About Course

An important goal of Smart Grid Technology (SGT) is to leverage modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure to help monitor and control of the power systems more effectively. With the increase in penetration of SGT in power systems, there has been a growing demand of real time visualization, monitoring, and control of the power system. Further, the present day electricity sector is witnessing increased share of renewables, storage, EV charging stations, microgrids, intelligent sensors and controllers, automation, and smart metering at different levels in the network. This leads to transmission & distribution networks requiring cyber-secure Advanced Energy Management System (AEMS) and Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) tools. The large penetration of renewables, being intermittent in nature, will pose system stability and power quality concerns, which will require proper compensation and controls. The main objective of this course is to familiarize the participants from academic institutions, utilities, industries, and R&D organizations about different concepts and developments in the Smart Grid Technology. Experience gained through some of the smart grid pilot projects will also be shared. The topics to be covered in the course include -

  • Introduction to Smart Grid
  • Smart Grid Architecture and Building Blocks
  • Smart Grid Measurements
  • ICT in Smart Grid
  • Smart Grid Protocols
  • Renewable Integration
  • Microgrids (AC & DC)
  • Energy Storage and Demand Response
  • EMS and DMS tools
  • Smart Analytics
  • Peak Load Management and Demand Response
  • Cyber Security in Smart Grid
  • Regulatory Issues in Smart Grid
  • Smart Grid R & D Pilot at IIT Kanpur

  • Participants from Academic Institutions

    Maximum thirty participants teaching in AICTE approved engineering colleges will be selected on all India basis to attend the course at IIT Kanpur. Applicants should be engaged in teaching Electrical/Electronics/Computer Science courses. Selected candidates will be paid AC 3-tier class railway fair by the shortest route and a daily allowances, if any, as per QIP norms. Accommodation will be arranged in the Visitors’ hostel (on sharing basis) or one of the students’ hostels at IIT Kanpur. Application should be made on the registration form (photocopy is also acceptable) along with a caution deposit of Rs. 1000/- in the form of a crossed cheque drawn in favor of “Coordinator, Continuing Education Programme, IIT Kanpur” payable at State Bank of India, IIT Kanpur (1161). This caution deposit will be refunded to all those candidates who are either not selected or to the selected candidates, who finally participate in the course.

    Participation from Inductry and R&D Organisations

    Participants from utilities and other organizations will also be allowed to attend the course. Registration fee per participants is Rs 29,500 (Including GST of 18%). This must be paid in advance through SBI i-Collect on or before April 20, 2019. Boarding and lodging will be provided on twin sharing basis. However, participants will bear the travel expenses.
