Background and activities

 
Profile:
Dr. Mohammad Amin is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electric Power Engineering at NTNU. He received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology, Chittagong, Bangladesh, the M.Sc. degree in electric power engineering from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, and the Ph.D. in Engineering Cybernetics from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway in 2008, 2011 and 2017, respectively. The title of his PhD thesis is Small-signal Stability Characterization of Interaction Phenomena between HVDC System and Wind Farms.
 
Previously, he was a Senior Research Associate in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago from 2017 to 2019.  He was with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) in International Islamic University Chittagong (IIUC), Bangladesh from 2008 to 2013. Dr Amin has research experiences from five countries: USA, Norway, China, Sweden and Bangladesh. 
 

Research Interest:

Dr Amin's research activities mainly focus on power electronics application to power system, distributed generation, renewable energy integration, HVDC transmission, FACTS, microgrid, smart grids, hybrid or fully electric vehicles, robust control theory for power electronics system, process control, and embedded systems. His vision is to develop a top research center that fully explores the beauty of seamless integration of control and power electronics and addresses fundamental problems in various electric power systems, with strong support from funding bodies and industrial companies.

Courses:
