The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, FET, organized a webinar on ‘Microgrid and its Opportunities’ recently as part of the International Event conducted by the Department to commemorate the Silver Jubilee Year of the University. The guest speaker of the day was Dr. Ramesh C Bansal, Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Sharjah, UAE. Prof. (Dr) Leena G., Head, Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department delivered the welcome address emphasizing the importance of Microgrids in the present scenario.
The speaker Dr. Ramesh C Bansal has more than 25 years of diversified experience in teaching, research, accreditation, industry, and academic leadership in several foreign Universities like the University of Queensland, Australia, University of Pretoria, South Africa, and University of the South Pacific, Fiji.
Prof Bansal gave an overview of the microgrid and its opportunities for grid-connected, off-grid, and island mode systems. He also provided insights about the role that microgrids play and the services they can provide, and discussed case studies that demonstrate real examples in the field.
The lecture proved to be beneficial for the participants specifically for the students/academicians/research scholars working in the area of renewable energy systems. He encouraged the participants to explore new ideas and come up with the latest research proposals in the area related to Smart Grids and their control.
The session was coordinated by Dr. Ashish Grover, faculty from the EEE department. Around 78 participants joined the Webinar and the event concluded with a question-answer session. The e-Certificates were also provided to the participants.
