Work Experiences

Advanced PLC Programming and SCADA at Indo-Danish Tool Room, Jamshedpur, Jharkhand
Jun 2011

The Vocational training involved programming in Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) with SCADA in which various applications were simulated using different series and parallel combinations of NO and NC switches.

Heavy Maintenance (Electrical) at Rourkela Steel Plant
May 2012 to Jun 2012

The internship involved the study of various processes involved in different steel applications in steel production as a part of the heavy maintenance (Electrical) team.

Systems Engineer at Tata Consultancy Services Bengaluru
10th Dec 2013 to 26th Feb 2016

• First project: Oracle Retail Price Management (ORPM) which is a subset of Oracle Retail Management System (ORMS), was used to optimize the operations of SPAR Hypermarkets. The primary role was to develop customized packages in Oracle SQL as per the client’s new policies and run them as automated batches. The prices of all the products obtained from the batches were reflected the next day on the labels of each product within a particular hypermarket. • Second project: Part of a Backend team of Tata Communications Ltd. client in which the primary role was to optimize the database in a client’s tool called Composite using MySQL. An agile framework was used where user stories were assigned every two weeks for a particular addition or modification in the client’s portal. For a particular user story, optimized queries in the Composite tool were developed by the frontend team to fetch and visualize the dataset in the client’s portal.

Junior Research Fellow at Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar
9th Nov 2020 to 13th Dec 2021

• Developed simulation and control of a DC microgrid consisting of a PV source, a fuel-cell source and a battery using MATLAB in the project named UI: ASSIST – US India collaborative for smart distribution system with storage. • Testing of various operating scenarios on a developed laboratory prototype of a 50kW hybrid AC/DC microgrid consisting of a synchronous generator, a DFIG-based wind farm, a PMSG-based wind farm, a solar emulator, a fuel-cell emulator and a battery storage and management system along with bidirectional AC/DC converter.

Image Compression using Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) in C in ITER, SOA University, Bhubaneswar, Odisha
Jul 2012 to May 2013

• DCT technique was applied to compress a black-and-white image using C language. • An image is composed of a finite number of elements, called pixels, each of which has a particular location and value, which can be interpreted in the form of a matrix. • Using DCT, the information is transformed and stored at lower frequency coordinates. Hence, we require less power to transmit the information, and there is much less chance of noise interference.

Enhancement of Voltage Stability using Model Predictive Control in NIT Rourkela, Rourkela, Odisha
May 2019 to May 2020

• Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithm is used to predict the gradual and persistent change in voltage of a particular bus in a power system network and find an optimal corrective action using a suitable input. • The main motive was to find an automated system that would give the exact quantity by which the input has to be applied to bring the voltage within a safe zone, say 0.95 p.u. to 1.05 p.u. • This automated system is expected to help the operators significantly as it will reduce their burden and operational time.
