M. Syed Jamil Asghar was born in Patna, India. He obtained B.Sc. Engg. (Electrical), M.Sc. Engg. (Power Systems), and Ph.D. (Power Electronics) degrees from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India. He had joined the Department of Electrical Engineering of the same University in 1983 as a Lecturer/ Assistant Professor. He is a Professor in the same Department since 1999. He has established the Centre of Renewable Energy in the Department of Electrical Engineering, funded by the Government of India. He is the Coordinator of DRS program under Special Assistance Program (SAP) of University Grants Commission (UGC), Government of India. The scheme was granted for 5 years with an amount of Rs 43.4 Lac. The scheme is continued with a grant of 85 Lac. for the next five years and the focus of the research project is a renewable energy-based smart grid.
He has written a textbook, Power Electronics (Prentice-Hall of India/ PHI Learning) and is a Chapter author (Gate Drive Circuits, Chapter#18) of Power Electronics Handbook (Academic/Elsevier, California, USA, under a joint program of the University of West Florida and the University of Florida, USA). He has successfully completed many Government-funded research projects, guided many research thesis (10) and M. Tech. Dissertations (30).
He has several patents to his credit related to renewable energy (total 25 patents). It includes a discontinuous phase-controlled switching system, analog MPPT solar PV systems, Grid-tied high power thyristor-based solar PV systems, novel flexible Asynchronous Ac Link (FASAL) for grid failure mitigation etc.
He has published more than 100 papers in referred journals and conference-proceedings including several single-authored papers in IEEE Transactions (USA). His research and teaching interests include Power Electronics, Renewable Energy Systems and Electrical Machines.
He is a Fellow of IETE (India) and a member of IEEE (USA) since 1994.
