Nuclear Power Engineering
Madhumohan has significant credentials in the nuclear power industry in Canada as a Qualified Design Engineer. He had been a Responsible Design Engineer for Class I & II power systems consisting of the power conversion equipment, DC switchgear and the battery banks, along with the safety-related critical loads to ensure uninterruptible power to safely maintain the nuclear reactor under all normal, abnormal and accident conditions. His contributions include battery sizing calculations; short-circuit analysis, technical specifications, testing and maintenance procedures and installation of the replacement batteries as per the IEEE Standards and the Nuclear Safety Codes. He was instrumental in guarantying the continued safe operation of the four-unit Bruce-B CANDU nuclear power plant in Ontario, Canada, by effective engineering analysis, calculations and judgment applied to the aged nuclear-grade, last-line-of-defense battery system per the CNSC regulations.
Taking several breaks to pursue his music and musicological interests, he continued in the nuclear power industry as an experienced electrical engineering consultant with contributions to all the three nuclear power stations in Ontario, Canada.
Before joining the nuclear power industry, he worked in several engineering firms in different areas in Canada. He also held both Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and Novell’s Certified Network Engineer (CNE) certifications.
Licensed as a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.), affiliated with the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario (APEO), Canada.
Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Guyana. This one-year project was funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and organized by the World University Services of Canada (WUSC).
