A Conference Hall (55 seats) is also available for holding seminars, workshops and conferences. NPTI has exclusive multi-media Computer Based Training (CBT) Packages Development Centre. A GIS Resource Centre and a Computer Lab with 120 latest computer machines has also been established at the Corporate Office, Faridabad.
Centre for Advanced Management and Power Studies (CAMPS)
NPTI established a “Centre for Advanced Management and Power Studies” (CAMPS) at the Corporate Office, Faridabad for the higher echelons of the Power Sector. CAMPS has been entrusted with the responsibility for conducting Programs on Power Regulation, Power Finance, Power Environment and Power Technology interfaces etc. Power System studies focusing the recent technological advancements covering emerging areas such as Intelligent automation, Smart Grid Technology, Renewable Energy Integration with Grid Interface modules for power evacuation utilizing Smart Power Flow Controllers are also some of the niche areas. Blending frontier technologies with Management, the Centre prides itself in conducting Programs/ Workshops for working executives and freshers. Courses on Regulatory Framework are also being conducted through Distance Education Mode including assessment and evaluation by NPTI.
Under the auspices of CAMPS, issues related to Electricity Regulation, Protection of Consumer interests, Open Access and Load Dispatch, Demand Side Management and Smart Power Flow Controllers for a Smarter Grid have been the highlights of the previous years. Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation, LED Street Lighting programs, Power System Economics are some of the other disciplines which are also being addressed to meet the future needs of Power Sector.
Centre for Excellence in GIS & Remote Sensing
A Centre of Excellence in GIS (Geographical Information Systems) has been established at NPTI Complex, Faridabad. The Centre of Excellence in GIS provides a core knowledge base and disseminates geospatial knowledge to the society at large through education & training. NPTI has launched various short-term & long-term courses in GIS & Remote Sensing. During period, two short term programs and one 3 months program were conducted.
The main aim of the program is to develop a pool of trained manpower readily available for recruitment in organizations working in GIS & Remote Sensing fields. GIS & Remote Sensing technology is highly used in utility sector and is capable of carrying out complex on-line and off-line power system analysis like load flow analysis, load forecasting, route optimization, distribution planning and control, geometric network for optimum distribution of power in demanding phase. GIS & Remote Sensing also provides flexibility in analysis and through this, one can easily carry out different tasks related to power system planning and management of electricity with efficient results. GIS is also used for selection of suitable sites and for profile analysis. GIS is not only useful in developing accurate database, improve internal efficiency levels pertaining to power supply monitoring, commercial and customer services but also extremely useful for important functions like network analysis, facility management, energy audit and trouble call management. GIS also plays an important role in maintenance and monitoring systems in the Power Sector. Using, GIS, the entire electrical network can be overlaid on a satellite image or a vector base map.
