CPRI (Central Power Research Institute) was established by the Government of India in 1960 with headquarters in Bangalore. The Institute was re-organized into an autonomous Society in the year 1978 under the aegis of the Ministry of Power, Government of India. The main objective of setting up the Institute is to serve as a national Level laboratory for undertaking applied research in electrical power engineering besides functioning as an independent national testing and certification authority for electrical equipmentand components to ensure reliability in power systems and to innovate and develop new products.
CPRI has been taking programs in various areas of electrical power generation, transmission and distribution in the endeavor to assist utilities to supply reliable, uninterrupted and quality services to the consumers. The broad objectives with the research projects are taken up in CPRI are
- Offering technical advice and trouble shooting.
- Product development and improvement to meet global standards.
- Bridging the gap in testing and developing special testing technologies.
- Large collaborative research projects with utilities and industries.
- Electrical products and process improvement
While some of the programme are undertaken in collaboration with industries and utilities, other are taken up in-house to develop the expertise and infrastructure the power sector. The project proposals are planned well in advance keeping in mind the needs of the industry /utilities and are cleared by the committee on Research.
