Department of EEE organizes workshop on “Design of a 9MWp Grid-Tied Solar Photovoltaic Power Plant”


On Sunday (14 July 2019), a workshop on “Design of a 9MWp Grid-Tied Solar Photovoltaic Power Plant” was held at Room No-513 of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) at University of Asia Pacific (UAP). Prof. Dr. Muhammad Riazul Hamid, CEO and Principal Consultant, Green Pro BD and former professor, Department of EEE, Ahsanuallah University of Science and Technology (AUST) was the resource person. Head of the Department, Faculty members of EEE and final year students were present on the workshop.

Prof. Riaz started the workshop by describing the current electricity generation scenario from solar energy in Bangladesh. He showed physical solar PV based Power Plant and its aspects. Later he conducted the workshop how to design a solar PV based power plant and what are the procedures to follow during design. He explained different design tools to conduct the complete task. Professor encouraged the students to learn some design software which will required in designing such type of project.

In the second half, he provided some essential career tips to the final year students to build their career in different emerging field of engineering and encouraged not to depend on job rather than try to find solutions for current problems in industry. Finally the workshop has ended by Q&A session.
