Personal profile

Personal Statement

With a keen interest in power systems stability, have undertaken a thrilling task to pursue a PhD in this area. There are so many challenges (opportunities) currently assailing the modern age power system; from generation, transmission, distribution up to the consumer, thereby threatening unperturbed stability. I am passionate about using unconventional modelling/assessment approaches, to analyse and solve these unprecedented issues of the modern age power system; precisely, by employing Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning. Moreover, these generated methods are transferable to applications outside this research area. 

Research Interests

Research interests include;

  1. Artificial Intelligence
  2. Power Systems Stability
  3. Converter Interfaced Generation
  4. Power Electronics
  5. Renewable Energy Technologies
  6. Low/Zero Inertia Technology Grid Integration
  7. Data Analytics and Statistics
  8. Modelling and Simulations

Academic / Professional qualifications

A solid foundation from a Bachelor's Degree in Renewable Energy Technologies (First Class) from Mzuzu University, Malawi (2016), have completed a Master's degree in Electronic & Electrical Engineering (With Distinction) at the University of Strathclyde, UK (2019). The research project, supervised by Dr Panagiotis Papadopoulos, investigated the impact of integrating the Malawi Government's planned Converter Interfaced Generation (CIG) technologies into the national grid on transient stability, using realistic models.
