Introduction

Grid integration is one of the major concerns in the recent years as the penetration level of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) is increasing and also expected to increase in future. Due to the increased interconnections and loading of the network with liberalization and environmental pressure, the power systems have already become complex and facing many challenges in their optimal, secure and efficient operation.


India has already taken the first step in the direction of RES by unbundling the power system to bring competition with the introduction of renewable energy sources. Future power system structure, operation, control and management will be quite different from the existing one as it will foresee large market players, more renewable energy sources and demand response programs.


The main objective of the course is to enhance the knowledge of the participants in the area of the grid integration of RES. This is a unique, national level opportunity which delves into the high-level, strategic issues relating to the integration of renewable energy and examines practical strategies that energy generators, project developers and grid operators can implement to overcome obstacles posed by local planning schemes and regulations, and, importantly, how this can be done in a cost-efficient and timely way. The course will provide a platform to an indepth discussion on the various challenges and their possible remedies in RES initiatives which will benefit participants from academic and R&D institutions, engineers of utilities and policy makers.
