    Personal profile

    Biography

    I am the course director for Building Services degree Apprenticeships and also teaches modules in Building services systems, with particular focus on Building Services Electrics and intelligent built Environment.

    I started my PhD as a partial scholar following an MSc-distinction in Electrical Engineering Systems at Staffordshire University, UK. This subsequently led to securing a grant of £86,000 from General Electric Grid solutions in Stafford – UK, to develop new protection algorithms for application to DC grids, where I was the main proof-of-concept investigator. Generally, the lack of fast fault detection algorithms has been identified by researchers and systems developers as a major issue in the realisation of DC grids.

    The outcome of my PhD research led to the development of a novel time domain protection algorithm for application to DC grids. This principle, which is based on travelling waves, has been proven and validated; and it is anticipated that it will be implemented in modern micro-processor based relays in the near future. It is envisaged that the novel protection algorithm will also be applicable to low voltage DC distribution (LVDC) systems.

    PhD Project

    I am open to discussions and collaborations in the underlisted and promising research areas in the built environment.  I am also happy to accept PhD and MSc /MRes students.
