Young research Meet 2017,
The Young Researchers’ Meet (YRM) is an initiative of IEEE PES Bangalore Chapter to evoke desire among young research-ers to play a major role in the scientific progress in the area of Power and Energy Systems. The YRM brings together young, forward thinking Ph.D. students and researchers, along with industry professionals and academicians.
The YRM is an interactive workshop devoted to the discussion and the interchange of new developments and ideas in Power and Energy. The workshop is primarily aimed at graduate & Post Graduate students, and young professionals intend to pursue Ph.D program and are working in the area of Power and Energy.
The main purpose of this workshop is to provide a platform for young researchers, both experimentalists and theorists, to interact and form collaborations across different domains of Power and Energy Systems.
The workshop is organized in two sessions: First session will have experts from organizations like GE, ABB, PRDC, and various elite academic institutes speaking about on–going research as well as prospective research work in the Power and Energy Systems. Second session will focus on mentoring. A mentor will work with a group of participants focusing in a particular area on ways to tackle various challenges encountered in research. A mentor will be devoted to an active research field in Power and Energy Systems such as Smart Grids, Micro Grids, Power Quality and Reliability, Power System Planning & Operation, Power system Dynamics, FACTS, Renewable Energy Integration, Solid State Lighting and Controls, Energy Management etc.
The main objectives of the meet are
To bring focus on the direction of research
To create awareness in the thrust areas
To discuss the practical and implementation problems
To provide a platform to share and learn
To discuss about necessary skills for research
