Welcome to the Official Website of the National Power Engineering Conference NPEC-18 organized by the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department, Thiagarajar College of Engineering, Tiruparankundram, Madurai, Tamilnadu, India. Electrical Power is vital for societal development and the welfare of people. Power engineering also known as power system engineering is a subset of energy engineering and electrical engineering that deals with generation, transmission, utilization and distribution of electric power and also the electrical devices including generators, transformers and motors connected to such systems. In this context the college has regularly organized National Power Engineering Conference (NPEC) in 2005, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2015. Now, it has been planned to organize sixth ‘National Power Engineering Conference (NPEC-18)’. This conference will create an opportunity for the researchers and academicians in exploring the latest developments, practices, future trends in power engineering. This will also allow the experts in power engineering to meet, share ideas and present their original work. NPEC-18 is comprised of keynote sessions, tutorials, exhibits and regular technical sessions on latest cutting edge research technologies that address the current issues in Power Engineering sector.
