The term “Smart Grid” defines a self – healing network equipped with dynamic optimization techniques that use real-time measurements to minimize network losses, maintain voltage levels, increase reliability, and improve asset management. The operational data collected by the Smart Grid and its sub – systems will allow system operators to rapidly identify the best strategy to secure against attacks, vulnerability, and so on, caused by various contingencies.
KIIT School of Electrical Engineering organizes a two days International Workshop on Smart Grid in collaboration of IEEE PES Chapter, Bhubaneswar on 26th and 27th December, 2018.
During the Inaugural Session, Welcome Address was given by Dr. S. C. Swain, Associate Dean, SoEE. The aim and objectives of workshop was sensitized by Dr. Kundan Kumar, Faculty Coordinator, IWSG 2018.
