With millions of homes and businesses relying on the National Grid, engineering research in high voltage electrical energy systems is very important in protecting from surges, preventing blackouts, and ensuring safety and efficiency from the grid across. My research interest lies in detecting incipient faults for condition monitoring of electrical power equipment as well as at the transmission system to ensure continuous supply from generation to the end-user. Besides that, I also doing research to find and do the improvement of new insulation material developed for high voltage equipment applications. My interest in this area had gone deeper and the research is continued through my research students and grants that I managed to obtain. Below is the list of the grants that I manage to obtain as Principle Investigator:i. International grant: 1, ii. National grants: 4 iii. Contract Research with industry: 2 iii. Universiti internal Grant: 6. Now, besides the power transformer as the major equipment being studied, my research had extended to other equipment in power system industries. The other equipment that I have started to study are high voltage cables, pole insulators, and switchgear. As the insulating system is the main approach that I normally used in my research, this had open the door for me to explore new research topics that are in the area of insulating material for high voltage application development, testing, and improvement. Besides research in high voltage engineering, my interest in doing research in the area of energy efficiency on building and energy sources management is gained. This interest grew when I started teaching energy resources planning and efficiency subjects for the master’s degree course. As for now, most of my master by course students are doing energy efficiency and green index building research for their dissertation. The summary of my publication from 2011 until today is as below: i. Research books: 2 books ii. Indexed journal as the main/corresponding author: 36 papers iii. Non-indexed journal as the main/corresponding author: 4 papers iv. Indexed journal as a co-author: 30 papers v. Non indexed journal as a co-author: 8 papers vi. Chapter in research book (tier 1): 12 chapters vii. Conference proceeding: 74 papers.
