Professional work Experience:

1. L&T Technology Services (Dec 2010 – Till Date)

Designation: Assistant Manager

Project 1: Design & Development of Battery energy storage system in containerized

This scope of this project is to develop battery energy storage system in containerized
environment(20’ container).This project demands the new area like seismic compliance to
critical areas, compliance with transportation norms, HVAC design and fire suppression
system design.

The tasks involved are closed co-ordination with multi functional teams, supplier, and
customer. Do requirement analysis, creating mechanical design specification, HVAC
calculation, seismic calculation & detail design

Project 2: Design & Development of Boltless NEMA explosion proof motor control device
This scope of this project is to develop Boltless, explosion proof motor control
device/enclosures for multiple configurations of circuit breakers, starters and switch

This project is a first attempt to come up with an explosion proof enclosure without using

The tasks involved are closed co-ordination with multi functional teams, supplier, and
customer. Do requirement analysis, creating mechanical design specification, strength
calculation, mechanism developments and detail design.

Project 3: Design & Development of Mid-range electrical drives, High voltage drives (At
client location USA)
This project involved in product design support for midrange electrical drives and
DFE(Diode Front End)power supplying unit. These products are used by packaging
industries, tire industries and paper mills. The products are mainly constructed by using
sheet metal, plastics.

The tasks involved are requirement analysis, creating mechanical design specification
and detail design till prototyping and manufacturing support.

Project 4: Research and development of implementing the current and voltage sensor in
single phase and 3 phase vacuum Recloser (At client location USA)
The scope of the work was to integrate six Voltage Sensing through capacitive voltage
dividers embedded in the epoxy insulation of each phase of the recloser. The capacitive
voltage sensors are isolated from the grid and are able to read phase angle and voltage
amplitude with a relatively high accuracy.

The tasks involved are to select the sensor (Resistor), check the coating provided on the
resistor, perform the design changes in the recloser to mount the sensor, check the
thermal compatibility, structural strength, prototype support, high voltage BIL, Hipot,
Partial discharge(Corona discharge) test and evaluate the results.

Project 5: Design of Multi Lumen Flood Light for Hazardous locations

This project involved in design a new flood light by using LED’s which should meet the
hazardous location application standards.
The tasks involved are requirement gathering, design specification preparation, concept
generation, detail design, FEA and CFD analysis co-ordination, tooling support, testing
support and certification support.

Project 6: Design of LED down-light

The project involved in designing the LED Down light for hazardous location. The
criticality of the project is to meet the Div1 Zone 1 hazardous locations, effective heat
sink design and rugged structure to meet the intended certification tests.

Tasks involved are from concept to market release ownership of the product

2. HCL Technologies
Designation: Design Engineer

Project 1: Design of a Hand held thermal imaging camera

The project involved in designing the hand held thermal imaging cameras which is
mainly used in surveillance purposes. The contest of the project was to the camera should
be IP-67 and more ruggedized to use in harsh environments. The range of the product is
about 500-600 meters without the extender and 1000m to 1200m with lens extender.

Tasks involved are human anthropometry study, requirement gathering, quick concepts
generation (Line diagram), detail concept generation, detail design, proto support and
product environmental testing support.

This product has been designed with different manufacturing process such as injection
molding, over molding, insert molding, sheet metal, die-casting and metal injection

Project 2: Design of a Bi-Ocular thermal imaging camera

This project involved designing of a Bi-ocular thermal imaging camera which has more
range than the handheld thermal imaging camera (1000m without lens extender and
1800m with lens extender).This product also should meet the IP-67 standard and meet all
the environmental requirements as per the MIL standard.

Tasks involved are from concept to manufacturing designing and testing support

Project 3: Design of a camera charger which is compatible both for handheld mono
and bi-ocular thermal imaging cameras
This project involves the development of the battery charger for both the cameras
developed above. The criticality involved is to meet the tooling challenge of the plastic
part (it should mount on the wall and cameras should mount at 45 Degree to the wall).It
also involved the light pipe design.
