Program Description

With the ever-increasing demand for electric power and imminent exhaustion of fossil fuels, tapping the renewable energy sources for power generation seems the most obvious solution to bridge the demand and supply gap. This course on Renewable Energy and Power Evacuation discusses the available Renewable Energy options and the challenges faced in harnessing the power from these sources. The course further elaborates on how to generate power from solar and wind power plants commercially and technologically viable. The learner is taken through the various energy-storage technologies available with specific detailing on battery technology and its advancements. Case Studies on large scale implementation of solar plants and wind power plants are deliberated using software tools like PVSyst and SAM. Do it yourself problem statements from industry on Solar PV design using MATLAB/PVSyst/SAM is also provided to the learners to get hands on experience on the subject.


  • Create awareness and understanding of the Fossil fuel dependency in current power generation scenario and the need to migrate to cleaner and renewable energy sources
  • Explain various forms of renewable energy
  • Illustrate the design aspects involved in renewable power generation, especially from Solar and Wind energy Sources
  • Illustrate the energy storage strategies including Battery and Hydrogen storage
  • Illustrate how grid Integration is done for the energy generated from Renewable Energy Sources
