Paper Title:

An Overview and Issues of Smart Grid and its Integration with Renewable Energy

Abstract:  Global Energy Sector largely relies on combustion of energy sources viz. fuel-oil and natural gas. However, these energy sources are becoming scarce day by day. On the other hand, global energy consumption is at its verge and is believed to triplicate by 2050. Hence, transformation of power networks into intelligent system is a viable option that can save energy, utilize renewable energy and ensure supply security. The energy sector encourages the use of renewable energy sources as it aims at reducing carbon footprint and promoting clean energy. Keeping these facts together with the issues of climate change and socio-economic challenges of current century, the need of hour is to use electric network as a Smart Grid. This paper highlights various Smart grid initiatives and their implications along with the issues involved with the development of Smart Grid Technology.

Paper Title:

Analysis of Inter-Area Oscillations and A Case Study of Two Area System

Abstract:   The inter-area oscillations are highly non-linear and complex in nature. They are not easily damped by the conventional Power System Stabilizers. They cause the interruptions in the flow of bulk power in between two areas and sometimes they may cause the breaking of power system, if not damped sufficiently. Inter-Area oscillations contribute significant importance because they involve various units belonging to different areas in power system. They may cause greater oscillations in the tie line connecting various units. To analyse these inter-area oscillations, the entire power system has to be represented in detail. The analysis has also be done on how the certain quantity of power is transferred from one area to another which are interconnected by tie- line.

Paper Title:

Survey of Information Systems Undergraduate Programmes Taught at Saudi Arabian Universities

Abstract:  This paper is the result of a survey of 25 Saudi Arabian university's colleges teaching undergraduate programmes in Information Systems (IS). Many of these universities are in the process of making their courses accredited by external creditors, such as ABET. This paper attempts to examine the common characteristics of these ABET accredited-oriented Information Systems (IS) undergraduate programmes. The paper also looks at the common trends in the courses of the Information Systems programmes of these universities. As a result of this analysis, the paper will also briefly explore how Information Systems design in many Saudi Arabian is designed to be more science-oriented than business-oriented programmes because of ABET accreditation influence.

Paper Title:

Performance Study of Integrated Solar/Wind Energy Conversion System into Smart Grid

Abstract:   The limited global stock of fossil and nuclear fuel resources has coerced an urgency for alternative sources of energy. The utilization of distributed energy resources is accrediting day by day and is being pursued as a supplement and an alternative to large conventional central power stations. Hybrid renewable energy systems such as wind-solar energy based sources are feasible and reliable options. Smart grid system embodies three key characteristics namely: performance optimization, system reliability and operational efficiency. In the present communication a novel model of smart grid-connected PV/WT hybrid system has been developed. It consists of photovoltaic array, DFIG wind turbine, controller and converters. The proposed model has been executed using MATLAB/SIMULINK software package. Perturb and Observe (P&O) algorithm has been applied for maximizing the generated power based on maximum power point tracker (MPPT) implementation. The proposed model and its control strategy offer a proper tool for smart grid performance optimization.
