National Conference on Computational Intelligence
in Power Apparatus and Systems - "CIPS2012",

Electric power systems, around the world, are changing in terms of structure, operation, management
and ownership due to technical, financial and ideological reasons. Power system keeps on expanding in terms of
geographical areas, assets additions, and penetration of new technologies in generation, transmission and
distribution. This makes the electric power system complex, heavily stressed and thereby vulnerable to
cascade outages. The conventional methods in solving the power system design, planning, operation and control
problems have been very extensively used for different applications but these methods suffer from several
difficulties due to necessities of derivative existence, providing suboptimal solutions, etc. Computation
intelligent (CI) methods can give better solution in several conditions and are being widely applied in the
Electrical Engineering applications.

This conference aims at bringing together researchers from academia and industry to report and
review the latest progresses in the cutting-edge research with the application of the soft computing techniques for
solving hard optimization power system problems, and finally to create awareness on these domains to a wider
audience of practitioners. Therefore, Scientists, academicians and researchers working in their research
areas are invited to present their research results, designs, innovative development applications, case studies,
reviews, etc. in the conference.Topics of the conference to be included but not limited to:
 Artificial Neural Networks &Fuzzy Logic Control
