Lecturer in Electrical Power Engineering

  • Lecturer in Electrical Power Engineering - School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering (SECTE), Faculty of Engineering & Information Sciences, University of Wollongong, NSW 2522, Australia

Overview


Dr. Rabiul Islam received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Sydney, Australia, in 2014, in electrical engineering. From September 2013 to September 2014 he was a Research Associate with the ARC discovery project entitled “An Optimal Electrical Drive System for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles” at UTS. He was appointed as an Associate Professor at Rajshahi University of Engineering & Technology (RUET) from July 2015 to March 2017 and was promoted to a Professor in April 2017. Since January 2018 he has been working with the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering, University of Wollongong, Australia.
He has authored and co-authored more than 250 technical papers including more than 75 IEEE Transactions/IEEE Journal papers, 5 books (Springer and CRC Press), and 14 book chapters (Springer, IET, CRC Press-Taylor & Francis).
His two papers have been awarded by the IEEE Power & Energy Society editorial board as the "Best Paper" published in the IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion in the period 2019-2020 (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?tp=&arnumber=9269305). He also received more than 15 Best Paper Awards from different international conferences.
Dr. Rabiul is a Senior Member of the IEEE (USA). His research interests are in the fields of renewable energy technologies, power electronic converters, power quality and reliability, electrical machines, and smart power systems.
He is serving as an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion and the IEEE Power Engineering Letters, and Associate Editor for IEEE Access. He is a book Series Editor for Taylor & Francis Books with the Book Series entitled "Advances in Power Electronic Converters". He is serving as a Lead Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Industrial Electronics for the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society and IEEE Power & Energy Society Joint Special Section on "Advances in High-frequency Isolated Power Converters".
He has received several research grants from Governments and Industries including in total $5.48 million from Australian Government through Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project (DP) entitled “A Next Generation Smart Solid-State Transformer for Power Grid Applications” and ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre Project entitled “ARC Training Centre in Energy Technologies for Future Grids.
