Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has been actively involved in research for the last 12 years, which is documented by a constant stream of research papers published in international journals and proceedings of international conferences. His work in the area of transients and modelling of synchronous machines was mainly in torsional oscillations and saturation modelling. The emphasis of his latest research in this area is on the machine steady–state and transient behaviour in the presence of uncertainties associated with model parameters and operating conditions.

In the area of power system dynamics, Expert's research was initially in the explanation of dynamic load-system interaction and assessing the influence of dynamic loads on system stability. He has developed a new technique for ranking loads in the power system based on their influence on system stability. He has pioneered this research and his papers are cited in journal and conference articles and Ph.D. and M.Sc. dissertations by other researchers working in this area. The latest work in the area of power system dynamics concentrates on the robust stability of uncertain de-regulated systems with embedded generators and coordinated tuning of power system controllers. This is particularly important for de-regulated power systems with increased penetration of embedded generation where competition increases the uncertainty that network operators must face and encourages them to operate with smaller security margins. He is also working on the application of the latest control theory methods for robust control in power system stability studies. A research project proposal in this area is in final stage of development.

Power quality has become one of the most important fields of research in recent years. Expert's involvement in this area began in mid-1996 at the University of Tasmania. There, he was the driving force behind the establishment of one of the first Centres for Power Quality research in Australia. His research there was strongly supported by the Tasmanian Electric Power Utility, major Tasmanian industries and the Australian Research Council. In less than two years there, he managed to secure research funding of about $580,000. At UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology), he is currently working in the area of voltage sag assessment and characterising in distribution systems and in harmonic load modelling. Two large project proposals have been recently submitted to the EPSRC and EU for the work in this area. Expert is also involved as a British Specialist in power quality in a three-year collaborative project with NgeeAnn Polytechnic from Singapore funded by the British Council.

Career Accomplishments:

Expert is a senior member of IEEE (the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers ) and a member of IEE (the Institution of Electrical Engineers). He is a former member of the Australian Panel of CIGRE Study Committee 38.


He is a Chartered Engineer.

Professional Appointments

Expert is a reviewer for the following international journals: IEEE Transactions on Power Systems; IEEE Proceedings; IEEE Transactions on Control System Technology; IEE Proceedings on Generation Transmission and Distribution; IEE Proceedings on Control Theory and Applications; the International Journal on Electrical Energy and Power Systems; the International Journal on Computers and Electrical Engineering; Transactions of the Institute of Measurement and Control; and the International Journal on Electrical Engineering Education.

He is also a reviewer for the Power System Computation Conference. He has acted as a publisher's reader (on 6 books) for John Wiley and Sons, Inc., Prentice Hall and McGraw Hill. At the University of Tasmania, Expert was co-founder of “Power Quality Letters” published by the University of Tasmania and he was an Associate Editor between Oct. 1996 and Jan. 1998. He was the International Conference Session Chairman for the IEEE International Conference on Harmonics and Quality of Power, Orlando, Fla., USA, in October 2000.


In 1987, he received a faculty award for the best graduate in the area of electrical power engineering at the University of Belgrade (Weighted Average Mark 95.97%). He was the recipient of the special “Scholarship for Young Scientist” from the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SANU) for postgraduate (M.Sc.) studies. He was the recipient of the University of Newcastle Postgraduate Research Scholarship for Ph.D. studies in 1993. He was the recipient of the Overseas Postgraduate Research Award for Ph.D. studies from the Australian Government in 1993. And in 2001, he was the recipient of a travel grant from the Royal Society.

Publications and Patents Summary

Since joining UMIST in January 1998, Expert has continued to be actively involved in three core areas of research. He has published six journal papers (a further five are currently under review), 16 international conference papers (one invited), and he has given a number of invited presentations and seminars. His current research is supported by the EPSRC, the Royal Society, and major generation, transmission and distribution companies in the UK, including Innogy, PowerGen, Scottish Power, Edison Mission and Data Systems and Solutions (formerly Rolls Royce). His complete list of publications includes 63 entries in total, 14 of which appear in refereed international journals.

International Experience:
Years   Country / Region   Summary
2000 to   Singapore   For NgeeAnn Polytechnic, Expert is a British Specialist engaged in a three-year Programme/Project for the establishment of a power quality training laboratory/centre in the school's electrical engineering department through the British Council.
1995 to   Russia   A collaboration with St. Petersburg State Technical University started in late 1995 for Expert, with Associate Professors Y.M. Makarov and V.A.Maslennikov, and has included Professor S.M. Ustinov since spring 1996. The Royal Society has funded joint research and two visits by Prof. Ustinov to UMIST in 1999 and 2000. This collaboration has resulted so far in one IEEE Transactions paper, one invited conference paper, one conference paper, and three journal papers currently under review.
