Personal statement

I received my B.Eng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Universiti Tenaga Nasional in 2011 and my Master of Electrical Engineering from the same university in 2013. I have previously been attached to SONY EMCS from 2011 to 2014. Then I lectured at Tunku Abdul Rahman Universiti College from 2014 to 2018. As I deemed industrial knowledge was significant, I decided to join Tenaga Nasional Berhad Research 2018 to 2021. My area of interest in research is in Conservation of Voltage Reduction (CVR), MV Distribution Planning Network, and Primary Equipment in the Distribution Network.
