About Sambu

Highly motivated, enthusiastic and focused individual, qualified in Power Systems and Renewable Energies Engineering, with vast experience and a comprehensive knowledge of desired skills and specifications, such as fundamental concepts of energy and power involving physics and mathematics, as well as electricity generation, distribution, and storage. Energetic and inquisitive enjoys solving problems by analysis and adapting to find a good solution, whilst seeking to find novelty. Actually, working on a Research project for the Analysis and Design of Integrated Building and Distribution Electricity Networks, with the collaboration of a research company. The project falls under the portfolio of the interactions between buildings and electrical networks. Power generation from new and renewable energy sources, building thermal storage systems and solar energy systems are also considered. As part of the research project, I am directly carrying out research to evaluate and develop a tool that will be able to describe the built environment, energy consumption and supply, and electricity networks.
