Day 1: 1st May 2017
The workshop was inaugurated in Kalidas Auditorium, Vikramshila Complex IIT Kharagpur by Padma Shri Dr. D. B. Phathak, IIT Bombay. Following distinguish guest were present during the inauguration:
- Prof. Simran Bhattacharyya, Deputy, Director, IIT Kharagpur
- Prof. Adrijit Goswami, Dean, Continuing Education, IIT Kharagpur
- Prof. Raja Datta, Principal, Investigator â€˜T10KTâ€™, NMEICT, IIT Kharagpur
- Prof. Shreevardhan A Soman , Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Bombay
- Prof. Gautam Bandyopadhyay, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIEST Kolkata
- Prof. N. K. Kishore, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Kharagpur.
After the inauguration Prof. N. K. Kishore highlighted the analytical approach of Understanding Power System. He explained the significance of this subject not only in Electrical Context but also with respect to various other streams of science. He then introduced other eminent Faculty members associated with the course.
During the post lunch session there was a lecture on Component of Power System by Prof. Gautam Bandyopadyay. He discussed the major components of the Electrical Power, Transmission Types, Synchronous Generator Model, Load Modeling and Power Flow through a short, medium and long transmission line.
After Tea break the session was conducted by Prof. N. K. Kishore in which he briefed about the Renewable Energy Sources, need for the alternate energy sources and its advantage and disadvantages.
Day 2: 2nd May 2017
The Morning session started at 9:30 A.M with the lecture on Basic Tools of Analysis by Prof. Gautam Bandyopadyay. He discussed the significance of Coordinate System, Overflow Diagram and Load Flow Analysis. He ended the session with economic operation of the plant.
Thereafter the session was dedicated for the discussion of Stability of Power System and the use of the software PSCAD to find the stability. Prof. Banoyopadhyay continued with a lecture on Faults in the Transmission Lines. Participants were introduced to Scilab, which is simulation alternative to MATLAB software.
After the end of the teaching session on second day all the participants visited â€œScience Museumâ€ where Basic Laws of Science were depicted with simple experiments.
Day 3: 3rd May 2017
The First session of the day began with a discussion on the Governance by Prof. Soman. He said that these are used to maintain the frequency of generation and transmission sides. Prof. Soman discussed the collapse of North Grid in detail and the reasons for the blackout due to Transient Instability of system, corridors not being strong enough and lack of Reactive Power Measurement. Synchrony Phases, PMU and other technics for phase measurements were also discussed.
During the Post Lunch session participants had a detailed discussion with Mr. Narayanan from TCS on Information and Communication Techniques in Power system. He discussed the Automation of Substation and Distribution System. He elaborated the building blocks of Smart Grid. He also discussed the Importance of ISO model in smart grid.
Day 4: 4th May 2017
The morning session started with the discussion of Protection of Transmission Lines by Prof. Gautam Bandyopadyay. He discussed different types of relays and recent developments in relays. He conducted a session on Smart Grid and also introduced the concept of Virtual Power Plants and concluded the session with the discussion of processed tools for smartening the grid.
Post Lunch Mr. Narayanan discussed the change in the asset management for the smart grid. He proposed the need of processing of more real time data, which can be achieved with the help of cloud monitoring. The session ended with the detailed presentation by Prof. Gautam Bandyopadyay on protection using adaptive relays.
Day 5: 5th May 2017
Participants were briefed about the Main Workshop to be held from 10th July to 15th July, 2017. The roles and responsibilities of the Workshop Coordinator were explained in detail.
The evening session was Valedictory Ceremony. Certificates were awarded to all 197 workshop coordinators.
The workshop was very beneficial to all the participants and they gained additional knowledge of this subject and also succeeded in enhancing their quality of teaching skills. The learning will not only help the coordinators in conducting the Main Workshop, but it will also help them in conducting their classes in a more informative way.
