Neeraj Kanwar is presently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Manipal University Jaipur, India. She has rich and diversified experience of 15 years in various fields including teaching, research, and administration as well. She is currently supervising three Ph.D. and two M.Tech scholars. She is a regular reviewer of research articles for many high impact journals including IET Generation Transmission & Distribution, IET Renewable Power Generation, Electric Power Systems Research, IEEE Access, International Transactions on Electrical Energy Systems, International Journal of Electrical Power and Energy Systems, International Journal of Emerging Electric Power Systems, Electric Power Components, and Systems, etc. She has a strong flair for writing & research and has authored 6 book chapters and published several research articles in international journals/conferences of high repute, including Applied Energy, IET Renewable Power Generation, International Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems, Energy Conversion, and Management, etc. She has developed improved variants of several existing meta-heuristics techniques to efficiently solve complex combinatorial optimization problems of power system considering a more practical environment such as intermittent renewable power generation and stochastic load demand. She proposed a new self-adaptive deterministic approach to handle uncertainty and variability pertaining to load demand and renewable power generation among distribution buses to provide more realistic solutions for long-term DER planning and operation.
Her research interests are renewable energy sources, smart grid, network reconfiguration (NR), distributed generations (DGs), power system operation and planning, bio-inspired and swarm-based optimization techniques, application of optimization techniques in the power system.
