Biography[edit | edit source]
I am a Graduate Student in Electrical and Computer Department at Michigan Technological University with main area of concentration in Power Systems.I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Gujarat Technological University in India.I did Post Graduation Diploma Certificate in Industrial Automation gaining some industrial experience working with PLC's, SCADA and other automation systems. Power System Operations and Protection are two main fields in which I am interested. Renewable Energy Sources where always there in market but with improved material science and mechanical designs they are now capable of working independently in their own Grid. Integrating this Renewable Energy sources Photovoltaics with conventional Grid is the main challenge in Energy market. Development in communication systems and with better measuring instruments Smart Grids are developed which are more reliable and Stable.
