Prof Farhad Namdari

Associate Professor in Electrical Energy Systems


I am an Associate Professor in Electrical Energy Systems at the Department of Engineering in the Faculty of Environment, Science and Economy. I received my BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Power Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) and Tarbiat Modares University in 1994 and 1998, respectively, and my PhD in Electrical Power Engineering from IUST in 2006. 


During my PhD and as a part of it, in 2003-2004 I worked at the Queen’s University, Belfast as an Honorary Research Associate. In 2009 I joined Lorestan University (LU), Iran as an Assistant Professor, and spent the next more than 14 years there progressing to Associate Professor in 2015, Professor in 2021, and some administrative responsibilities like as the Deputy of the University for Research and Technology, and Dean of the Lorestan Science and Technology Park until I started the new role within the University of Exeter in January 2024.


I have been involved in several Industrial projects as a key designer and senior Electrical consultant, especially in Cement and Petrochemical Companies since 1999 before I started working with the University and continued these relations after joining LU and earned several grant projects with Iranian Industries during work with the Lorestan University. 

I have published more than 140 technical Journal and Conference Papers in English/Persian. I am an Editorial Board Member of the “Protection and Control of Modern Power Systems” Journal and a Senior Member of the IEEE.


My research activities and interests lie in, but are not limited to:

- Smart Grids

- Low Carbon Electrical Energy Networks 

- Power System Protection

- Wide Area Monitoring, Protection, and Control

- Power System Transients

- Power System Generation, Operation and Control
