Prof. Dr Marjan Popov for his valuable contributions to science and society has been elevated to an IEEE Fellow for 2022. This is one of the highest recognitions within the international society of the electrical engineers. Over the past 17 years, prof. Popov has been conducting research in the field of protection of electrical grid. Some of the groundbreaking findings from Marjan’s research are how the cable and high-voltage circuit breakers influence the resonances during transformer (de)energization. Marjan also proved that the frequency dependent impedance of soil significantly affected transformers.
Marjan was born in 1969 in Kavadarci, graduated at Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Macedonia in 1993 and worked at the Faculty as teaching and research assistant. In 1998 he completed the master-level and in 2002 the doctor-level studies at the Technical University Delft, the Netherlands.
Most heartfelt congratulations from FEEIT!
