Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Research Associate in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering. My PhD was on Gaussian Process models for SCADA data based Wind turbine performance/condition monitoring from the Wind Energy Systems CDT, hosted at the University of Strathclyde. Previously, I worked in AWESOME project funded by H2020 as Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher. I also worked as Visting Researcher in Wood group and University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM). My further experience includes the role of Assistant Professor in Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore and Jadavpur University where I used to teach and supervise the Undergraduate courses related to Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering.

Mr. Pandit won various prestigious scholarship or prizes like Marie Curie fellowship, Erasmus Mundus Doctorate in Interactive and Cognitive Environments (ICE), GATE Scholarship. He has more than 7 years of Academics & Research experience.

Research Interests

My research focuses on the wind energy area, both onshore and offshore. I have a particular interest in:

- Wind turbine component condition monitoring
- SCADA data analysis
- Wind turbine performance optimizing.
- Wind turbine component failure predictions
- Machine learning for early failure predictions
- O&M cost modelling
- Wind turbine reliability

Teaching Interests

 I have strong interest in teaching the following subjects

  •  Wind Turbine Technology
  •  Electrical Machines
  •  Electrical Instrumentation
  •  Power system
  • Control system
