HAMID KHAN has just been awarded a degree of PhD in Electrical Engineering by University Blaise Pascal in France. His topic was “Optimised Space Vector Modulation for Variable Speed Drives”. The research was carried out on Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) strategies for hard switched Voltage Source Inverters (VSI) for variable speed electric drives. This research is aimed at Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV). PWM is at the heart of all variable speed electric drives, It has a huge influence on the overall performance of the system and may also help eventually offer an extra degree of freedom in the possibility to rethink the inverter design including the re-dimensioning of the inverter components.

The objective of the research was to reduce the cost, volume and weight of electric drives through innovative PWM techniques. Results were shown to have a direct influence on these aforementioned parameters.

Hamid Khan did his B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi. He went on to do his Masters in Technology from Polytech Clermont Ferrand, France after which he was appointed as a Research Engineer at the reputed Oil & Energy industry research institute IFP Energies Nouvelles in Paris. Hamid has to his credit many research papers which have been published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
