Technical Symposium and Workshop For EًُُُُEE Department

Wind Energy Workshop in Tamilnadu India

Two day workshop on Recent Developments of Wind Energy in India 
October 30 - 31, 2015  
Organised by School of Electrical Engineering, VIT University, Vellore , Tamilnadu, India


VIT University is a progressive educational institution that is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence. Students are encouraged on this journey by our committed faculty, world class facilities and student friendly educational systems. 
VIT University was founded in 1984 by Dr. G. Viswanathan, a former parliamentarian and Minister in the Tamil Nadu Government, as a self-financing institution called ‘Vellore Engineering College’. Since then, the institution has grown from strength to strength. Conferred as a ‘Deemed University’ in 2001 by the MHRD, VIT University currently offers 62 degree programs to over 29,000 students in its 2 campuses in Vellore and Chennai.Technical Symposium and Workshop For EًُُُُEE Department

About the Wind Energy Workshop:  

Wind power is the world’s fastest growing energy source. Its fuel free and zero emission aspects make it a popular source of electricity generation. Once built, wind turbines can operate at an almost zero cost. But because of specific character of wind, being a variable and relatively unpredictable energy source, the integration of wind power into a system brings additional challenges for the operation and development of the system. The typical problems are – power fluctuations due to uncertainty of wind, variations of magnitude and directions of wind velocities and structural instability due to heavy gusts and cyclonic storms. 

During the past 20 years outstanding progress has been made in the technology used to convert wind energy to electrical energy. Among various renewable energy sources, wind power has emerged as a major contributor to India’s renewable energy capacity. India being a country surrounded by seas and ocean on three sides is accustomed with the monsoon winds. India is estimated to have wind power potential of 48.5 GW, although the present installed capacity is 21.6 GW only. Although the “WORLD WATCH INSTITUTE, WASHINGTON” recognize India as “wind superpower” yet it has not achieved much in this area. Technical Symposium and Workshop For EًُُُُEE Department

The aim of the workshop is to cover the recent developments and trends introduced and/or adopted in Wind Energy Field. This also aims to address the gaps in the research and development in India with respect to rest of the world. It suggests the options to integrate wind farms with power grid, power smoothing techniques with various energy storage, offshore and onshore technology comparison, pilot projects in offshore wind farm, mitigating power quality and related issues during grid integration and possibilities of adopting smart grid technologies.
