## Operation and Planning of Power Distribution Systems

**Operation and Planning of Power Distribution Systems**. Instructor: Prof. Sanjib Ganguly, Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. IIT Guwahati. Due to the inception of various automation technologies and integration of distributed energy resources, the electrical power distribution systems are slowly transformed into smart and active networks. This course will provide an overview of modern power distribution systems. The course will start with the discussions of different components and layouts of power distribution systems, load models, different reliability assessment techniques, and different planning approaches. The conventional reactive power compensation techniques will also be covered. Then, the impact of distributed generation on distribution systems will be discussed. Modeling of different types of distributed generation units and storage will also be discussed. Finally, the evolution of distribution systems toward smart networks will be covered.
