CPRI on its Diamond Jubilee year, is organizing National Conference on “LT/HT Switchgear & Controlgear - Smart Technologies (Switchcon2020)” on 28th & 29th February, 2020 at Bhopal.
B. M. Mehra, Unit-Head of CPRI, in his address highlighted that today India is the third largest producer of electricity in the world. To control and efficiently deliver this huge power to end-consumer is crucial and important task before the Power sector. If power is not controlled and delivered properly, it will nullify milestone achieved in power generation. In this context Switchgear is a vital component in transmission & distribution of electrical power. It is the need of hour to incorporate smart technologies in switch-gear to utilize maximum capacity of power system.
