Essam S Hamdi BSc, MSc, PhD, CEng MIET
Essam received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Alexandria University, Egypt, and the Ph.D. from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), Manchester, U.K., in 1981.
In 1982, he joined The Electrical Research Association (ERA Technology), Leatherhead, Surrey, U.K. as a senior engineer; becoming a principal engineer and head of department in 1985. At ERA, Dr Hamdi led a number of R&D projects funded by industry and U.K. Government Department of Energy. In 1987, he joined the Faculty of Engineering and Environmental Design, Cardiff University, Cardiff, Wales, U.K., becoming Dean of Faculty in 1994.
In 2001, Essam was appointed to the Chair of Electrical Machines at Chalmers University of Technology (CTH), Gothenburg, Sweden. At Chalmers, Professor Hamdi’s research focused on drive systems for Hybrid Electrical Vehicles, wind generators and high-performance electric drives for More Electric Aircrafts (MEA). In Sweden, Essam acted as a consultant and provided training courses to a number of companies including Volvo Cars, SKF and SAB Avionics.
In 2009, Essam took up a new challenge in the Middle East when he joined Al Ain Colleges (Higher Colleges of Technology, HCT), UAE, as Chair of Engineering where he expanded the colleges’ offerings to include Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Technology Programmes. In 2014, Essam Joined Teesside University where he is contributing to teaching and research in Electrical Power Engineering.
Essam is the author of two books dealing with Design of Electrical Machines (Wiley, 1994) and Electrical Drive systems (ETI Sweden, 2003) and he has supervised 15 Doctorate students and over 50 MSc projects.
Research interests: Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Variable Speed Drive Systems.
Number of Ph.D. theses supervised: 15 (all successfully completed).
Number of publications: 78, including sole authorship of two books.
