About the Course
There is an ever increasing demand for electrical energy in our country due to the growth in industrialization and urbanization. In this context, creating an eco-friendly environment is a prime concern, whereby getting rid of the air pollution, emphasizes the need for power from renewable energy sources.
Owing to technological improvements and significant cost reductions, power generation from wind energy is nearly competitive with conventional sources. Wind energy electric conversion systems have been found to be viable in contributing significant amount of electric power, when installed in locations where adequate potential is available over most part of the year.
By attending this FDP, participants will gain indepth knowledge in fundamentals of various configurations of wind energy electric conversion systems, its operation and control.
The following topics will be covered in different sessions:
- Wind Energy Projects in India.
- Analysis and operation of GCIG, SEIG and DFIG.
- Operation and control of induction generator power converter system feeding (i) AC and DC grid and (ii) Isolated loads.
- Operation and control of permanent magnet alternator power converter system
- DFIG for (i) stand-alone power supplies and (ii) grid-connected operation.
- Case studies on the Hybrid operation of wind-solarstorage system.
- IoT application in renewable energy system
The faculty members of the AICTE approved institutions, research scholars, PG Scholars, participants from Government, Government (Aided), Industry and staff of host institutions can attend the FDP. There is no Registration fee to attend this FDP.
Participants should be from the Electrical and Electronics Engineering discipline. Selection will be based on first-come, first-serve basis. Preference will be given to new participants i.e., those who have not attended ATAL FDP earlier. Maximum 200 participants may be allowed to attend the online FDP. The selected candidates will be notified on or before 15th December 2020.
On completion of the programme, participants will be awarded an E-Certificate of participation by respective ATAL Academy. Minimum 80% attendance and 60% marks in the test are compulsory for certification.
