadership talents that JGU offers, which has created transformational opportunities for its students and allowed them to create impact. It’s quite a unique and extraordinary achievement and I’m very proud of Devansh. I am indeed very proud to see our student develop a solution that has the potential to make rapid progress in the field of electric vehicles and to contribute to the future of a more sustainable and environmentally friendly world in which we aspire to live. Charging techniques heretofore known in vehicles utilize battery replacement and plug-in charging methods to overcome the problems associated with depleting charge levels from a single battery source for power. However, these techniques have not been effectively exploited for use in electric vehicles, due to the size and charge capacity of battery units required by electric vehicles (EVs) for reasonable range or mileage. In addition to these, there are several other charging related issues, including the long charging time currently required for pluggable charging methods. There is a need for a method and system for managing, optimizing and charging battery units in electric vehicles in an efficient, practical and economical manner, so that electric vehicles are powered over long distances without incurring consumption. total power, and to charge the batteries, thus reducing the cost losses incurred. The new technology combines the advantages of serial and parallel training. The technology selects a predetermined number of battery units (initial set) to discharge from the plurality of battery units. Once one or more battery units from the initial set fall below a certain percentage of charge, the technology facilitates a seamless transfer of the power source from the initial set to a new initial set based on predetermined criteria. The transfer is carried out in such a way as to maintain the flow of energy to be charged continuously. A regenerative braking system selects the battery units to charge based on certain criteria. Several smaller and lighter battery units can be used in electric cars (and other electric vehicles) while providing the user with customizable range (not available in electric cars and not practical with parallel training), options flexible charging (swap, plug-in or charge from a standard charger at home) and significantly increased battery life per charge. Using multiple smaller batteries also significantly reduces the capital cost, which is the bulk of the cost of an electric vehicle. This technology can also be used in smart grid systems. The world is facing unprecedented environmental degradation and climate change due to the continued use of fossil fuels, greenhouse gas emissions and carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Mr. Devansh Jalan’s patent makes the use of electric vehicles simpler and more sustainable with improved efficiency and financial implications. Commenting on his accomplishment, Mr. Devansh Manoj Jalan observed, “During the last leg of my five-year journey and taking stock of the time spent here, I am grateful that at JGU, the education I have received not only gave me a solid foundation for my future, but also taught me to think. Coming here from a school system that was more of a rote learning process, having to struggle and think beyond the limits of one’s horizon was an empowering change at JGU. Although my invention is based on technology, it was legal education, and more so the tutelage and worldliness at JGU, that taught me to challenge the intellect and seek solutions. It would be appropriate to mention here that even my nascent legal knowledge was of great help in the patenting process. I am grateful to our Vice Chancellor, all of my teachers over the years and all of JGU members for providing an invigorating and educational journey here that I will cherish all my life. Prof. Dabiru Sridhar Patnaik, Registrar of OP Jindal Global University said: “It is a source of great pride and joy for us at JGU. Mr. Devansh Manoj Jalan’s innovation has been recognized in the United States of America and India. We encourage our students to work in multiple disciplines and develop critical thinking. Devansh’s project is an exceptional paradigm of our approach to new learning. During his internship at the office of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra in 2018, Devansh worked on an electric vehicle promotion and integration project in Mumbai and Maharashtra. He applied his observations and experiences to electric vehicles and researched the technology in Germany, Israel and the United States to understand how electric vehicles work and their limitations.
