High voltage engineering, power systems transient, applied electromagnetics in electric power systems.


Behzad Kordi received the B.Sc. (with distinction), M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees all in electrical engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Tehran, Iran, in 1992, 1995, and 2000, respectively. During 1998 and 1999, he was with the Lightning Studies Group at the University of Toronto, Canada. In 2002, he joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Manitoba, Canada where he is currently a full professor and the director of McMath High Voltage Laboratory. His research interests include high voltage engineering, electromagnetic compatibility in power systems, simulation models of power transformers and transmission lines, and condition monitoring of high voltage apparatus. Dr. Kordi was the chair of URSI Canada Commission E in 2012-13. He is a member of a number of Cigre working groups pertinent to transient modeling of power system apparatus. He is also an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation and IET High Voltage. Dr. Kordi is a registered professional engineer in the province of Manitoba and was the recipient of 2012 IEEE EMC Richard B. Schulz best transactions paper award.
