IEEE North Saskatchewan section organized a one hour research talk in university of Saskatchewan on November 14, 2017. The talk was attended by post-graduate students and some post-doctoral fellows. It was focused on the issues of increasing penetration of photovoltaic generation in low voltage networks. It also covered the role of battery energy storage system in mitigating these issues.
Update on the project entitled ‘Sustainable energy systems with photovoltaic generation and energy storage solution for remote communities in India and Canada'.
The exhaustive two-days sessions were delivered at SVNIT, Surat as a part of a short term training program for faculty members and graduate students. Title for day-1 was: Distribution Networks and PVDGs: Modeling and Analysis.
Contents included Detailed phase-domain modeling of distribution networks with distribution transformers voltage regulators and photovoltaic arrays along with a hands-on coding of Forward-Backward sweep power flow algorithm. Day-2 contents included introduction and demonstration of the software - GridLAB-D.
Newton-Bhabha India-UK advanced training school (IUATS) was organized on "Optimal design and control of Smart community: New ideas for off-grid communities" during November 7-17, 2016. It was aimed at providing a unique opportunity to Indian-based and UK-based post-doctoral and early career (holding a PhD) researchers for sharing research expertise and networking with a focus on promoting international collaboration. I delivered a 90 minutes session on November 9, 2016.
The talk was aimed at disseminating knowledge about recent developments in BESS applications to the graduate students of Nirma University.
The overall content was divided in two parts. First part discussed the new applications of grid-connected BESS in micro grids and active distribution networks. Whereas the second part discussed about using GridLAB-D in evaluating the impact of grid-connected BESS. Prezi shown along side is for the second part of this talk.
Silver oak group of institutes organized its first state level three day symposium (Feb 10-12, 2016) named 'Samvaad' for faculty members of engineering institutes and PhD aspirants.
This talk was delivered in two sessions - 90 minutes each - on Feb 11, 2016 with first session introducing the ongoing research on renewables and energy storage systems. Second session was more of a demonstration and overview of implementation with MatLAB and VB code. Visual content of first session is available for reference here.
As a part of TEQIP initiative, expert talks was arranged at L E College, Morbi, Gujarat on June 4-5, 2015. The talk was intended for faculty members across the disciplines and graduate students (pursuing Masters at L E College, Morbi).
The talk was focused more on presenting the breadth of research work in this happening area rather than depth of any particular research on any of the topics. Considering the audience’ interest new exciting developments in renewable energy sources and its integration were also covered. The prezi shown alongside contains overview of the contents delivered.
As a part of TEQUIP initiative at IIT Gandhinagar, a workshop on 'Research Methodology' was arranged for faculty members of engineering institutes from Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madya Pradesh.
A one and half an hour session was conducted for around 30 faculty members. The talk was entitled 'What is Literature Survey'. Details of the 5 day workshop are available here. The talk was focused more on interaction and discussion on problems and issues faced in conducting literature survey by academic researchers. However, a brief visual content is available here to view. It may take a while to load.
As a part of Life Skills Program at IIT Gandhinagar, a workshop on 'Why and How of Reading' was arranged by coordinator Shri C S Sharma. A one hour session was conducted by me in a 90 minutes workshop. Primer to the talk which was circulated in advance among all students with announcement is available here.
The visual content of the session was prepared in Prezi and can be reached from the panel on right or clicking the link below.
Delivered a 2-hour session at a Short Term Training Program (ISTE approved STTP) for the faculty members of engineering institutes. The session was titled as ?Control and Dispatch of Real and Reactive Power in Active Distribution Networks and Microgrids?. Animated contents of this talk can be viewed here. Details of STTP and program schedule are available here. The visual content of the talk was prepared in Prezi and can be seen in the panel on right.
