Research

I broadly work in the area of Power Electronics

Over the course of my PhD, I  have worked extensively with voltage source inverters, induction motors, and their control. More specifically, I worked with the inverter dead-time effect (a system non-ideality) and dead-time induced instability issues in Volts-per-Hertz induction motor drives. Such motor drives are commonplace in fans, pumps and compressors used for various industrial applications. The work involved all aspects of research - extensive analysis, simulations and experiments.  Further, me and my advisor Prof G. Narayanan also collaborated with L&T technology services, Bangalore and Integrated Electric, Bangalore, in studying and mitigating instability observed in certain inverter-fed motor drives.

At ABB, I worked with an international R&D team on the control development and fault studies of a new Modular Multilevel Converter topology for high power HVDC power transmission. I also worked briefly on power electronic systems for FACTS and DC Traction applications.

I am interested in research on power electronic converters and systems, their modelling, control, modulation, and fault studies, for applications spanning across motor drives, HVDC and FACTS, electric traction systems, and  renewable integration.

Teaching

I aspire to bring in  aspects of practical utility, design and implementation to supplement theory in the courses which I would be offering
