Mohamed E. El-Hawary
Dr. El-Hawary is a consultant and professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. He has a a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, University of Alberta, Edmonton, 1972, where he was an Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Fellow from 1970 to 1972. Dr. El-Hawary’s contributions to electrical engineering research, education, and the profession cover more than forty years of sustained work in research, education and service to the community. On the research side, Dr. El-Hawary early research work focused on computational solutions for economic operation of power systems including hydro-thermal systems. His fundamental work on economic operation of power systems, the application of computational intelligence techniques to power system operational problems is frequently referred to by the users community, and is documented in ten textbooks and research monographs and more than 300 research articles. More recently, he contributed to the solution of optimization problems and power quality issues and standards in electric power distribution systems. He taught many professional development offerings as well as Distinguished lectures in many parts of the world.
