Dr. Beig has set up the Power Electronics and Sustainable Energy (PEASE) Research Lab at KU. He is leading the research team “Transportation Electrification” under Advanced Power and Energy Center (APEC). The above research laboratory has all the modern state of the art facilities for research in the broad area of power electroncis and drives. Researchers in this laboraotry have opportunities to develop advance control algorithms for power electronic systems and validate on experimental prototypes. In addition to analytical and simualtion studies, the emphasis is on designing prototype , fabrication and validation .
Dr. Beig is serving as Associate Editor for the IEEE Trasactions on Industrial Electroncis and IEEE Transaction on Transportation Electrification. Previously he has served as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transaction on Industrial Application. Dr. Beig has supervised several PhD and MSc thesis.
Dr. Beig has successfully completed industry-sponsored projects on mitigation of the power quality problems in oil rigs. He has also completed other research projects on active filters for distorted voltage conditions and improved PWM techniques for high power drives. Dr. Beig has excellent industrial experience, especially in the design of inverters, DSP/FPGA based embedded controllers, and development of control algorithms for electric drives. From 1989 to 1992, Dr. Beig was with M/S Kirloskar Electric Company, Ltd, Mysore, India, as a R&D Engineer. Dr. Beig has received the Khalifa University Best in Teaching Award in 2010 and the Khalifa University Research Award in 2013.

The research team (including the PhD students) has uccessfully developed an improved high performance four wheel differential drive for Electric vehicles. Some fo these results are published in IEEE Transaction on Industrial electroncis, Power electronics and Trsportation Electrification. The team has developed a novel ANN based control algorithm for the above drive. Also development of a fault tolerant drive for EV is in progress.
Currently we are looking for PhD students to work on broad area of Trasportation Electrification (advanced control algorithms on EV power train, Fault tolerant operation in EVs, high gain converters for EVs, V2G and G2V energy trasfer , green parking, EVs as disitributed storage source, bidirectional chargers) ) HVDC and Bulk power transfer systems ( Modular mulitlevel converter based systems , fault tolerant operation and advanced control algorithms) Students interested in research in these areas can contact me through email ( firstname.lastname@example.org) and are advised to apply online at KU website
