International Conference on Renewable Technologies in Engineering (ICRTE 2021) inaugurated at Manav Rachna
Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, and Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, FET, MRIIRS have organized the prestigious International Conference on ‘Renewable Technologies in Engineering (ICRTE 2021)’ in association with Springer on 15 – 16 April 2021. This is the first International Conference organized in collaboration with Springer.
The inaugural session witnessed the gracious presence of Chief Guest, Chair Professor CEA, IIT Delhi, Dr. Bhim Singh; Guest of Honour Director, NPTI, Dr. Manju Mam; Honourable Vice Chancellor, MRIIRS Dr. Sanjay Srivastava; Pro Vice-Chancellor & Dean, FET Dr. Pradeep Kumar; Dr. Dipankar Deb Professor, IITRAM and Dr. Mohan Kohle from the University of Norway.
The International conference began with a heart-warming welcome note delivered by the Convener of Conference Professor Anita Khosla. She addressed the audience about the theme of the Conference and also shared the two-days plan of the technical program.
Thereafter, Dr. Pardeep Kumar discussed the numbers of the papers received and the review process for shortlisting the papers in the different tracks for the conference. He invited all the participants to share their innovative ideas and research in the field of renewable energy.
Dr. Sanjay Srivastava enlightened the participants about developing R&D culture in educational institutes and conveyed his best wishes for the conduction of program and hoped that participants will surely be benefitted from this conference.
The Chief guest of the Day, Chair Professor CEA, IIT Delhi, Dr. Bhim Singh, apprised the audience about the diversified domains of the renewable energy such as electrical vehicles, Power converters & efficient utilization of electrical energy. He expressed his delight at the fact that some technologies in the wind industry are very effective in generating 50-60% more energy from the same wind potential that was 20-30 years back.
Guest of Honour, Director, NPTI, Dr. Manju Mam emphasized the energy technologies- Gas liquefaction, Energy distribution, Energy security as well as energy storage and renewables such as solar photovoltaic, wind turbines etc.
This was followed by the keynote sessions by Dr. Dipankar Deb, Professor from IITRAM, Ahmedabad, and Dr. Mohan Kohle from the University of Norway.
Dr. Dipankar Deb discussed the use of Machine Intelligent Forecasting for Hybrid Wind Farms. The various experiments conducted in the domain of AI & ML were also an integral part of the session to support the facts in the area.
Dr. Mohan Kohle from the University of Norway, second keynote speaker of the day spoke about the Smart grids and number of challenges, including ageing infrastructure, continued growth in demand, new load types, integration of increasing share of variable renewable energy sources, and the need to improve the security of supply.
