Research Experience

Research Interests : Power Electronic Systems, High Voltage Engg., Condition Monitoring of Power Transformers, Electrical Machines and Energy Systems
Brief Research Profile : Condition assessment of power transformers has been a widely open multi engineering disciplinary field of research. With emerging trends in newer insulation materials, IOT applications and sensors, the trends of built in- on line tools to monitor the key electrical health parameters have remarkable impact in asset management. The researchers have established that there exist lot of scope of academic collaboration between academicians, power equipment manufacturers and application field utility engineers for putting up co-ordinated effort to solve pertinent issues concerning enhancement of useful life span of existing substation power apparatus/transformers in preventing catastrophic failures. It can also help in ensuring smooth reliable supply of electric power to all stakeholders in national endeavor.
