These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJSGGC, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • Active and Reactive power control of Three phase grid connected PV System   Order a copy of this article
    by Pradipta Kumar Sahoo, Pravat Kumar Ray, Pranati Das 
    Abstract: This paper deals with active and reactive power control of a three phase grid connected photovoltaic system. Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm is used to track the MPP. The MPPT algorithm uses the IPV and VPV of the PV array and gives the MPP and a Vdc, ref. This voltage is then passed on to the inverter and then further to the three-phase grid. The behaviour of the active and reactive power of the grid which is supplied by the PV array is investigated. The various currents such as inverter current, grid current and load currents are also investigated. MATLAB/Simulink has been used to carry out the simulations. Proposed work has also been experimentally verified.
    Keywords: Photovoltaic; Instantaneous Reactive Power Theory; MPPT; Voltage Source Inverter; Hyseresis band controller.

  • An Efficient Pattern Analysis based Event Detection and Fault Localization Model for Reliable Power Transmission System   Order a copy of this article
    Abstract: The exponential rise of power demands across socio-industrial applications has motivated academia-industries to develop optimal power quality assurance to meet the requirements. The use of synchrophasor information based event detection has always been a potential solution to ensure controllability of the power systems; however assessing the gigantic real-time phasor information is often an intricate task. On contrary, accurate and timely data (feature) extraction and event detection are must for decision purposes. Recently, robustness of the soft computing techniques, particularly data mining and pattern classification approaches have gained significant attention for large sale data analysis and classification. With this motivation, in this paper we have developed a multi-stage intelligent soft computing model for event detection and fault localization using the pattern classification algorithms named, J48, Na
    Keywords: Automatic Event detection; fault localization; PMU; synchrophasor data; pattern classification.

  • Green Telecommunication-A way Forward for Green World   Order a copy of this article
    by Angshuman Khan 
    Abstract: When we discuss the field of science, every node of technical application is driven by electricity especially if telecommunication field is concerned. Though sufficient electricity is emanated by burning of coke or fossil fuel, but scientist cannot ignore the harmful effect of greenhouse gases generated from this process. If green technology is adopted, then India can reduce major portion of power loss. Greening of Telecommunication is the major breakthrough of power consumption, independent of any application which accounts for the fuel efficient equipment as well as eco-friendly designs of telecommunication networks and also disposal of tele-wastes. Enormous energy is consumed by IP based network of cloud computation which violates the main motivation of greening the environment. Term Green' taken in common with every word like codes, power amplifiers, electronics and antennas, shows the road towards green telecom. Greening of telecommunication is both a strategy and a necessity to overcome environmental pollution thus moving towards a green world. In this paper, a quantity of work has been done to come out with the re-analyzation of green telecommunication which associates the disadvantages of state of the art telecommunication technology and thus gives an idea about the best technology that can be chosen to make the environment go green.
    Keywords: Green telecommunication;Green house gases;Green networks;Green manufacturing; Sustainable technology.

  • Analysis and Assessment of Smart Grid:A Review   Order a copy of this article
    by VIKAS KHARE, Cheshta Khare, Savita Nema, Prashant Baredar 
    Abstract: Smart grid mainly based on different class of technology such as computer based remote control and automation of power or energy grid and in other way it would be a path in which transmission & distribution is control by computer and information technology based system. Smart grid is a recognized perception being rapidly introduced in the power industry and it play a key role in the development of worldwide power sector. This paper presents a review of analysis and assessment of smart grid on the basis of architectural design, communication & measurement technology, assessment of smart grid by optimization technique, reliability & economic assessment, asset management, cyber physical security, game theoretic assessment of smart grid, sustainable energy option and control system of smart grid.
    Keywords: Smart Grid; transmission & distribution system; cyber physical security.
