Hi! I am Nishant Arora. I have completed my Bachelor's from Thapar University, Patiala. I am currently pursuing my Master's in Electrical Engineering from Michigan Technological University. I have done research in Solar Photovoltaics specifically on revival of field aged solar plants. Have adept knowledge on Microgrids and Power system protection.

I have always been keen to explore new horizons, meet new people and making ends meet to learn effective ways to perform practically. With my Working knowledge of subjects,in spring 2016 I got an opportunity to work as a Research Intern at National Institute of Solar Energy, Gurgoan. A Government of India Initiative. Wherein I did research on field aged Solar Photovoltaics, this made me proficient in revival of field aged solar plants and reduction of degradation rate of SPV. My skills were recognized by Professor A.Kulkarni, and he made me his assistant in his new subject Physics and Technology of Renewable Energy for fall 2016. Further, my stellar performance in coursework was noticed by professor Sumit paudyal and he offered me assistant position for spring 2017.

Because of my constant hardworking nature, I was given the opportunity to become Cultural head of North India’s biggest college festival “SATURNALIA- TECHNO CULTURAL FEST”, I have organized national level cultural competitions.
