About Me:

On the research front, I have completed my doctoral degree in the field of Power Electronics and Electric Drives. My doctoral dissertation looks at the use of a relatively improved methodology employing Genetic Algorithm based Extended Kalman filter for sensorless vector control of Induction motor drives particularly used in Electric Vehicles. I am actively working in the areas of Intelligent Control of motor drives in Electric Vehicles, design of high gain dc-dc power converters suitable for fast battery charging in Electric Vehicles/ DC Microgrid, development of smart sustainable systems using IOT for smart cities and remote/virtual laboratories.

I have about 8 and half years of experience in teaching. I am a Senior Member of the IEEE and hold society memberships of Power Electronics, Industrial Applications and Power and Energy. I have received the Best Project Guide Award for the project titled Fabrication of Potable Solar Water Purifier and the Best Paper Presenter Award for the research article Performance Analysis of 5-level inverter for Hybrid Distribution Generation System. I have delivered a Keynote address on “Smart Grid and Smart City – A Global Innovation Arena” at IEEE, 2019 International Conference on Power, Energy and Innovation (ICPEI) conducted by Electrical Engineering Academic Association, Thailand. I am a Reviewer Member of various international journals and conferences, including IEEE/Elsevier
