About Me:

My primary research interests are Renewable Energy, Power Electronics and Power Quality. Currently I am working on a project on ‘Development of research facility for studies on grid connected renewable energy system at distribution level’. I have worked in National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal as a research scholar. My research activities in NITK Surathkal were mainly focused on ‘Grid connection of wind-solar hybrid renewable energy system, with active power filter functionality’. I have worked in Power Development & Research Consultants Pvt. Ltd. Bengaluru as Engineer, Power System Studies. The projects handled in PRDC include power evacuation studies, design & rating for Neutral Grounding Reactor for the shunt reactor in substations, overvoltage studies, insulation co-ordination, switching transient and line impedance studies and harmonic analysis.
