Dr. Mohammed is a professor of electrical engineering and director of the Energy Systems Research Laboratory at Florida International University in Miami. He received his master's and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering from Virginia Tech in 1981 and 1983, respectively. He has performed research on various topics in power and energy systems in addition to computational electromagnetics and design optimization in electric machines, electric drive systems, and other low frequency environments. He has performed multiple research projects for several federal agencies since the 1990s dealing with power system analysis, physics-based modeling, electromagnetic signature, sensor-less control, electric machinery, high frequency switching, electromagnetic Interference, and ship power systems modeling and analysis. Prof. Mohammed currently has active research programs in a number of these areas funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, and several industries. A world renowned leader in electrical energy systems and optimization techniques, he has published more than 350 articles in refereed journals and other IEEE refereed international conference records, with nearly 130 journal articles. Prof. Mohammed is an elected Fellow of IEEE and of the Applied Computational Electromagnetic Society. He is the recipient of the prestigious IEEE Power and Energy Society Cyril Veinott Electromechanical Energy Conversion Award and the 2012 Outstanding Research Award from Florida International University. He is the author of book chapters, including Chapter 8 on direct current machines in the Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers, including in the 16th Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2007 and 2012. He is also the author of a book chapter entitled "Optimal Design of Magnetostatic Devices: the Genetic Algorithm Approach and System Optimization Strategies," in the book entitled Electromagnetic Optimization by Genetic Algorithms, John Wiley & Sons, 1999.
Prof. Mohammed has lectured extensively worldwide in invited and plenary talks at major research and industrial organizations and at international conferences. He serves as editor of several IEEE transactions, including the IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion, the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, and COMPEL. Prof. Mohammed has served as the International Steering Committee Chair for the IEEE International Electric Machines and Drives Conference (IEMDC) and the IEEE Conference on Electromagnetic Field Computation (CEFC). He has been general chair of six major international conferences on power and energy, computational electromagnetics, and intelligent systems over the past 20 years. He also serves as chairman, officer, or active member on several IEEE Power and Energy Society committees, subcommittees, and technical working groups. He a past member of the IEEE Power and Energy Society Governing Board and of the Florida Power & Light Company's Consumer Advisory Board.
Brandy Louie Serrano received his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering in 2013 from Florida International University, where he currently is working as an undergraduate research assistant at the Energy Systems Research Laboratory. He has assisted in various power systems research topics focusing on hybrid electric-vehicle integration in the utility grid, battery management systems, and control of power flow in hybrid AC-DC systems.
