Personal profile

Biography

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 and large industrial buildings.
