About Event:

The thirst for energy has been continuously increasing globally due to population explosion, industrial growth and urbanization.   The global annual energy consumption is projected as 16.9 TW, and a doubling of this production needs to be planned to meet the energy requirements in the next 40 years.  For the total energy requirement, 80% is generated from the firing of fossil fuel. Thus fossil fuels are the chief sources for the power generation. Unfortunately, fossil fuels may get depleted within the next six decades.  Grimmer picture is painted about the exhaustion of oil fuels by the year 2040, coal by 2030 and natural gas by 2060.
 Besides, burning of fossil fuels result in the emission of harmful pollutants, oxides and hydrocarbons into the atmosphere, which causes severe damage to the health. The above factors lead to the utilization of renewable energy sources.
Though there are many types of renewable energy sources (solar, wind, tidal, etc) available, the type of source selection depends on the location, accessibility, availability, etc. Among all the energy sources, PV power generation is the most suitable, as power generation of few KW to several MW can be performed by series and parallel connection of solar panels that can be tuned according to the voltage and current requirements.  Most regions in the Indian subcontinent are blessed with daily global radiation of 4-7 KWh/m2/day.
So arranging a workshop which deals about the following subtitles and visit to solar plant will enable the students of engineering colleges to have a good knowledge about PV Power generation and cost estimation for small applications.
