Topic of Research Seminar: Smart Grid: A New Research Paradigm from the Perspective of Evolution and Modernization

Abstract: What is needed today is to have a “more efficient or advanced grid” in terms of the usage of advanced communication technology, information technology (IT) other advanced technologies with improved efficiencies. Because of all these attributes, the smart grids can be termed as “intelligent grid” or the grid with the brain. Smart grids enable bidirectional flows of energy and uses two-way communication and control capabilities that will lead to an array of new functionalities and applications. The smart grid will permit the two-way flow of both electricity and information. The move towards the smart grid is fueled by a number of needs. For example, there is the need for improved grid reliability while dealing with an aging infrastructure, and there is the need for environmental compliance and energy conservation. Also, there is the need for improved operational efficiencies and customer service. The seminar will provide students’ knowledge about the architectural design of smart grids. Measurement and communication technologies for smart grids would be discussed in detail. Performance and stability analysis of smart grids and computational tools required for smart grid design would be the core content of this presentation.
