Bio

Dr Sasi K Kottayil had his basic and post graduate degrees in Electrical Engineering and doctoral degree on Utility Scale Wind Electricity Generation. He has been in teaching profession since 1984. He served earlier as faculty member at North Eastern regional Institute of Science and Technology, Itanagar (1986 to 2004); and also in Department of Energy at Tezpur University, Assam. He is currently Professor in Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University, Coimbatore. Renewable Energy and Smart Micro Grid are the areas of his interest.

Dr Sasi K Kottayil is a Fellow and Past President of the Society of Energy Engineers and Managers (SEEM), and Editorial Advisor of the SEEM magazine – Energy Manager.
Dr Sasi also serves as a consultant for Renewable Energy development for the past 10 years. He has been the Project Director of Ahalia Alternate Energy Pvt Ltd, during 2015-16 when they developed 8.4 MW wind farm. He has been the Consultant to the Swedish Consortium that develops E4T Microgrid Concept, a RE project for Andaman & Nicobar Islands during 2015-16. He served as a member of the Technical Committee of ANERT, Govt of Kerala, for development of windfarms in Kerala, from 2004 to 2015.

He served during 2008-2012 as a member in R&D subgroups of Centre for Wind Energy Technology (C-WET), Govt of India. He was awarded Kerala State Energy Conservation Commendation Certificate in 2009 in the category of Research and Innovation. Dr Sasi was awarded a Fellowship by European Union to attend Salzburg Seminar on Global Energy Fulcrum: Asian Development and International Response held at Salzburg, Austria in Nov-Dec 2008. He also visited Uppsala University, Sweden as a visiting faculty in June 2008, and Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm in 2012. He was selected for the Prometeo Project of Equador government in 2013. Elsevier International Journal of Energy recognized Dr Sasi as their Outstanding Reviewer in 2014. He is a member in the Advisory Committee of Centre of Excellence in Alternate Energy Research, Government College of Technology, Coimbatore during 2014-17. Dr Sasi is one amongst the authors who won The IET Premium Awards 2016 for their paper in IET international journal of Power Electronics. He served as Guest Editor of Procedia Technology for its Special Issue on Smart grid Technologies, (Vol 21, 2015).

Dr Sasi was the Principal Investigator of the DST-VINNOVA funded Indo-Swedish research project, Energy Management on Smart Grid using Embedded Systems (2011-14). He developed and conducted two PG Diploma programmes on Wind Energy under a MoU with C-WET and Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association (2011-2013). He has developed a renewable Energy laboratory at Amrita University that has advanced research facilities which include a Smart Micro Grid Simulator.
