It is happy to share a wonderful session about the present power scenario in India and World over countries discussion the top topic is Brown vs Green power for save environment and avoiding the such worst conditions in global warming situation. In this aspect IGEN jointly work with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Goal 7 target to be discussed on clean energy environment to the Nations/World. The development and importance of Brown Power vs Green Power subjects are discussed with eminent speaker for sharing a knowledge with student, Industry and Academic persons for importance of present power situation in India/world. Based on the condition, IGEN GENDISTRANCON EVENT is conducted by the Institutions of Green Engineers with partners of Power Projects, Chennai and CMRIT, Bangalore.

IGEN GENDISTRANCON event means Generation, Transmission and Distribution Conference. Normally Generation Transmission Distribution in the present situation. In future it changes from GTD to GDT.

On 24th July 2020 IGEN GENDISTRANCON Pre-meet event conducted through Vitual media and live in youtube IGENSDG plus channel. In the pre-meet event, Welcome address by Dr.L.Ramesh, President, IGEN, Chief Guest Er. Eric Boem, Audivo, Germany and Er.

On 25.07.2020, IGEN GENDISTRANCON 2020 meeting started at 9:30 AM and finishing by 14:30 PM. In the meeting moderated by Prof. Dr. Rengaraj, Velammal Engineering College, Chennai, Welcome address by Dr.J.Balamurugan, Vice President, IGEN, About IGEN delivered by Dr.L.Ramesh, President, IGEN, About this IGEN GENDISTRANCON 2020 delivered by Er. S.Senthilkumar and released the inaugural IGEN GENDISTRANCON video by Chief Guest Er. B.B. Mehta, Director/SLDC, Odisha Power Transmission Corporation Limited.

On 25th July 2020 meeting, inaugural address the Chief Guest of the event by Er. B.B. Mehta, Director/SLDC, Odisha Power Transmission Corporation Limited talked about the current scenario of wind and solar development and utilization in India and appreciated the IGEN activities. The following points are highlighted in the event,

  1. As per our Honorable Prime minister of India guidance, to implemented the green, clean power environment to the national based on the International standards
  2. Green power is fully harnessing for creating a green/clean environment.
  3. As per the direction of MNRE/NITIAYOG, implemented the more RE power to plays a major role and harness the wind/solar power
  4. Technology is to improve essential in inverter, solar production
  5. Improve the technology in forecasting and scheduling in RE power is essential

On 25th July 2020, the following eminent speakers are present the views and development about the Brown vs Green Power and it is useful and valuable to the currently pursuing in Graduate, Post Graduate, Research Scholar and industry Professionals.

The program categorized under SDG Goal - 7, the 4 eminent speakers presented the green/clean power and present power position in India.


Round :1 Talk session presented by

Speaker :1

Er.N.Nallarasan, I.E.S., CGM(I/C), NRLDC, POSOCO, INDIA

Talk Title: Indian Power System - Present and Future Challenges

Er. N.Nallarasan discussed about the present power scenario and future scenario. The main thing of the past and future 10 years, electricity lot of changes and development in power production side.

Abudant power is available in the eastern region and defict power at southern region. Based on the that, lot of transmission lines and generation side improvemnt in renewable power. Main activities of the power sector are to balance the load and generation based on the frequency range.

In Indian grid, previously asynchronousand synchronous mode system and facing lot of problems in Southern Region. Now one gridone nation and power transfer problems are solved and there is no transmission constraint in the present sytem,.

Presently integrate the more RE power and create the clean green power to the system and there is no transmission constraints. As per MOP, MNRE, CERC and NITIAYOG had take lot of initiatives for large scale RE integration, viz., Transmission planning, technical standards, flexibility and forecasting, scheduling and imbalances.

Dr.Uma Rajarathanam, Vice President, Enzen Global Solutions

Talk Title: Demand Side Management & Energy Efficiency

Dr. Uma Rajarathanam presents a demand side management and future upcoming technologies in power sector. India emerging trends are 175 GW of renewable by 2022, significant electric vehicles by 2030 and Low wind, solar energy prices

Indian power sector ready to face challenges are Maintaining grid stability with intermittent generation, generation scheduling due to forecast errors, high ramping requirements of thermal plants, reducing technical losses and huge infrastructure upgrade costs.

High light the performance contracting framework in step by step approach to implementing solutions foe energy saving activities in Industries and mention the guaranteed savings as calculated from the baseline data.

Er.Anil Thomas,I.E.S., Head - PSP, DNVGL, Former Joint Director, CEA, New Delhi

Talk Title: Challenges in Integrating Renewable Energy

Er. Anil Thomas presents the challenges in integrating renewable energy in the present and future scenario of the Indian power system. High light of the integration points are highly weather dependent larger requirement of balancing resources, challenges in accurate forecasting of renewable generation, high ramp rates of wind & solar, telemetry of renewable generation, dynamic behavior and inertial response

Round:2 Debate Round Student Vs Student

On 25th July, 2020, a debate was organized with the students as participant speakers as IGEN was looking forward to know what is that the new generation expects from us to meet our energy requirements and also how we can have green earth conserved for our next generation with various technological improvements.

Three rounds were conducted in the debate session. Round 1 was a general awareness about green and brown power with topic of discussion being Is green power- Green? Is brown power – Brown?. Round 2 was about -Can we 100% switch over to brown power? Round 3 was panel discussion about impact and importance on society and economy for green power versus brown power. There were two teams who participated in the debate. Team A represented Green Power consisting of Ms. N. Janashri, ECE-1yr, Vivekananda College of Engineering, Tamilnadu, Ms. A. Rethika, EEE- 3yr, CMRIT, Bangalore, Mr. Abdul Karim Sam, CSE, Sierra Leone, Africa and Team B represented Brown Power consisting of Ms. Noor Ulfath, EEE – 3yr CMRIT, Bangalore, Mr. Naga Murugan, Mechanical – 3yr, Sriram Engineering College, Tiruvallur Dist, and Mr. Vikram - EEE – 3yr CMRIT, Bangalore. The event moderator was Dr. Ishrat Meera Mirzana, Professor, MJCET, Telangana.

The debate concluded with the remarks that change is the need of the hour, so we need to shift ourselves from Brown power to Green power and it has to be gradual transformation so as to not effect the economy as well as the high energy demand that is being met with brown power currently. The debate was appreciated and well taken by the dignitaries as well as the YouTube participants.


Round: 3 My Interesting Journey from Brown vs Green by Dr. Kothari, Former Director, IIT Delhi.

 Dr. Kothari addressed about the journey from brown vs green power and interesting deliver the lecture about research works and presentation.

Round:4 Panel Discussion

Brown Vs Green Power with the chief guest of the event and Eminent Speakers of the event are participated and discuss about the importance of green power integration and facing difficulties in Real time.

During the event lot questions are raised by the expert from academics, industry and participants for utilization of RE power, future perspective and research oriented.


Round: 5 Concluding remarks

Concluding remarks addressed by Er.S.Selvakumar, CEO, Power Projects discuss about the Brown vs Green Power

At present brown power plays a major role for supply the demand requirement and one third of the renewable power support to the system. For save our environment purpose, establish the more renewable power integration with the system and meet out the entire demand by RE power without any technical difficulties. As of now Indian power system ready integrate the more RE power to the system.
