North China Electric Power University, Beijing, China
His current research interests include Operation and Control of Multi-Infeed HVDC, Hybrid LCC-VSC HVDC, and AC/DC power flow.
Dr. Engr. Bilawal Rehman is serving as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering Technology at National Skills University, Islamabad, Pakistan. He received his B.S. (Gold Medalist) and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Management & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan. Dr. Rehman pursued his Ph.D. in Power System & Automation from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, North China Electric Power University, Beijing, China.
He has over four years of teaching and practical experience in various public and private organizations in Pakistan. Besides teaching, he established several engineering laboratories, prepared laboratory manuals, and organized accreditation visits. He also served as a team member of the group responsible for building an HVDC model in PSS/E for the CPEC project named Matiari to Lahore ±660kV HVDC Transmission Line.
He is recipient of fully-funded Chinese Government Scholarship for Ph.D. studies as well as for university scholarships for BS & MS studies in Pakistan. He was recognized with an outstanding research award for the year 2019 from North China Electric Power University, Beijing, China. Besides this two Rector’s Merit Awards, Four Dean’s Merit Awards, and Two Gold medals during his graduate studies are also to his credit.
Dr. Rehman worked on the operation and control of Multi-Infeed High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) configurations during his Ph.D. studies. He investigated the impact of Multi-Infeed Interaction Factor (MIIF) on local & concurrent Commutation Failure (CF) and developed a formula to measure the influence of MIIF on local CF. Based on his scientific studies he proposed a solution for discrete converter transformer tap position in AC/DC power flow studies.
