Ambrish Chandra FIEEE is a full professor of Electrical Engineering at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Montréal since 1999. His educational background includes B.E. degree from the University of Roorkee (presently IITR), India, M. Tech. from IIT Delhi, and Ph.D. from University of Calgary, in 1977, 1980, and 1987, respectively. Before joining as an Associate Professor at ÉTS in 1994, he worked as a faculty at IITR. From 2012-15, he was director of multidisciplinary graduate program on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency at ÉTS.
The primary focus of his work is related to the advancement of new theory & control algorithms for power electronic converters for power quality improvement in distribution systems & integration of renewable energy sources. He has published more than 300 research articles in these areas. The key differentiator of his work is in its simplicity and practicality of new solutions and has had significant impact, which is now extensively used in the industry. He was instrumental in writing six review articles on power quality, which have become de-facto standards world-wide with total Google citations more than 11400, h-index 45, i10-index 130. He is coauthor of John Wiley book ‘Power Quality – Problems and Mitigation Techniques’.
Dr. Chandra is Fellow of many organizations, such as, FIEEE, FCAE, FEIC, FIET (UK), FIE (India), FIETE (India) and registered as a Professional Engineer in Quebec. He is IEEE PES/IAS Distinguished Lecturer and has given lectures in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, and Xi’an, University of Toronto, many cities in India, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt and keynote speeches in many international conferences. He is Chair of subcommittee on ‘Power Quality’ of IEEE IES. He is the Guest Editor for special issue of journal Energies on ‘Power Quality in Microgrids Based on Distributed Generators’. He received IEEE Montréal Best Technical Chapter Award – for PES in 2012, 2014, 2017, ‘Outstanding Contribution’ as Chair of IEEE Montréal Section’s PES Chapter, 2010. He is the recipient of highest Canadian award on electrical power engineering 2018 ‘IEEE Canada P. Ziogas Electric Power Award’.
