National Conference on Power Electronics in Sustainable Energy Development
A national conference on Power Electronics in Sustainable Energy Development was organized by the Amrita School of Engineering at Coimbatore during December 19-20, 2011.
The global electrical energy consumption is steadily rising and consequently there is a necessity to increase the power generation capacity. A significant percentage of the required capacity addition has to be from renewable energy sources for sustainability. Renewable energy systems are presently undergoing rapid changes in technology. Renewable energy sources will be hooked into electrical energy networks using power electronics, and power transmission and distribution will become more reliant on power electronics to efficiently control and regulate electrical energy flow in an already congested electrical network. Large scale integration of renewable generation sources into the electric power grid raises critical issues on both sides. Power electronics offers critical functionalities affecting voltage and frequency compatibility, renewable sources for maximized energy yield, and power support to the grid. All forms of transport also are becoming dependant on power electronics to provide more sustainable vehicles.
The conference covers topics such as,
- Renewable Energy Systems
- Power Quality
- Power Electronics and Drives
- Electrical Machines
- Embedded System Applications in Machines and Drives
- FACTS Devices modeling and application
- Smart Metering
- Energy Storage Systems
- Digital Control and processing
- Intelligent systems and control
- Electric and Hybrid vehicles
- Electromagnetic interference
The invited speakers include Prof. Sujay Basu, Jadavpur University, West Bengal and Mrs. K. A. Fathima, C-DAC, Trivandrum, Kerala
