Designing and developing electronic systems for a greater tomorrow by smartly utilizing the present technology to address future challenges.
My research interests include Power Electronics, Electromagnetics, Transient Surge Protection and Power Quality, Frequency Domain Circuit Modelling, Transformer Design, High Frequency Magnetics, Supercapacitor Applications, and Engineering physics.Following are some of my previous experiences in Research and Development:• Development of high-performance surge protectors (research collaboration with Magnetics® Inc. USA) using the latest commercial magnetic materials (Kool Mµ, High-Flux, X-Flux, Edge powder cores and Soft-Ferrites) manufactured by Magnetics Inc. • Permeance based theoretical modelling of surge protector circuits and high-voltage testing using standard lightning surge simulators (LSS-6230 and LSS-F03).• Research collaboration with Thor Technologies, Australia – surge endurance evaluation of commercial surge protectors according to Underwriters’ Laboratory test procedures. • Electromagnetic transient analysis and frequency domain circuit modelling.• Designing of data acquisition systems and computer interfacing techniques based on MATLAB.• Automation of supercapacitor surge testing.• Supercapacitor applications of power electronic circuits.• Transformer design using powdered-iron magnetic materials and air-gapped ferrites.• EV charging applications: efficiency analysis of fast DC chargers and AC chargers.
