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.

       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.

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.
