Program- MS Electrical (Power System) Finally, confused between 3- NCSU, Virginia Tech, and TU Delft. Out of the currently received admits, which will be the best. (Considering- University Program Reputation, Academic Strength, Job/Intern Prospects) I like 3-4 professors in each of the above universities and their ongoing projects. This has made me more confused. Please help. Have to decide one by April first week. ---- Thanks in advance!!!

This system uses solar energy, which is a renewable source of energy, to produce electricity, which is then provided to our â€œsmart homeâ€. Thus, we are producing electricity for our â€œsmart homesâ€ with the help of a renewable source of energy, thereby, saving the nuclear and fossil fuels, which are non-renewable sources of energy. By the use of above concept, we can turn a normal city, to a smart city and save nationâ€™s nonrenewable resources by large percentage improving our countryâ€™s economy. Also proportion of pollution content will be reduced by much large amount thus minimizing global issues of Greenhouse Effect, Global Warming and Climatic Changes. 3)Fractional Frequency Transmission Description: The methodology behind fractional frequency transmission uses a reduced frequency level for the transmission of the power. The frequency of the transmission is reduced to one third the original value i.e. 50/3 Hz. Now at the generating end, once the voltage level is stepped up by using a transformer there is a cyclo-converter system which is placed next to the transformer. The power then reaches to the cyclo-converter where the frequency is reduced to 50/3 Hz. The power at the output of the cyclo-converter is fed to the transmission line. The power signal then reaches to the receiving end where it again undergo a frequency conversion and the frequency of the power is stepped up to 50 Hz so as to make it usable for the transformer which is designed to work on 50 Hz. This technique reduces the electrical length of the ac power line, and thus, its transmission capability can be increased several fold.
