Seminar by Prof. Niladri Chakraborty

January 6, 2023 @ 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM IST

Title: Emulator-based Microgrid studies vis a vis Some Indian Renewable interconnected Microgrids.

Time: 10 am 6/1/23

Venue: EE MMCR

Abstract: Mini / Micro Grid in Stand Alone or Grid integrated forms are coming up very fast in the conventional power system. Many a time, these are renewable sources integrated. Design considerations, Plant automation, Remote monitoring and O & M strategies play important roles in their operational exploitation. However, for economics and systematic, technically sound energy businesses, it is prudent to have emulator-based studies done before these systems are commercially realized. Attempts will be made to showcase an emulator-based microgrid available in the Department of Power Engineering, Jadavpur University, Kolkata. At the same time, generalized Design considerations, Plant automation, Remote monitoring, O & M strategies and System studies will be briefly highlighted.  Introduction of different types of renewable integrated Mini / Microgrids encountered during consultancy services or for technical studies available elsewhere in the pan-Indian domain will be made perceptible to the audience.

 Bio: Prof Niladri Chakraborty was born in Kolkata on 27/08/1964. He received his Bachelor’s (1986) and Masters’s Degree (1989) in Electrical Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India. He was the recipient of the prestigious Commonwealth Scholarship in the United Kingdom and obtained the Diploma of Imperial College and Doctor of Philosophy from the University of London in 1999. He was elected as the youngest Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology at Jadavpur University in 2010. He has served twice as Head of the Department of Power Engineering and as Joint Director of the School of Energy Studies at Jadavpur University. He was often elected to the Executive Council and The Court, the highest policy-making academic body of Jadavpur University. He has also received Scholarships from the Royal Society (UK)-DST and Abdul Kalam Award, besides many other awards from numerous academic activities. Dr Chakraborty has served as one of the Lead Scientists in India’s National Communication to United Nations on Climate Change (NATCOM, India, UNFCCC) and a Specialized Energy Expert in formulating the Futuristic Energy Action Plan for the Government of West Bengal, India. He has also completed many research projects obtained from different funding agencies and earned revenue for Jadavpur University as a consultant.

 Prof. Chakraborty’s recent research interests include Energy Economics, Renewable integrated Microgrid, Environmental Measurement and Material Modelling. Dr Chakraborty has in his credit to be the author of about 75 referred journal publications and nearly 130 International Conference Publications. Prof. Chakraborty has guided 13 PhDs (4 more are in writing-up status) and 41 Masters of Engineering Thesis.
