Overview


Ashish P. Agalgaonkar completed his PhD studies at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) - Bombay, Mumbai, India.  He completed BE and ME from the Walchand College of Engineering, Sangli, India with First Class with Distinction. Also, while in India, he worked for various organisations including KSB Pumps Limited, Pune, India, Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB) (State owned power utility), Kolhapur, India, and NTPC Limited (formerly the National Thermal Power Corporation), Noida, India in various capacities.

Ashish joined at the School of Engineering, University of Tasmania, Australia as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in October 2007 to work on an ARC linkage project titled ‘On-line Monitoring and Modelling of Electrical Loads for Improving Operational Conditions of Power Systems’. He worked on the same ARC project as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian (formerly Integral Energy) Power Quality and Reliability Centre (APQRC), School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering (SECTE), University of Wollongong, Australia from February 2008 to November 2010, before taking up a Lecturer position in the School. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, he was also involved in the ARC discovery project titled "Optimising Control of Hydroelectric Turbines Subject to Basslink Instability" and URC research partnership project titled "Agent-Based Simulation for Catastrophic Disturbances in a Distributed Power Grid System".

Currently, he is an Associate Professor in the SECTE. His main areas of research include Impact of Renewable and Distributed Generation on Electricity Networks, Power System Reliability, System Stability, Electricity Markets, and Smart Grids. He has published more than 100 research papers in renowned international journals and conferences. He has been successful in securing internal and external research grants jointly with other colleagues. Also, he has been actively involved in establishing close links with the reputable universities abroad. He has been involved in the supervision of Higher Degree Research (HDR) students. He is a coordinator of the Graduate Certificate in Electrical Power Engineering and Master of Electrical Power Engineering courses. Also, he is a member of the Australian Power and Energy Research Institute (APERI) at SECTE, University of Wollongong and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
