Members of the main research team

Professors of the NTUA, involved in the main research team are world-class scientists with many transnational and inter-university partnerships with research institutions such as PPC, many municipalities of the country, private companies such as Intracom, Electric Power Companies, other European universities, etc.

In particular:

Prof Dr Topalis is considered one of the most specialized scientists in the field of high voltage and especially in the behaviour of air gaps and also in matters of energy saving in electrical installations. He was a member of the previous project held in the T.E.I. of Larissa from 2004 to 2010,

Prof Dr. Kousiouris is one of the most specialized scientists in Automation systems and in the theory of networks and process simulation with the help of mathematical equations and complex electronic circuits. He has excellent mathematical skills.

Prof Dr. Kladas is an expert in field analysis with numerical methods and especially with the finite elements method and teaches the same Master course at the NTUA. His transnational and interdisciplinary collaborations resulting from his curriculum vita which is attached. He was a member of the previous project held in the T.E.I. of Larissa from 2008 to 2010,

The coordinator of the project and the other 2 professors of the TEI of Larissa involved in the main team are scientists with a great research and laboratory experience with partnerships at the level of the TEI, as well as Universities of internal and external.

Prof Dr. Maglaras has significant inter-university connections with the NTUA, where he has completed his PhD thesis, with the Polytechnic University of Patras, with all the electrical departments of the TEI and Universities of England and Germany within the European Socrates and Leonardo programs. He was coordinator of many European educational programs as well as a research program of the TEI Larissa relevant to the subject of this proposal and 3 other research programs of the TEI Larissa, the two within the program of ‘Archimedes II’. He was coordinator and main researcher of the previous project held in the T.E.I. of Larissa from 2004 to 2010

Prof Dr. Dafopoulos has participated in research programs of the TEI of Larissa.

Prof Dr. Zaoutsos has significant Greek, as well as international scientific-research action in subjects of special constructions, mathematical analysis of fields, as well as simulations with special software. He is the coordinator of a research programme of the T.E.I. of Larissa, within the European project “Thalis”.
