On 17th November 2021, the IEEE AIUB Student Branch in collaboration with the IEEE IAS AIUB Student Branch Chapter successfully organized a webinar session titled “Insights into the Single Line Diagram, Layout and Panel Design of MV/LV Substations” through the virtual platform of GOOGLE MEET. The major objectives of this webinar were to provide a basic understanding of single line diagrams in the power generating sector as well as constructive feedback on the challenges and opportunities that this profession offers.

The event was inaugurated by the enriching remarks from Prof. Dr. ABM Siddique Hossain, Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; who gave a brief synopsis of the power generation industry as well as the appraisal of power generation sites and the available potential in this area. Thereafter, the honorable speaker Mr. Al Amin HossainAssistant Manager, Engineering & Design (Electrical), Reverie Power & Automation Engineering Ltd. started the session by thanking the organizers for taking such a gamble in organizing this informative event. He then went over the various components of electricity generation, briefly describing the IoT technologies, why it is essential, and the doctrines of IoT. He went into great detail in his talks about the usage of DC in substations, switchgear, a single line schematic of a substation, power triangle, load flow, PFI section, and load distribution. Finally, Mr. Al Amin Hossain wrapped up the discussion by showcasing a project that his organization performed at AIUB and expressing his gratitude towards everyone. Following that, the speaker engaged in an interactive question-and-answer session in which he addressed all of the audience’s major concerns.
