Prof. Dr. M. Prabhakar
Centre for Smart Grid Technologies,
School of Electrical Engineering (SELECT),
Vellore Institute of Technology, Chennai, India
Introduction: His research experience is focused on developing, testing and implementing high gain DC-DC converters for integrating renewable energy sources to a DC bus. He started his research in the year 2012 and he have been actively involved in synthesizing more than 20 high gain DC-DC converters. The voltage gain of the developed converters range from 15 to 25. The test results obtained from the prototype versions of the power electronic converters have been published in reputed journals.
From May 2022, he is associated with Centre for Smart Grid Technologies (CSGT), Vellore Institute of Technology, Chennai, India as a Professor. In recent times, he is involved in synthesizing high gain multi-input converters. Presently, he is working on implementing machine learning-based algorithms to integrate the multiple photovoltaic (PV) sources to a common DC bus through asymmetric multi-input converters. This particular work is being funded by his university, Vellore Institute of Technology, Chennai, India under “Seed Fund Grant” proposal.
