5 Day Course on Modern Power Distribution Systems By IIT Indore
This course will present a historical overview of the progress of automation in distribution systems. Various contemporary issues that are relevant for the modern distribution systems will be discussed. Distribution automation will be defined and a detailed discussion of
distribution automation functions will be presented. This will be followed by cost/benefit analysis of distribution automation functions with mapping of the functions to various expected benefits. Examples of expressions needed to compute benefits will be provided. In
addition, the course will discuss basics of distribution system planning, reliability, and analysis. Finally, various emerging issues for distribution systems and associated research opportunities will be covered. The goal of this course is to understand the evolution of
distribution systems and examine challenges and opportunities associated with modern distribution systems. The course will be useful for the individuals from industry as well as researchers and academicians working in power systems.

Dr. Anil Pahwa received PhD from Texas A&M University in 1983, MS from the University of Maine in 1979, and BE (Honors) from BITS-Pilani, India in 1975, all in electrical engineering. His research and teaching interests include smart grid, distribution system planning, intelligent computational methods for power systems, renewable energy, and sustainability. He has served in many leadership positions in IEEE PES over the past 20 years. As chair of PEEC of IEEE PES from 2011 to 2013, he actively set new directions for the research and education agenda to advance electric power and energy systems worldwide. He was an editor from 2010 to 2015 of IEEE
Transactions on Power Systems. He has served on the Advisory Committee of DistribuTECH, a premier conference focused on automation of power distribution systems, for over 25 years. He served as a Senior Scientific Advisor in Economic Policy Office of East Asian and Pacific Affairs Bureau of the U.S. Department of State as a part of the fellowship. Dr. Pahwa has worked on several research projects sponsored by the utilities in Kansas, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Energy. His research on power and energy has taken him
to several countries including Australia, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Cape Verde, and Turkey. As a faculty adviser for the student chapter of Engineers Without Borders, he has guided students on projects in India, Guatemala, and Ecuador. From 2007 to 2011, Dr. Pahwa served as the electrical engineering coordinator for a World Bank-funded project to strengthen higher education in Afghanistan. The National Academies selected him for the Jefferson Science Fellowship in 2014. Dr. Pahwa received the Staszesky Distribution Automation Award in 2012 and Prize Paper Award in 2013 from IEEE PES. He received Erickson Public Service Award in 2011 and Frankenhoff Outstanding Research Award in 2012 from the College of Engineering of Kansas State University.
