Biography

Hamed H Bahmani 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, MEng in electrical engineering in 2007 from IUST in Iran, and PhD degree in electrical engineering from Cardiff University, UK in 2014. His PhD study was funded by Cogent power Ltd and ABB, and concerned development of novel techniques for the assessment of inter-laminar resistance in transformer and reactor cores. Following his PhD he was appointed as a research associate at Cardiff University in the field of grounding systems for HVAC and HVDC systems. He was later appointed as a lecturer in electrical engineering at Ulster University. He had also worked as a consultant engineer in HV substations and distribution networks, with engineering consultant companies.

Research

Hamed’s research began from analytical modelling for linear induction motors, and application in industrial systems. His major interest is now dynamic modelling of magnetic materials under complex magnetisation conditions, condition monitoring of magnetic cores of power transformers and rotating machines, applications of magnetic materials for renewable energy systems, and optimised design of linear motors for industrial applications.

He also has interests in high frequency and transient response analysis of grounding systems, dynamic modelling of grounding systems of HVAC and HVDC systems under transient fault conditions, enhanced safety voltage limits around HVDC ground electrodes, and physiological effects of direct currents on human body.

Research Interests

  • Analytical modelling of magnetic materials under complex magnetisation conditions.
  • Design and analysis of Linear Motors for industrial applications
  • Fault detection in magnetic cores of power transformers and modern electrical machines.
  • Grounding systems for HVAC and HVDC networks
