Ahmed Samir Eldessouky is an associate professor at renewable energy department, Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering (FEEE), Cairo Egypt. He obtained his undergraduate degree from Air defense College, Alexandria, Egypt in 1991. He received his Ph.D. from Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston, Ontario, Canada in 2002. Dr. Ahmed spent 12 years in Air Defense Research Center. The focus of his research on this period was in motion control, image processing, and hardware interface to digital systems.
Dr. Ahmed was working as Postdoctoral Fellow at ESCL lab, University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science in the period between Sept. 2014 and Sept. 2015. His main contribution during this period was in investigating the energy conservation measures and energy generation opportunities within buildings that could provide high KPIs. The activities were the development of energy knowledgebase for industrial and societal facilities, creating KPI models of building MEG, producing simulation environment for different simulation programs allowing energy simulation programs (Energy Plus and Hommer) to interchanging data with Matlab and Simulink, and designing optimization algorithms of energy sources and loads interconnection.
His current research is focused on, structure optimization of distributed generators (DG) within micro-grid (MG) and maximum power point tracking (MPPT) structure and algorithm for PV systems in grid connected and islanded modes.
Dr. Ahmed published 20 paper in well-known journals and conferences and he is a co-author of two books. He received four Medal of Honor during his work at Egyptian military for his achievements.
Ph.D. from Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston, Ontario, Canada in 2002.
B.Sc.from Air defense College, Alexandria, Egypt in 1991.
