Contribution of TK Sarkar to development of Industrial Electronics Applications

TK Sarkar retired as Scientist -G and Group Head , Industrial Application division of DOE/ DIT/DEITY after an illustrious career. Unfortunately his contributions like most of the good work done by Department of Electronics and Information Technology in engineering sector is poorly documented. I had long association with him and banked on his technological insights in supporting R&D projects of industry in electronics. And in all most all cases, I found he funded relevant lab level work in one of IITs or CSIR/ CDAC. In a way the pre-commercial projects funded by DSIR were a continuation of Research project funded by DOE.

His most significant contribution is establishment of National Center of execellence in Power Electronics- NaMPET. Hope to write more about the R&D projects supported by TK Sarkar in future.
