INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE

Crompton Greaves Ltd (CGL), Bombay, India 1977-1983: (In collaboration with Westinghouse, USA) Designer and Production Superintendent for the manufacture of EHV Transformers, Gapped-Core Shunt Reactors. I was trained in Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Pittsburgh, USA and Westinghouse Canada Ltd., Hamilton Canada, 1981.

Senior Production Executive: 1982-1983. Youngest Indian (28 years) to be sent to Westinghouse USA/Canada for training in the design and manufacture extra high voltage (EHV - 425kV) transformers and EHV gapped core shunt reactors. Revolutionized the entire design and manufacturing process as provided by Westinghouse, Canada from the torroidal gapped core to radially assembled laminations in pie-form packets and using slate as the material to provide gaps in the core structure as opposed to high price fiberglass insulation to precise tolerances on surface finish. This radically improved the manufacturability of the core packets resulting in avoidance of hazardous material like HCL acid needed for removal of burr in the gaps of the torroidal core. Eventually CGL ended reverse transferring technology to Westinghouse in this field.
Senior Design Executive: 1981-1982.
Design Officer: 1979-1981.
Assistant Design Officer: 1978-1979.
Management Trainee: 1977-1978.

Expert and well versed in the design and manufacture of EHV (420 kV), large power, medium power, industrial transformers (up to 400 MVA, 525 kV) and EHV gapped-core shunt reactors (up to 25 MVAR, 525 kV). Awarded ‘Best Young Electrical Engineer’ at CGL and elevated to Senior Executive with Superintendent responsibilities of the Core-coil section of Kanjur Works in 1981.

Assistant Engineer (1975-1977) in the Auto-maintenance section of a major truck manufacturing company: Tata Engineering and Locomotive Company Ltd. (TELCO), India (previously in collaboration with Daimler Benz) now called as TATA Motors, India.

Awarded General Manager's certificate for the best graduate trainee, 1976. Worked with Mr. Sharad Jakatdar, General Manager of TELCO, Pune in the Project Management for diversifying manufacture of 150 tons, semi-forward trucks. Revolutionized the foundry using induction melting methods for the foundry furnaces to manufacture engine block in a clean and sharp environment.
