Power electronic technology plays a vital role in today’s energy systems in terms of efficient energy conversion, integration of dispersed energy resources, electric vehicles, etc. My research areas mainly involve power electronics and their applications in renewable energy, distributed generation (DG), microgrid, electric vehicles, electric motor drives, and custom power devices (for power quality improvement). The research interests of my group include power converter topologies, pulse-width-modulation (PWM) techniques, modeling and digital control of power electronics, grid synchronization techniques, etc.
Grid integration of renewable energy systems (PV, wind) and energy storage systems.
Modeling, control and energy management of microgrid and active/smart distribution systems.
Ancillary services through grid-interfacing power converters.
High power converters and industrial drives.
