Rana is a Marie Curie research fellow and a doctoral researcher at the University of Birmingham. The project she is working on is Aulous4Future, with the aim of improvement in wind energy convertors.
Rana has more than six years’ experience in research and engineering in power industry.
Her current area of research is fault detection in semi conductive components (IGBTs and MOSFETs) used in power electronic converters.
In 2013, she graduated with an MSc in embedded systems and power electronics in design of a novel switch reluctance driver in order to reduce torque ripple reduction. She also designs an efficient switch reluctance motor through finite element software (MagNet Infolytica) modelling.
Her PhD work is based on a novel condition monitoring technique for wind turbine electrical drive train systems.
