Senior Engineer – Design & Development

Values and Principles are the top-most priority for me. I believe in optimism, physical & intellectual balance along
with a rational, systematic and responsible approach by respecting individuality, originality and creativity.
A renewable energy engineer with a background of electronics engineering & a demonstrated history of working
in the renewable industry since 3+ years. Skilled in Solar PV (on grid/off grid), offshore wind and energy storage
systems. Innovative re-designing skills and a strong believer in social innovation through technology.

Jun 2016 - Senior Engineer - Design & Development
Present Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy

 Currently working on DC PLCC (DC power line communication)
scheme for MW scale PV plants, which will help in transmitting
"String" and "PV module health data” over the existing DC power
cables in a solar PV plant instead of using separate BOP for
monitoring and O&M.
 Also working towards design and sizing of energy storage system
which shall work alongside a generation forecasting module to
ensure minimum deviation from committed generation profile for
a power producer.
 Redesigned Gamesa Electric Central Inverter (1000V model) to
Address accommodate ACB inside the Inverter enclosure, simultaneously
