    Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
    Montana State University-Bozeman
   


Background

Dr. Nehrir received his BS, MS, and Ph.D. all in electrical engineering from Oregon State University in 1969, 1971, and 1978, respectively. He started his educational career in 1971 and joined The Montana State University (MSU) Electrical Engineering faculty in 1987. He has taught a variety of courses on electric power systems, alternative energy power generation, electric machinery, electric circuits, and control. Dr. Nehrir's active research include modeling, control, and energy management of alternative energy distributed generation (DG) sources and micro-grids with multiple alternative energy and conventional DG sources, load control (demand response), and application of intelligent control to power systems. His research has been supported by the following sources: The National Science Foundation, NSF-EPSCoR, USDOE, DOE-EPSCoR, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Electric Power Research Institute, The Montana Power Company (now NothWestern Energy), Montana Electric Power Cooperatives, and Montana Electric Power Affiliates Program (MEPRA).

Dr. Nehrir's research on fuel cell modeling and control, during 1999-2009, resulted in dynamic models for PEM and solid-oxide fuel cells, suitable for distributed generation studies. These models are being used around the world. For more information about the models and download for research and educational purposes, go to Fuel Cell Models. His 2009 book, Modeling and Control of Fuel Cells: Distributed Generation Applications (co-authored by his former graduate student, Dr. Caisheng Wang), published by Wiley-IEEE Press, stands as the culmination of his nearly ten years of continued research in this area.

Dr. Nehrir has lectured on his research activities around the globe, including Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, Poland, and USA. He is an editor of IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy, a recipient of MSU's Wiley Faculty Award for Meritorious Research in 2010, and a Life Fellow of IEEE.
