Dr. Kaibalya Prasad Panda has received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Institute of Technology Meghalaya, Shillong, Meghalaya, in 2021. From 2013 to 2017, he was with the C. V. Raman College of Engineering, Bhubaneswar, India, as an Assistant Professor, and from 2021 to 2022, he was with NIT Andhra Pradesh, Tadepalligudem, India, as an Adhoc Faculty. He is currently working as an Assistant Professor with the Department of EE, School of Technology, Pandit Deendayal Energy University (PDEU), Gandhinagar, India. His research interests include efficient multilevel inverters design, high-gain converters, photovoltaic systems, and power quality.

Dr. Panda was also a visiting scholar with the University of Warwick, U.K., funded under the Joint U.K.- India Clean Energy program during Jan-March 2019. He was a recipient of several travel grants and Institute Best Research Award for outstanding research during his Ph.D. He has authored/co-authored over 10 IEEE Transactions and reputed journals and also filed two patents. Recently, he has been listed in World’s Top 2% of Researchers under the Energy category as per the Stanford University list. He is also a regular reviewer for several IEEE, IET and Willey Journals.

TOPIC: Impact of Transformer-less Inverters in Grid-Connected PV Applications:


Emergence of green energy utilization in the energy sector has put forward rigorous development of new power electronic converters in the recent years. Green energy sources such as photovoltaic (PV), wind, etc. are more popular for impactful energy generation and utilization. In such systems, dc-dc converter and dc-ac converters are the heart of the systems. The two stage system generally includes and dc-dc stage and recently developed single-stage systems avoids dc-dc stage. A single-stage system also avoids a high-cost transformer and such transformer-less single-stage PV systems thus need an inherent boosting ability. Inherent boosting ability can be achieved by designing boost type inverters. This talk will focus on transformer-less inverters such as common-ground and neutral-point-clamping structure and their impact in Grid-Connected PV Applications.
