Mohamed Abdalmagid received his master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Cairo University in Giza, Egypt in 2017. He also received a diploma in Business administration form department of continuing education from American University in Cairo (AUC), Egypt, 2017.
From 2013 to 2018, Mohamed worked for Electronics Research Institute, Egypt as an Assistant Researched and he was responsible for implementing a prototype of DFIG-based wind energy conversion system. From 2018 to 2019, Mohamed worked as a design engineer for EOIP company, Egypt and he was responsible for designing 1.5 KW on-board electric vehicle battery charger.
He is currently a Ph.D. student at McMaster University, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research is focused on electrical machines, power electronics, electric vehicles, renewable energy. From 2019, he has been with Prof. Emadi research team at McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC).
Since he was an undergraduate student in Shoubra Faculty of Engineering, Benha, Egypt, Mohamed has found power electronics and theory of electrical machines are his areas of interest. He was always trying to simulate the electric machines and power electronics problems using Matlab as extra work, just because he loves these areas.
In 2013, Mohamed started working in doubly-fed induction machines (DFIM) in Electronics Research Institute as a part of his experimental works for master’s degree. Mohamed implemented the whole system of DFIG-based wind energy conversion system. Also, he implemented a PMSM-based wind turbine emulation system to drive the DFIG.
In 2018, Mohamed designed AC to DC 1.5 KW on-board battery charger for electric vehicle applications. The design based on zero-voltage switching full bridge converter with input power factor correction.
Since coming to McMaster University, Mohamed has enjoyed working as a Research Assistant and Teaching Assistant for electric engineering courses. He loves teaching and motivating undergraduate students, and this position gives him this opportunity.
Now in McMaster Automotive/Aerospace Resource Center, Mohamed is a member of electrical machine design for electric vehicles and MORE aircraft applications. Mohamed works mainly on the electromagnetic design of axial-flux permanent magnet synchronous motors and switched reluctance motors. Also, Mohamed is responsible for partial discharge analysis of motor windings and the selection of motor windings insulation materials.
