I obtained my PhD degree in Power Electronics from Sussex University in 2004 then joined Swansea University as a research officer.  I’m currently a Lecturer in Power Electronics in the College of Engineering at Swansea University.

My current research interests are in: Power electronics converters and controls for solar and wave power conversion systems, Electrical machine control and power systems. I have also published over 50 scientific papers in various international journals and conferences in the area of power electronics and power system.

Teaching

  • EG-345 Power Electronics

    The module introduces circuit topologies and switching techniques for power electronics systems.

  • EGLM02 Advanced Power Electronics and Drives

    This module introduces advanced circuit topologies of power electronics systems for high power applications; the power quality issues will also be addressed by covering passive and active power filters, front end active circuit topologies and harmonic standards. An introduction to modern variable speed ac and dc drives for industrial applications will also be introduced.

  • EGLM06 Energy and Power Electronics Laboratory

    The module covers main aspects of Engineering Applications for the MSc students in electrical & electronics engineering. It includes preparation, performance and reporting on a structured series of experiments supporting the taught modules at this level and gives the hands-on experience of electrical machine and renewable energy system operation, practice in using IT packages to assist with the laboratory work and report writing.
