Electrical Engineering

Aswan University




Ahmed Thabet was born in Aswan, Egypt in 1974. He received the BSc (FEE) Electrical Engineering degree in 1997, and MSc (FEE) Electrical Engineering degree in 2002 both from the Faculty of Energy Engineering, Aswan, Egypt. The Ph.D. degree had been received in Electrical Engineering in 2006 from El-Minia University, Minia, Egypt. He joined with Electrical Power Engineering Group of Faculty of Energy Engineering at South Valley University as a Demonstrator in July 1999, until; he held Professor position in October 2017 up to date. His research interests lie in the areas of analysis and developing electrical engineering models and applications, investigating novel nanotechnology materials via addition nano-scale particles and additives for usage in the industrial branch, electromagnetic materials, electroluminescence and the relationship with electrical and thermal ageing of industrial polymers. A lot of mobility has investigated for supporting his research experience in the UK, Finland, Italy, and the USA …etc. In 2009, he had been a Principle Investigator of a funded project from Science and Technology Development Fund “STDF” for developing industrial materials of ac and dc applications by nano-technology techniques through it was published many scientific researches interested in developing industrial applications using the latest technologies in nanotechnology. He has been established 1st Nano-Technology Research Centre in Upper Egypt, hence, he filed several patents in the field of various engineering applications. He has high-quality publications which have been published and under published incited international journals and conferences. In 2018, he has been held a full professor position in Engineering of College at Qassim University in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia up to date.

Area of Interests

  • Nano-Science Engineering Materials: Investigate novel nanotechnology materials that have been prepared from nano-composite materials via addition Nan scale particles and additives for usage in the industrial field. Control in the electrical properties and the characteristics of the dielectric materials with respect to our request and the usage in ac or dc technology.
  • Utilization of Renewable Energy: Wind resource likes that wind prediction on the settlements sites where the alternative RE power systems are supposed to work. Analysis for the whole settlement including the use of PV or HPS and setting recommendations for settlers in the selected area. Technical and analysis of the most suitable PV system for new regions.
  • High Voltage Engineering: Developing models and analysis for the Electromagnetic pollution, High Voltage Engineering, Electrostatic Precipitation, Electric Field Calculations, Electric field measurements, Electric coronas calculations, Electric coronas measurements, Environmental impact of high voltage transmission lines, Electric Power Engineering (generation, transmission, and distribution).
  • Distribution network enhancement planning: according to load increase is a very important problem. Since the enhancement needs huge costs and long lead times, the plan should be built in order to restrain vain investments. In addition, the investment return of distribution system enhancement is naturally small and utility's incentive is getting lower due to the deregulation in the power industry.
  • Switchgear and Protection Models: Developing, design, and analysis ATP/EMTP simulation models for over-voltage protection, transmission line, transformers, earthing, and cables, active protection from electromagnetic field hazards of a high voltage power line.
  • Energy Engineering Applications: Modifying theoretical techniques to real-life engineering applications, particularly to high voltage engineering, protection engineering and so, power system applications.
  • Electric Power Quality: Improving power factor correction; design new filters for removing harmonics, enhancing the performance of power capacitors bank, design new lightning arresters, design new batteries, and UPS for continuity electric power.
