I received the B.E. degree in electrical engineering from Jadavpur University, Calcutta, India, in 1993, the M.E. degree in electrical engineering from Bengal Engineering College, Howrah, India, in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, Kharagpur, India, in 2003. Since 1993, I have spent almost two and a half years in the industry, first with Andrew Yule and Co. Ltd., Brentford Unit. Electrical Division, India and then with Siemens Ltd., Projects Division, India. I started my teaching career as a lecturer at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Jadavpur University, Kolkata in June 2002. I am at present an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), Shibpur, Howrah, India. I am also a Visiting (Research) Professor with the Centre for Hybrid Automotive Research and Green Energy (CHARGE) lab, University of Windsor, Windsor, Canada. My collaborative research with Prof. Narayan Kar, CHARGE, University of Windsor, Canada has so far yielded joint supervision of three doctoral research scholars and about fifteen IEEE transaction papers. Two of these scholars have visited me at IIEST Shibpur and both stayed for about two months for their research in my laboratory at IIEST Shibpur. My research interests include Electrical Machines, Electrical Drives, and other Power Electronic applications, particularly targetted to Electrified Vehicles, Distributed Generation and Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS). I am a regular reviewer of research manuscripts for IET Generation, Transmission, Distribution; IET Electric Power Applications; IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion; IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics. I am, at present, a Senior Member of IEEE, USA and have delivered invited lectures at Imperial College, London. UK, University of Victoria, Canada, University of Windsor, Canada, National Institute of Durgapur, Indian Institute of Mizoram, India ans SASTRA University, India. I am also a part of a team of six teaching faculties passionate about Power Electronics, Machines and Drives in the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIEST Shibpur and I have done my little bit towards building the state-of-the-art Advanced Power Electronics Laboratory of this department from 2006-2011.
B.E. (Electrical) from Jadavpur University, India in 1993;
M.E. (Electrical) from Bengal Engineering College (Deemed University), India in 1998;
Ph.D – from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India in 2003.
I undertake research in the following areas:
(1) Electric Machines and Drives targetted towards Electrified Vehicles - I strive towards analysis, design, development and testing of electrical machines and drives with large power/torque densities, high efficiency, less cost and large constant power speed range (CPSR). To be more particular, I am at present pursuing R&D on novel brushless sustainable synchronous machines and drives
(2) Power Electronic Converter systems targetted towards distributed generation - I strive towards analysis, design, development and testing of power electronic converter systems with high efficiency and large gain for grid integration powered from solar PV arrays/modules and also from wind power
(3) Power Electronic Converter systems for FACTS - I strive towards analysis, development of novel control algorithms for such power controllers and subsequent testing
(4) Charging of battry packs of Electric Vehicle - I strive towards analysis, development and testing of different conductive and inductive charging techniques through power electronics; I am particularly interested towards the novel concept of integrated charging
