Expertise:

Željko Ban was born on 1962 in Republic of Croatia. He received B. Sc., M. Sc., and PhD degrees from the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing in 1985, 1991, and 1999 respectively.

Between 1985 and 1988 he worked as research fellow at Koncar-Institute of electrical engineering in Zagreb. Since 1988 he has been with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Zagreb. His current position is the associate professor at Department of Control and Computer Engineering in Automation, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb.

His research interests were concerned on adaptive and optimal control of the electrical drives and intelligent and adaptive control of the systems. From the 2006 his research activities were concerned on intelligent control of the fuel cell energy sources, as well as control of the micro grid consist of photovoltaic systems, fuel cell systems and wind energy sources.

Since 1988, Ž. Ban was involved in several scientific projects financed by Ministry of science and technology of Republic of Croatia as a researcher in area of mathematical modelling and simulation of the system and adaptive and optimal control.

Since 2002 he was project leader of two projects financed by Ministry of science and technology of Republic of Croatia. Projects were as follows: Intelligent and adaptive control of the systems, and Control system of the fuel cells energy source with the cogeneration.

Besides that, Ž. Ban was involved in several projects in cooperation with the Croatian industry related to modelling simulation and controller design of the system. He was also involved in the cooperation with United Technology Research Centre, East Hartford, USA in research problems related to Solar Irradiance, Wind Speed and Wind Turbine Models for the design and control of Hybrid Power Systems. Currently he is involved as a team member in the FP7 ACROSS project.

 

Research Interests:

Scientific fields of interest: modelling and simulation of the technical systems, advanced control theory, adaptive control, alarm systems.

Application: Control of the electric drives, control of the fuel cell systems, control of the DC/DC, and DC/AC controllers, control of the micro grid.
