    Power System Studies

    Power System studies aim at the analysis of power system problem at planning, design and operation stages. Studies include selection of suitable ratings for power equipment, adoptability of new technology for equipment and controls, design of new controls and operational sequence, etc. Power system stability and reliability studies, Static and dynamic reactive compensation requirement and their optimization, analysis of faulted power system and the protection relay coordination, system islanding, etc. are carried out through computer simulation where in continuous refinement in computational efficiency and hardware requirements optimization becomes essential. Power system control and protection by wide area measurements is an important and upcoming area of research under power system studies. Smart transmission systems and improving the system technical as well as commercial performance for better environmental compatibility and financial viability are additional objectives of power system studies. Studies like load flow calculations, optimal load flow analysis, short circuit studies, transient stability studies, power flow control using FACTS, harmonics and measures to mitigate them form some of the important power system studies. Adoption of Soft Computing techniques for power system control and its influence on the power system operation is being increasingly studied both by academia and the industry. Studies on integration of large scale renewable energy with the power supply grid is essential and challenging.

    Power System Equipment

    The cost and reliability of electric power supplied to the consumer depends on the quality of equipment that goes into the making of the power system. There is always requirement to improve the quality, longevity and efficiency of these equipment. Reduction of size is another important requirement. The equipment may be primary ones like generator, transformer, circuit breakers, isolators, lightning arresters, wave traps, etc. They may also be the ones used for the improvement of power system voltage control and loss minimization like capacitors and inductors. Studies on power equipment include use of better insulating material for improving both insulation and thermal performance and better core material for transformers and inductors to improve the efficiency and when required to customise the operational characteristics to suit the power system operational requirement. Studies on understanding / improving diagnostic test methods and life estimation studies to facilitate the increased life for power system equipment is the need of the hour as Indian power system comprises of appreciable percentage of aged generation, transmission, distribution and end-use infrastructure.

    Sensors

    Sensors for measurement of basic parameters like voltage, current, temperature, pressure, etc. are the backbone for the healthy and safe operation of power system. In addition, many diagnostic tools are being increasingly adopted in power system for monitoring purpose. The sensors will sense disturbances / signals generated by undesirable activity like partial discharge, gas and moisture in liquid dielectrics, etc. Detection of contaminants in liquids and gases is not only important for electrical equipment but also for general purpose applications where in outmost safety is to be assured. Recent technology in the design and realization of sensors is MEMS. Research avenues in this area is abundant towards design and characterization of MEMS, improving their accuracy and immunity to external disturbances, design and fabrication of measuring systems based on MEMS.

    High Voltage Engineering

    High voltage engineering deals with the internal insulation of all types of electrical equipment and devices of all sizes and ratings as well as outdoor insulation associated with transmission & distribution lines and bushings of equipment. Study of characterization of dielectric property under standard and non-standard wave shapes and adoptability of gaseous (including gas mixtures), liquid and solid dielectric in electric equipment is core area of studies in high voltage engineering. Study on ageing properties for diagnostic testing purpose and synthesis of custom insulating material with required property using nanomaterials is a cutting edge research world over. Study of outdoor insulation under polluted conditions and long- term behaviour of the new polymeric material based insulators under polluted condition is a contemporary research in renowned high voltage laboratories. Formulation of new diagnostic test methods and their validation before commercialization is an important activity.

    Power Electronics

    In recent times, Power Electronics has found its way into all forms of Electrical engineering. In particular, its application in motor drives and in bulk power transmission as FACTs controllers in ac transmission systems as well as dc transmission lines are well known. Studies on newer configurations for converters, both Line Commutated and Voltage Source configurations for improving the control efficiency and loss minimization as well as reduction of filtering requirement are being undertake in laboratories of repute. With the unprecedented growth in generation and utilization of electrical energy, the role of power electronics in conventional and renewable energy sectors will be unparalleled and the research and development activities will increase by many fold.

    Distributed Generation & Renewable Energy

    Distributed Generation refers to power generation at the point of consumption. It eliminates the complexity associated with transmission and distribution. It generally consists of Diesel generator, solar, wind, fuel cells. The research studies include optimal sizing and location of the energy sources form techno economic considerations. General concepts of distributed generation and renewable energy integration into power supply grid are now a days is redefined in terms of micro grid and smart grid where in adoption of Information technology for betterment of the power system, in particular distribution system performance is done. Application of Artificial Intelligence techniques is the well-known trend in the research activities in this area.
