India Smart Grid Forum (ISGF) has been organizing Distribution Utility Meet (DUM) since 2017.The first edition of DUM in 2017 was hosted by Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM) in November 2017 in Bangalore and the second edition was hosted by Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (Tata Power – DDL) and Tata Power Mumbai Mumbai in November 2018. Further details will be available at

Mr. Reji Pilliai, President, ISGF said that “The Story of Haryana Discom’s turn around in last 3 years is very inspiring for other state government owned Discoms in India. From a loss of over Rs. 2200 Crore in 2015, the Haryana Discom’s have made a profit of Rs. 400 Crore in 2018. This was made possible by the management team with focus and dedication who were allowed to execute the plan without political interference. The CMD of the Haryana Discom’s is the same for last 4 years. This is an excellent example that there should be a stable leadership in Discom’s. Distribution Utility Meet has emerged as a unified platform of the Discom’s in the country to voice their concerns about common issues as well as learn from each other in their grid modernization journey”

Battery Stack Monitor Maximizes Performance of Li-Ion Batteries in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

Cosimo CarrieroField Applications Engineer, Analog Devices, Inc.AbstractLithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries are a popular way to store energy in electric and hybrid vehicles. These batteries offer the highest energy density of any current battery technology, but to maximize performance, a battery monitoring system (BMS) is mandatory. A state-of-the-art BMS not only allows you to extract the highest quantity of charge from your battery pack, but also lets you manage the charge and discharge cycles in a safer way, which results in an extended life. Analog Devices provides a full portfolio of BMS devices with focus on accuracy and robust operation.Accurately measuring a battery’s state of charge (SOC) increases battery run time or decreases weight. A precise and stable device does not require factory calibration after PCB assembly. Stability over time improves safety and avoids warranty problems. A self-diagnostics feature helps reach the right automotive safety integrity level (ASIL). A batt…
