Brief Description

Organization

2004 – Till date

Managing Engineering group, of strength of 20 internal and 10 external employees (consist of PM’s, Technical Manager, Sr. Engineers, and Engineer). The group is mainly involved in following:

  1. PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) Solution across the world for Low Voltage Switchgear (LVS) Medium Voltage Switchgear (MVS), Power Transformer and Substation Engineering Product of ABB globally.
  2. Development of Substation Engineering Calculation Packages (SECP), which include Short-Circuit, Sag-Tension etc. for substation, globalization of the use of the application using centralized ABB IT infrastructure & process.
  3. Development of Centralized Machine Inspection Global System (MiGs) & Interface Data Warehousing solution, used by BU Machine Services across ABB.
  4. Development and testing of ABB Network Management System (PNSM – SCADA, MicroSCADA system) which include heterogeneous system (Linux, HP-Unix, Windows). Automation of backup and restore of Network Manager Databases (both online & offline) through secure network (including DMZ) across firewall.
  5. Development of Design & Validation Tool for power & distribution transformer, HV Circuit Breaker, Lightning Arrester, Low & Medium voltage switchgear.
  6. Work with the design, optimization and testing of HV product across ABB, which include GIS, AIS equipment, HV Current Transformer, CVT / Optical CT, modular switchgear, system simulation for fault simulation for HV Transmission & Distribution network. Helping the BU’s for SA (Substation Automation) & DA (Distribution Automation) analysis and optimization
  7. The setup of High Voltage and High Current testing setup, helping other BU’s across the world to setup effective product testing measuring setup for HV Product
  8. Global Engineering solution for Switchgear product across ABB, support in design optimization.
  9. Team review different patent on switchgear product, and help ABB to protect different areas of product (8 patent filed in 2008 from this team)

The responsibilities include technical evaluation of solution, group strategy development considering the vision & mission of group & organization, workforce planning, career planning, succession planning, yearly performance evaluation and ACR.

ABB Global Industries & Services Limited (Corporate Research - INCRC), Bangalore

1999 – 2004

Engineering Analysis and HV testing to support different New Product Initiation (NPI) and product optimization. The scope was also to setup a High Voltage testing setup (using Hipotrinics AC & impulse test setup). State of the art tools use (like ANSYS, Saber, MatLab, Magnet) for engineering analysis (numerical) and test setup (like Power frequency HV test, Partial Discharge, Oil Breakdown tester, Insulation Loss analyzer etc). The responsibility includes technical evaluation, helping the NPI initiative, development of combine insulation for HV application, coming up with new quenching technique for electrical arc, fault simulation, Six Sigma initiative & HV testing for critical component.

GE Indsys (Hyderabad) & Corporate Research (JFWTC, Bangalore)

1996 - 1999

Worked as the Technical Lead on the design and tool developments for in-house use. Some of the tool developed are to optimize the design & testing process, like automation of CAD – with CNC system, auto wiring diagram, PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) tool for MCC & PCC

Siemens Limited, Calcutta, India

1994 - 1996

Worked as Sr. Engineer for the development on solution framework for HV Circuit Breaker, based on the finite element analysis. This helps the business on optimization of several components of HV products manufactured by ABB. Some of the major works are Design of 145kV SF6 high voltage circuit breaker, Failure analysis of high voltage circuit breaker, Optimization of arc chamber of circuit breaker with the help of Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Development of high impulse current test set-up for Lightning arrester testing.
