Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications (AmritaWNA), Amritapuri will organize a workshop on ICT Enabled Distribution Grid- Stabiliz Energy on March 22, 2018.

About Stabiliz-Energy

Stabiliz-Energy is an Indo-European Research and Innovation Initiative under the New INDIGO Partnership Program. The project aims to provide local regions and populations a cost-effective infrastructure and functional solution to combine local renewable energy sources with a high level of energy availability and sufficient quality of service for everyday use. It targets micro and small smart networks, which facilitate integration of these energy sources locally and regionally. The project has a complementary consortium consisting of experts from different domains. The problem of power outage or disruption is handled using solutions from ICT, power engineering and the low-cost hardware technologies available in market.

About the Workshop

The workshop attempts to demonstrate and explore possible solutions towards achieving automation for a radial distribution grid.

The distribution and sub-distribution system offer the electricity board very minimal visibility, control or resilience to systemic inconsistencies or glitches.

In our endeavor, we have mimicked a radial distribution grid by creating a test-bed consisting of real loads in our campus.

The test-bed is reconfigurable in the event of fault and augmented by an ICT enabled metering and communication infrastructure.


Amrita Wireless Smart Grid

AmritaWNA has initiated the Amrita Wireless Smart Grid project envisioning a country with reliable and efficient energy system with electricity access for everyone. Smart grid consists of electrical providers, systems of power delivery and smart buildings (customers). To solve the present power crisis, using renewable energies such as solar, and biogas each building is integrated with main grid and the renewable energy generator. If the output power of the hybrid system is more, we can inject this power into the main grid. Thus the Demand Response maintained.
