G.R. (Gautham Ram) Chandra Mouli



Dr.ir. Gautham Ram is an Assistant professor of electric mobility in the DC systems, Energy conversion and Storage group in the Department of Electrical Sustainable Energy at the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. His current research focuses on electric vehicles, EV charging, PV systems, power electronics and demand-side management.

He received his bachelor’s and master’s in Electrical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology Trichy, India in 2011 and the Delft University of Technology in 2013, respectively. He received his PhD from Delft University in 2018 for the development of a solar-powered V2G electric vehicle charger compatible with CHAdeMO, CCS/COMBO and designed smart charging algorithms (with PRE Power Developers, ABB and UT Austin). The project was awarded the ‘Most significant innovation in electric vehicles’ at the IDTechEx Show 2018 in Berlin and the ‘Best Tech idea of 2018’ by KIJK. From 2017 to 2019, he was a postdoctoral research at TU Delft working on research topics related to power converters for EV charging, smart charging of EVs, trolley busses.

He is involved in many projects with industrial and academic partners at national and EU level concerning electric mobility and renewable energy such as PV charging of electric vehicles, OSCD, Trolley 2.0, Flexgrid. He is the coordinator and a lecturer for Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Electric cars on edX.org with ~175,000 learners from 175 countries. He is the Vice-chair of IEEE Industrial Electronic Society Benelux chapter.

    Open Education Award

    De ambassadeursprijzen zijn een erkenning van de bereidheid om te delen en van de inspanningen voor het openstellen van het onderwijs van een online docent aan elke faculteit. “Bij de Extension School houden we van delen. We willen dat de hele wereld profiteert van het onderwijs dat we ontwikkelen met onze uitstekende docenten, en daarom stellen we veel van onze content beschikbaar onder een Creative Commons-licentie, om mensen de vrijheid te geven om deze materialen opnieuw te gebruiken”, aldus Willem van Valkenburg , uitvoerend directeur, tijdens de prijsuitreiking. “Samen met de facultaire coördinatoren wilden we openheid in het onderwijs over de hele wereld vieren door een deel van het fantastische werk dat onze docenten doen om de wereld te onderwijzen in de schijnwerpers te zetten.”
