Work Experience:

Volunteer Research Assistant: Dec 2016 – Dec 2017

Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL

Responsibilities include developing, design and testing of power system dynamic models using PSS/E, C, PYTHON and MATLAB/Simulink for dynamic stability assessment.

Successfully implemented exciter, governor and HVDC line dynamic models.

Learned python by self and implemented automation scripts for running simulation using PSS/E and MATLAB/Simulink platforms.

Research Associate: Dec 2017 – July 2018

Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL

Wrote some python scripts for bus mapping project of two different utility power system networks.

Implemented forward depth one-line diagram using Tkinter python module for graphic visualization of power system network


PSS/E, MATLAB/Simulink, python

Proficient with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint Projects:

Power System Reliability Analysis

Reliability indices are calculated using MATLAB programming for a 5 bus network consisting of 3 generators and 2 loads with single branch contingency and without contingency.

From the results managers can take appropriate decision to improve the load curtailment by buying power from neighbors, installing new generators or transmission lines which eventually improve the reliability of the system.

Power System Contingency analysis

When a fault occur the immediate reaction in power system network are violation of bus voltage limits and branch flow limits.

By using 1p1q technique performed a security analysis in MATLAB on IEEE 30 bus system for each generator contingency and branch contingency and ranked them in the severity order. Power System Optimal Power flow Analysis

Any contingency in network results in shift operating point to a stable or unstable positions.

Optimal power flow analysis performed by adding a severe contingency as a constraint and solves for the new operating point which works well even the contingency occurs in future. Scheduling of micro grids:

Reviewed different types of IEEE papers and made a report on different types of methods in scheduling of micro grid generation

Power System Planning, Scheduling and Maintenance

Write a script for bender's decomposition in Matlab to perform power system planning

Maintenance and scheduling of generators are performed for one year with minimum on/off constraints in Excel

Performed cost effective analysis on planning of generation and transmission lines for future load growth scenarios

Membership and volunteer activities:

IEEE PES member

As a Rotaract member, volunteered for blood donation camps and traffic awareness activities

Volunteered for IEEE PES general meeting for one day

Volunteered for “WE ARE 4 HELP” organization, which runs by students to help poor people, during bachelor’s degree
