Problems facing Indian Power Industry and its Choices

Problems facing Indian Power Industry and its Choices: Problems facing Indian Power Industry and its Choices – The electricity requirements of India have grown tremendously and the demand has been running ahead of supply. Electricity generation and transmission processes in India are very inefficient in comparison with those of some developed countries. As per one […]

Use of Computers and Microprocessors

Use of Computers and Microprocessors: Use of Computers and Microprocessors – The first methos for solving various power system problems were AC and DC network analysers developed in early 1930s. AC analysers were used for load flow and stability studies whereas DC were preferred for short-circuit studies. Analogue computers were developed in 1940s and were […]

Power System Engineers and Power System Studies: Power System Engineers and Power System Studies – The power system engineer of the first decade of the twenty-first century has to face a variety of challenging tasks, which he can meet only by keeping abreast of the recent scientific advances and the latest techniques. On the planning […]

Electromagnetic Radiation

Electromagnetic Radiation from Overhead Lines: Biological effects of electromagnetic radiation from power lines and even cables in close proximity of buildings have recently attracted attention and have also caused some concern. Power frequency (50 or 60 Hz) and even their harmonics are not considered harmful. Investigations carried out in certain advanced countries have so far […]

Electric Energy Generation

Environmental Aspects Of Electric Energy Generation: Electric Energy Generation – Conversion of one form of energy or another to electrical form has unwanted side effects and the pollutants generated in the process have to be disposed off. Pollutants know no geographical boundary, as result the pollution issue has become a nightmarish problem and strong national […]

Distributed Dispersed Generation

Distributed Dispersed Generation: Distributed Dispersed Generation using many small generators of 2-50 MW output, installed at various strategic points throughout the area, so that each provides power to a small number of consumers nearby. These may be solar, mini/micro hydel or wind turbine units, highly efficient gas turbines, small combined cycle plants, since these are […]
