My Contribution

Modelled a remote feeder in Saskatchewan

Proposed an iterative approach to improve PV hosting capacity of t he remote feeder

Proposed, planned and executed the research project

Project - Sustainable Energy Systems in India-Canada

The Context:

The aim of the project, being conducted by researchers from the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan, is to develop expertise in the engineering, geological, geographical, regulatory and economic factors of having a small modular nuclear reactor in a place that has not previously used nuclear power, using Saskatchewan as its case study. Equipping Saskatchewan researchers with the knowledge required to address complex and inter-related technical, regulatory and legal issues is at the heart of a $1.1 million multidisciplinary project funded by the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation.

My Role:

As a sole researcher of this project supervised by Prof. Rama Gokaraju, I had proposed, planned and conducted the research. Modeled an existing remote feeder in the province of Saskatchewan using PSS SINCAL and assessed its potential to host PV generation with hosting capacity analysis (HCA). Proposed an iterative approach to improve PV hosting capacity of this remote feeder with and without battery energy storage systems. The results were presented (and subsequently published in the proceedings) at the IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting (Aug. 2018) in Portland, OR, USA.  

Project Outcome:

Prof. Rama Gokarajupresented the research paper in the IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting (Aug. 2018) in Portland, OR, USA. The following research paper is now available on the IEEE Xplor:
