Dr Dimitrios Tzelepis received the B.Eng (Hons) in Electrical Engineering, the M.Sc in Wind Energy Systems (with Distinction), and Ph.D in Protection, Fault Location and Control in MTDC grids from Technological Education Institution of Athens (2013) and University of Strathclyde (2014) and (2017) respectively. He is currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher with the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, U.K. He is a member of IEEE, IET and CIGRE and a regular reviewer for IEEE.
His main research interests lie within the area of power system protection, automation and control of future electricity grids, incorporating increased penetration of renewable energy sources and high voltage direct current interconnections. His main research methods include implementation of intelligent algorithms for protection, fault location and control applications including the utilisation of machine learning methods and advanced and intelligent signal processing techniques.
Dr Dimitrios Tzelepis is also interested in the application, control and protection of hybrid AC/DC grids including super-conducting feeders, non-homogeneous transmission lines and advanced sensing technologies. Additionally, he is investigating potential solutions towards the optimised performance of active distribution networks both in off-grid and on-grid modes, to facilitate a wide suite of grid services and control capabilities.
