Hamed Hamzehbahmani


Hamed Hamzehbahmani (SM’ 18) is an Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering in the Department of Engineering at Durham University. He received the BEng in electrical engineering in 2005 from Birjand University in Iran, MSc in electrical engineering in 2007 from IUST in Iran, and PhD degree in electrical engineering from Cardiff University, UK in 2014. Following his PhD he was appointed as a research associate at Cardiff University in the field of grounding systems for HVAC and HVDC networks in corporation with National Grid. He was later appointed as a lecturer in electrical engineering at Ulster University in the UK. He had also worked as a consultant engineer in HV substations and distribution networks, with engineering consultant companies. He has authored more than 30 papers in peer reviewed journals and conferences, and a written textbook on “Electric Circuit Theory”. His research interest is focussed on experimental study and analytical modelling of magnetic properties of electrical steel and magnetic materials under complex magnetising conditions, inter-laminar fault analysis and condition monitoring of magnetic cores, and new magnetic materials for future energy systems (renewable energy systems and variable speed drives). Additionally, he is regularly referee papers for different journals and conferences in the field of magnetics, electrical machines and electrical engineering.

Dr Hamzehbahmani is a senior member of IEEE, a member of the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement as an Associate Editor and an active member of UK magnetic society. He is also a member of North East Centre for Energy Materials (NECEM) and a member of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK (CSC).
