Challenge and Opportunity in Indian Power Sector

Electrical power plays vital role in economic development of the country. The adequate supply of electrical energy improves the living standard of human being, increase the productivity in industry and agriculture. The demand of electrical power increased very rapidly from last few decade. To meet the GDP of 8% the demand of electric consumption will increase to 4, 00,000 MW by 2020 and 9, 50.000 MW by 2030.

The installed generation capacity in India is 329.226 GW as on August 31st 2017 which includes 17.7 % of total installed capacity by renewal power plant and 82.3 % capacity by non-renewal power plants. The contribution of non-renewal power plant are: coal (193466.50 MW), gas (25185.38 MW), diesel (837.6 MW), Nuclear (6780.00 MW) and hydro (44653.4 MW). The contribution of renewal power plant are small hydro power plant (4384.55 MW), wind power (32508.17 MW), Biomass-cogeneration (8181.70 MW), waste to power (114.08 MW) and solar power (13114.85 MW).

India is on the threshold of major power revolution. There is a huge power capacity in pipe line and for that effort is being made for enhancing deficit of power to some extent for the last several year. The government has emphasized on the need for major improvement in technology in electrical equipment manufacturing. Since most of the capacities at present and next five year plan will be in super critical plants and ultra-super critical plants, the ability to deliver high technology product and solution will be most crucial for growth to the Indian electrical manufacturers.

Reasons are many like limited amount of fossil fuels; to take steps to reduce carbon footprints; gradually reducing cost of renewable energy generation; nearly zero cost of fuel used in renewable energy plants; comparatively low operating cost of these plants; etc.

Most of the part of India is enriched with solar heat radiations. Also coastal reason of many states and desert reason of some states observes a continuous wind flow which is very suitable for wind energy generation. Apart from the major renewable energy sources (RES) like wind, solar and bagasse other renewable energy sources such as geothermal, tidal, biomass, generation from waste etc. has already been explored although amount of energy production by them is considerably less in comparison to major renewable energy sources. For the last fiscal year 2016-17, energy generation by RES were 7% only of the total electrical energy generation. In this little amount of 7%, contribution by different renewable energy sources is shown in pie diagram. Continue reading

Relevance of Student Projects in Engineering Education in India

Education is regarded as one of the most critical component which contributes to social, political, cultural and economic transformation of a community and later a country. The prosperity of any nation is intrinsically linked to its human resources. The strength of a nation is dependent on its intellectual and skillful citizens. But the definition of intellectual and skillful citizens changes from time to time. Like in today’s scenario merely taking a degree or a diploma doesn’t make you skilled, and you need to learn to apply your knowledge in real sense.

Therefore, the responsibility comes upon the system to update the curriculum and the pedagogy as per the demand of the society. Infact major educational reforms could be seen in these areas by the leading institutions. In this technical age of Make in India the most important requirement from a professional graduate is to be industry ready and for that an institution is required to offer industry relevant curriculum and a pedagogy which imparts active learning, team work and problem solving attitude.
