After completing City's Power Systems & Energy Management MSc, Mudassir Faridi joined the UK Power Network (UKPN) graduate scheme in September 2013. As part of the UKPN's project to understand what will happen if small-scale renewable generation becomes more mainstream, 20 secondary substations and 10 customers who have solar panels installed in their houses are equipped with monitoring equipment.
Mudassir is tasked with taking ownership of the monitoring software, making sure the data is being captured, analysing the data and creating quarterly reports for customers. This provides information on how much electricity customer's solar panels have generated and how much they have exported into UKPN's network.
