The Cryogenic Engineering Centre, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur is organizing an AICTE-QIP Short Term Course on Superconductor based Power Applications from October 1 to 7, 2020.
Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur was established by the government of India in 1951. Being first of its kind, it is recognized as an Institute of National Importance by the government of India. The institute was established to train scientists and engineers after independence. It shares its organizational structure and undergraduate admission process with other IITs. IIT Kharagpur has the largest campus (2,100 acres), several departments, centers & schools, and the highest student enrollment. Recently IIT, Kharagpur has been recognized as an Institute of Eminence.
Superconductor based technology for power application is a cutting edge technology, which will have a great impact on the techno-commercial aspects in electrical power generation, energy storage, bulk power transmission with minimal losses, high torque compact motors, and protection of power system against faults. The stated technology has wide application in the field of electrical power sector (both on-shore and off-shore), energy storage systems, defense sector for ship propulsion, degaussing, rail-gun, electrolysis industries, nuclear and particle accelerators.
