Research

Increasing energy demand and environmental concerns for fossil fuel power plants have resulted in new requirement for power generation plants and their efficient control. This has resulted in an increased focus on sustainable and renewable energy resources and development of a smart grid. Smart grid is a modernized grid equipped with bidirectional power flow capability, inter-device communication, cyber and physical protection, autonomous faulty detection, self-healing and integration of green energy resources to enhance energy efficiency, quality, reliability and system security.

Much of my research focuses on renewable energy resources, their integration to conventional grid, development of algorithms for efficient utilization of Renewable Energy.
