About the programme

With increasing growth in the field of Electrical drives, drives has made tremendous contribution in every part of life. Instead of going for Conventional Drives, people are using Smart Drives now a days. This workshop has been proposed to offer an opportunity to experts to discuss recent trends in converters for applications in the field of Electric Drives, Smart grids and Micro grid technologies. The smart intelligent drives, will able to collect the data directly from the motor and no additional sensors will be needed anymore. The data obtained from the motor is being used to determine the health of the drive system. Miniature motors has reduced size and weight which enhances the efficiency and reliability of the drives.  The smart grid can be linked through a network operating system, this opens a whole set of new possibilities. The new generation grids are capable of self diagnosing the faults for the power of future. Hands on sessions will be conducted for converter design and modeling.

The main motivation of this workshop is to flourish power electronics applications as a unique platform for cutting edge technology and attract design practitioners from various industries and research institutes across India by demonstrating in house product design, modelling and hardware implementation capabilities.

The course shall comprise three technical sessions spanning over two days as listed below:

Session 1:

  • Concepts of power converter technologies for Electric Drives
  • Improving efficiency of the electrical machines by means of control

Session 2:

  • Converter topologies and control techniques
  • DC-DC converters
  • DC-AC Converters
  • AC-DC Converters
  • Hands on Converter design and modeling

 Session 3:

  • Introduction to Smart Grid technologies
  • Smart Grid – Indian Perspectives
  • Integration of Generation from Renewable Energy Sources with Grid
  • Net Metering and Micro Grid
  • Smart Sensors and Advanced Metering Infrastructure
