Software (Matlab) 59,339 Total 88,504 9. Methodology used: The basic infrastructure facility has been created. Potential creators of power quality problem are identified and contacted. Field testing have been done in Delhi, Noida, Sahibabad. Students have been appropriately involved and trained. 11. New observations/ achievements There is awareness amongst consumers towards power quality problem. They are interested in reducing the grid pollution. Energy audit interests the industries, but the initial investment in replacing old electrical and mechanical equipment prohibits their inclination towards energy audit. 12. Innovations: Software has been developed to analyse the power quality of existing utility. Work on the development of software for energy audit is under progress. 13 Application potential 1) Long term 2) Immediate 3) Any other This project is an ongoing work. New consumers are identified and trained for energy conservation, energy audit and power quality studies. Manpower trained in the project i) Research Scientists or Research Associates Nil ii) No of Ph D One (under progress) iii) Other technical personnel trained: Two The students of B.Tech. final year have been involved as part of their project work. Five B.Tech..B.E. projects have been completed with the facilities created. The lab staff has also been trained to handle sophisticated equipment. PROJECT COMPLETION REPORT 1. Date of commencement of the Project 14-5-1999 2. Duration of the project Two Years 3. Date of Completion 13-5-2001 7. OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT To conduct power quality and energy audit studies in industrial premises in New Delhi, Noida and Faridabad. In order to solve the power quality problem, it is necessary to identify the same by conducting the fields tests and load surveys. For identifying this problem, it is necessary to create and establish elaborate instrumentation, computing and other support facilities. Hence, one of the main objectives of this project is to create a test / measurement / instrumentation / computation facility for study of power quality problems and Energy Audit of Indian Industries located in and around Delhi. 8. SALIENT RESEARCH ACHIEVEMENTS 8.1 New Findings/ Achievements Number of Undergraduate Projects undertaken 5 Number of Research Papers in Indian Journals 1 Number of Research Papers in International Conferences 2 Number of Research Papers National Conferences 2 Number of Energy Audits Conducted 3 Number of Power Quality Studies Conducted 3 Product/ Process Developed (a) Modeling and Simulation algorithm to conduct power quality studies have been developed. (b) Progress has been made towards computer aided energy auditing scheme. The work is under progress and it is likely that a user friendly software will be developed to organise energy audit activity. 9. CONCLUSION SUMMARISING THE ACHIEVEMENT Details of Energy Audits Undertaken Company Audit (Preliminary / Year of Audit Charges Duration of Major Detailed) Audit Audit Energy Area covered in the audit Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, Detailed 2000 Nil (part of One Year Electrical Airport Authority of AICTE sponsored India Project work) Faculty of Detailed 2000 Nil (part of One Year Electrical Engineering, Jamia AICTE sponsored Millia Islamia Project work) Real-Time Systems, Preliminary 2001 Nil(part of AICTE Three Electrical Okhla Industrial Estate sponsored Project Months work) SCOPE FOR FUTURE WORK Energy audit is a continuing process. There are many more industries - small and medium scale - which are interested in undertaking the audit work. However, due to limitations on our side by way of trained manpower, we are unable to gear up fully for the job. The students who are asked to undertake energy audit project find it a tough task working in the field taking measurements and conducting surveys. Students prefer to work on PC and develop software. They are less interested in hardware work. Regular members of staff also take this work as a burden. Hence, there is a necessity to engage permanent trained technical manpower to work only for energy audit work. Students do excellent work in developing software but fail to sustain work on long term measurements and power/energy surveys. 10.
