The European Smart Grids ETP defines the smart grids as “electricity networks that can intelligently integrate the behavior and actions of all users connected to it - generators, consumers and those that do both – in order to efficiently deliver sustainable, economic and secure electricity supplies”. In developed as well as developing nations smart grid technologies are being implemented in order to improve the grid's efficiency and to integrate renewable energy resources into the grid.

Looking beyond 2030, the challenges of efficient distribution and management for electricity networks are likely to get tougher. There exists a general consensus that the challenges of climate change, system security, and a need to accommodate significant volumes of decentralized and renewable generation, require that the network infrastructure must be upgraded to enable smarter operation. The major changes to the way we supply energy and monitor its consumption by building a smarter grid lies at the heart of these changes. Large increase in electricity contributed by intermittent/highly variable renewable resources, the increase of stressing/narrowly conditions on transmission system, a massive decoupling between generation/load caused by dc system and several other features expected into the future electricity networks will negatively affect the system stability.

The reliable and sophisticated solutions to the unforeseen issues of the future networks are creating dynamically intelligent applications/solutions to be deployed during the incremental process of building a smarter grid.

Smart grid technology is a challenge for India, where a huge gap between demand and supply of electricity exists. The challenges for smart grid needs a focused discussion.

The future electricity networks and its potential issues require looking beyond the existing research frontiers irrespective of the disciplinary boundaries. For this reason, the discussion of the future development on smarter architecture and its intelligent applications/solutions is the key research point to provide the critical importance to economic and social welfare into future smarter grids networks. The solutions using the advanced technologies / methodologies will be discussed. Several technical studies based on the recent research work will also be presented.

The 3 day workshop will be full of hands on experiments/training on Smart Energy Grid cases and research solutions for future electricity networks and their potential issues require looking beyond the existing research frontiers, independent of disciplinary boundaries.
Hands on Experiments/Training:
1. Introduction and hands on experiments on Smart Grid Test Bed developed at IIT Mandi.
2. Introduction and hands on training on Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) facility available at IIT Mandi.
