The IEEE Student Branch, National Institute of Technology (NIT), Tiruchirappalli is organizing an Online Faculty Development Program (FDP) on Smart Grid Features & Blockchain Technology for Smart Grid from November 16 to 20, 2020.
The National Institute of Technology Tiruchirappalli, situated in the heart of Tamil Nadu was started as a joint and cooperative venture of the Government of India and the Government of Tamil Nadu in 1964 with a view for catering to the needs of man-power in technology for the Country.
NIT Tiruchirappalli is one of the 31 NITs established by the Government of India. The Institute retained its No.1 position among all NITs and ranked 9th in Engineering in the “India Rankings 2020” released by NIRF, MHRD Government of India.
The objective of this FDP is to equip the participants with technical knowhow on the various technologies pertaining to the revival of the conventional power grid into the smart power grid and with the insight of blockchain technology and its applications to the smart grid.
In this course, participants learn about the requirement for a smart grid in the future. Further, they will be exposed to several modern and evolving technologies that can be applied in transforming the present electrical power grid into the smart electric power grid.
The smart grid transforms the operation of the gird into decentralized architecture from its centralized form. In this scenario, blockchain technology, with its excellent features, makes it a promising application for the smart grid paradigm. Smart contracts are gaining interest nowadays amongst researchers. Hence, it is proposed to enrich the participants with the fundamentals of blockchain technology and its various use cases in smart grid operation.
As a whole, the workshop is planned to cover the following sub-themes:
- Introduction to Smart Grid
- Embedded Systems for Smart Grid
- Microgrid Implementation and Control
- Demand Side Management
- Electrical Vehicles in Smart Grids
- Communication Protocols for Smart Grid
- Introduction to Blockchain Technology
- Concepts of Blockchain Technology
- Blockchain Technology for Smart Grid
- Smart Contract Implementation
Resource persons from the National Institute of Technologies reputed academic institutions, industries, and public sector organizations will be handling the technical sessions.
- IEEE Members: Rs. 750/-
- Non-IEEE Members: Rs. 1000/-
