Hybrid Communication System – Design and Quality of Service Assessment for Active Distribution Grids

The power distribution system as we know today is gradually evolving with increasing penetration of distributed energy resources (e.g., roof-top solar) and new load patterns (e.g., electric vehicle charging). The intermittent and variable nature of these terminal entities is driving the distribution management system (DMS) to be more active by enabling the provision of bi-directional and reliable communication between the end users and DMS. Such active distribution grid can be effectively operated by hybridizing off-the-shelf communication technologies and siting additional (if needed) communication sensors or routers in an optimal and economic manner. This presentation will highlight the simulation -based research and lab environment demonstration carried out in designing the power distribution grid’s hybrid communication system, its quality-of-service assessment for different hybridization, and strategy of optimally siting the communication devices.

Wireless Communications and Applications

Wireless Communication is the most prevalent technology that has entered our lives in many ways and has rendered itself as an indispensable item in almost all aspects. In technical areas, all exciting applications are centered on communication link between devices; these include IoT based systems, Smart meters and grid, Automation, Smart homes and cities, Vehicular communication to name a few. This seminar will give the students a flavour of the role of communication in all major technologies and stimulate their interest to learn and be a part of this exciting field. This will be an interactive session where queries from the students will be addressed, and they will be advised in terms of undergraduate courses and future career path in both academia and industry that is relevant to the seminar topic. Students are highly encouraged to attend this seminar and learn about the new frontiers of Wireless Communication in a lively interactive session.
