Integrating Renewable Energy and Smart Grid Technology into the South Asian Electricity Grid System (Published)

The electricity situation in South Asian can be described as epileptic with no sign in view of improvement. This epileptic power situation affects the manufacturing, service and residential sectors of the economy which in turn affects the country’s economic growth. Even with the recent reforms in the power sector, more than half of the country’s population still lack access to electricity. The epileptic condition of the power sector can be attributed to the inadequate and inefficient power plants, poor transmission and distribution facilities, and outdated metering system used by electricity consumers. This paper attempts to present the way forward for the South Asian    poor electricity situation by reviewing the power sector as a whole and the renewable energy potentials. We identified the problems in the national grid and then proposed a smart grid model for the South Asian    power sector which will include renewable energy source. We believe that the content of this re-view paper will solve the poor epileptic condition of the power sector in South Asian and also enable the proper integration of smart grid technology into the national grid.

Smart Vertical Axis Highway Wind Turbine (Published)

Energy is an important aspect of our everyday life. The resources we use are limited whereas the population consuming the same is increasing day by day. Nowadays the requirement for electricity is much higher than its generation; hence the main objective of our work is to produce electricity at low cost with no effect on the environment. The objective of the work is to design a wind turbine to recapture wind energy from vehicles on the highway. A considerable amount of wind energy is produced due to the pressure difference created by the moving vehicles on the highways. This wind energy can be utilized for the generation of electrical energy with the help of vertical axis wind turbines. This work aims to extract this energy in the most efficient manner. A vertical axis wind turbine can be installed on the median of the roads so that the wind from both sides of the median will act tangentially in opposite directions on both sides of the turbine thereby increasing the effective wind speed acting on the turbine. This wind flow will depend on the velocity of the vehicle, size of the vehicle, and intensity of the traffic. Based on the studies made an optimal wind turbine design has to be made. The wind power harnessed through this method can be used for street lighting, traffic signal lighting, toll gates, etc.
