Research Experience

March 2021 -to-
PhD Student Supervisor, Imperial College London, United Kingdom
Thesis Title: Stability Assessment and Enhancement of Power Systems Dominated by Inverter Based Resources Dominated
Solving the weak-grid instability problem which poses a threat to the sustainable operation of futuristic power systems
Design optimal control parameters on both AC and DC sides of VSC that ensures smooth operation of the power system
Design a coordination strategy among multiple converters to provide highly reliable power operations and market participation
Aug 2018 -to-
Dec 2018
Post-Doctoral Research Associate (Part-time), Queen Mary University London, United Kingdom
Worked on development of multi-physics sensor array for power electronic converter prognostics for electric vehicles
Created a sensing platform to quantify the health status of power electronic modules within electric vehicle drive systems, using an array of multi-physical sensors to generate a spatially sparse IMAGE of measurements. This IMAGE consists of temperature, electrical quantities (V, I, Z), mechanical displacement (wire bond movement/device deformity) at different time scales
Collaborated with four universities and two industrial partners
