Invited talk on SolarPV Hybrid Distributed PowerGen System
November 18, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The Power and Control Society, on behalf of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, is conducting an invited talk on SolarPV Hybrid Distributed PowerGen System for Rural & Urban Microgrid Applications.Dr Jayesh Barve, Principal Engineer (Controls & Optimisation), GE Global Research, Bangalore, and President, Automatic Control and Dynamic Optimisation Society, will be handling the session, covering motivation, technical background, and some perspectives based on his industrial R&D and pilot-plant experiences related to HDP microgrids.
About the talk
An emerging trend in power systems technologies is the shift in the share of power generation from traditional large, centralised fossil-fuel-based thermal power-generation systems (coupled to large transmission-distribution grids) to new Renewable and/or Hybrid Distributed Power generation (HDP) systems (EITHER off-grid OR grid-tied) forming a small, local power generation- distribution systems called as nano/micro/mini-grids. Such HDP systems and micro-grids can help solve the universal energy access problem by providing electricity in remote, rural areas at lower carbon footprints. Whereas, in urban areas, similar scaled-up, grid-tied HDP microgrids can help reduce energy costs and carbon footprints for commercial and industrial facilities, campuses, and buildings.
The talk will highlight Physical and Digital transformation covering some details of a specific HDP solution that combines novel HDP Physical Systems (i.e., SolarPV, Battery, IC Engine, Power-Energy Controls, and Management, etc.) integrated with state-of-art HDP Digital platform (i.e., cyber-secured Edge- CloudApp based advanced IIOT automation platform) developed by speaker & his team at GE Global Research Center, Bangalore and with several plants successfully deployed & operational globally last few years. Finally, a brief overview will be provided describing the expansion of this work to an urban microgrid energy management platform.
