Development of a smart grid for the proposed 33 KV ring main Distribution System in NIT Rourkela

Pal, Aurabind and Ratha, Anubhav and Mishra, Vaibhav and Garg, Anshul (2011) Development of a smart grid for the proposed 33 KV ring main Distribution System in NIT Rourkela. BTech thesis.



The non-reliability of fossil fuels has forced the world to use energy efficiently. These days, it is being stressed to use the electrical power smartly so that energy does not go waste. And hence comes the concept of a Smart Grid. So it becomes necessary for reputed places of academics to develop the prototype of the same in their campus.

National Institute of Technology (NIT) Rourkela intends to set up a 33KV Ring Main Distribution System including 33/0.433 KV substations in its campus. The present 11KV line will be discarded and replaced by the 33KV system. The main driving force behind this step by the management is to accommodate the stupendously increased power requirement of the institute. The above mentioned plan also includes, set up of Data Acquisition System (DAS) that intends to monitor the electrical equipment in the substations. This is being done not only to increase the accountability and reliability of the distribution system but also to encourage academic research in the distribution automation domain. All in all, an excellent step towards make the Grid, Smart.

In this project work the focus is laid on getting load flow solution of the 33KV ring main system. Here the authors use a specialized algorithm for distribution network with high R/X value to obtain the load flow solution. Then using artificial neural networks computation, algorithms are implemented to do the load forecasting and dynamic tariff setting. At the end a Web Portal, the NITR e-Power Monitoring System is developed that will be an excellent interface to the public in general and will help the students of the institute to know their grid well. In short a conscious effort is put to make the grid more interactive.
