Tata Power-DDL, Deakin University Collaborates to Develop Accurate Power Forecasting Solutions

Tata Power Delhi Distribution (TP-DDL) and Deakin University have announced collaboration to develop an accurate Power Forecasting Solutions through intense research programs.

With the rapid changes in the power sector and the adoption of new technologies like Distribution Energy Resources, power resilience will be the key challenge. The aim of this partnership will be to develop solutions for the short term, long term and day-ahead scheduling of power. The two organizations will also work on the areas of Microgrids for development of future energy systems.

The Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) was signed between Prof. Iain Martin, vice chancellor (Deakin University) and Sanjay Kumar Banga, CEO, Tata Power-DDL in the presence of M Shenbagam, COO, Tata Power-DDL and other senior officials of Deakin.

The two organizations will mutually work towards creating solutions in the field of power distribution through discussions and compound research on technically and commercially detailed information, logistics, data flow, technical infrastructure, policies, specializations and business-development models shared between them.

“It is a vision of Tata Power DDL to present itself as a future-ready utility in terms of innovation and learning. We understand that now, smart solutions and renewable sources would take the centre stage, thus we are constantly integrating new technologies in our processes. I believe the collaboration between business and academia drives knowledge exchange and innovation, and that innovation is what underpins economic and societal growth. This co-innovation partnership with Deakin will enable us to develop cutting-edge solutions which will not only help Tata Power-DDL but other power Utilities also to address the fundamental challenges of smart power distribution and to develop Utilities of the future.” said Banga.

With India changing and achieving new heights, the electricity demands have also increased unexpectedly and a massive responsibility lies on the installed generating capacity to meet these ever-rising demands. It is imperative to understand that to make the power grid more resilient and enhance the efficiency of power distribution to every nook and corner, new solutions and renewable energy sources need to be integrated into the system.

Professor Iain Martin said that the engagement with one of the leading power distribution companies in India, Tata Power-DDL, gives them confidence that they will develop effective new solutions to change how power is distributed in India and have a genuine impact on the consumers it serves and the industry as a whole. “We are extremely excited at the prospect of what our joint initiative will achieve.”
