In Remote Communities of India and Canada @ USask,Canada
Modelled a remote feeder in Saskatchewan with battery storage
Proposed an iterative approach with battery storage to improve PV hosting capacity of the remote feeder
Proposed, planned and executed the research project
The competitive post-doctoral fellowship by the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute is awarded to 8 proposals yearly in India. Only one proposal is selected for energy sector every year. My project proposal entitled ‘Sustainable Energy Systems with Photovoltaic Generation and Energy Storage Solutions in Remote Communities of India and Canada won the fellowship for 23 weeks of research and stay at the University of Saskatchewan, SK, Canada in April 2017. As a sole researcher on the project, I came to Saskatoon on June 16, 2017 and returned to India with a successful project completion on November 24, 2017. I reported the project findings at the India Habitat Center in New Delhi in the last week of November 2017.
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 battery energy storage systems. Several battery energy storage alternatives were studied and compared for their cost and benefits for use with PV generation in remote communities.
Prof. Rama Gokarajupresented 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:
