ABB India and IIT Madras to improve electricity access in remote areas

Power and automation technology firm ABB India and IIT Madras have signed a MoU to develop a power management system to optimise the electricity supply to villages. ABB will work with IIT Madras to develop a power system to improve operation of multiple microgrids, with and without grid connection. The new system is being developed as part of the UDAY scheme and will also enable the integration of individual solar PV rooftops to a village microgrid. The project scope includes microgrids of 20 to 100 kW capacity equipped with battery storage. Detailed studies and simulation of the various system components along with related control and optimisation logics, protection criteria, monitoring and communication will also be undertaken.
