Sayonsom Chanda

Power Systems Research Engineer

Research Areas:


Sayonsom Chanda is a research engineer at Idaho National Laboratory in the Energy Storage and Transportation Systems department. He graduated from Washington State University in 2015 with a master’s degree in electrical engineering, after completing his bachelor’s degree at National Institute of Technology in Durgapur, India. He was a former intern at INL, and also interned with Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories before joining INL. Currently, he is an engineer-in-training with the state of Idaho. In April 2014 he was a member of the team that won the grand prize in the Hydrogen Design Project sponsored by the Hydrogen Education Foundation, which developed a fuel-cell based 5 kilowatt microgrid power system for a hydrogen drop-in fuel station for futuristic hydrogen cars. The 11-student team, led by Dr. Jacob Leachman, won a cash scholarship of $5,000 and an invitation to participate in Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo 2014 at Long Beach, Calif.
