Dr Milutin Jovanovic

Associate Professor

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

Milutin -JovanovicI received the BEng and MEng degrees from the University of Belgrade, Serbia (former Yugoslavia), in 1987 and 1991 respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Newcastle, Australia, in 1997, all in electrical engineering.

The beginning of my long academic career goes back to the period of 1987-1992 when I was a Lecturer in power converters and drives in the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Belgrade. From 1992 until 1997 I was with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Newcastle, Australia, where I successfully completed my PhD studies (full-time internally funded studentship and overseas postgraduate research student award) on sensor-less control of synchronous reluctance machines, to be subsequently employed there as a Senior Research Associate.

I joined the School of Engineering of Liverpool John Moores University in 1998 as a Lecturer in Power Engineering. Since 2000, I’ve been with the Faculty of Engineering and Environment (formerly the School of Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences) of Northumbria University at Newcastle, first as a senior lecturer and currently as a reader in power engineering. The main areas of my expertise are applications of electrical machines & drives and wind energy conversion systems (foremost control of wind turbine generators).

I lectured a range of power engineering subjects in the areas of electric machines/drives, renewable energy, power electronics and/or power systems across different undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. In addition, I had many invited presentations at reputable universities and scientific institutions across Europe (e.g. UK, Serbia, Slovenia, Italy, Turkey, France), China and Australia including continuous links with one the leading European graduate schools in electrical engineering, Ecole National Supérieure de l’Electronique et de ses Applications (ENSEA) in France, through ERASMUS teaching mobility grant schemes over the last 4 year
