Abstract

Monitoring and Control of an In-House Steam Power Plant: A Support of the Idea of Distributed Power Generation

Pragyaditya Das, S Kumaran and Barath Kanna C

As the world is getting more and more sensitive towards the use of energy, it is moving their focus towards independent and distributed ways of generation of energy. Distributed Generation (DG) based on Renewable Energy Technologies (solar, wind, hydro and biomass) is becoming a more important energy option in the future generation system. What we are trying to implement is breaking the large central power plant into multiple smaller, non-centralized power plants. In this way, each user can generate the appropriate amount of power they need and subsequently result in an efficient usage. We will be distributing a centralized energy generation point into a network on smaller energy generation points we will call this network as a “grid”. We will also be simulating our idea to verify our claim. In the longer-term, a system-wide approach for determining Distributed Generation costs and benefits should be adopted.
