Dr Hamid Alturbeh joint University of Huddersfield in February 2016 as a research\industrial fellow at Institute of Railway Research.
Dr Alturbeh has a multidisciplinary academic background with a PhD degree in aerospace engineering from Cranfield University and two master degrees; a Master by Research focused on directional drilling control systems from Cranfield University, and a Master of Science with distinction in automation and control from Newcastle University, and BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Dr Hamid is expert in modelling, simulation, and control of aerodynamic, mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical systems using different software packages
Currently, he is conducting research projects for the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) as part of a Strategic Partnership with the University of Huddersfield. This includes projects related to modelling, simulation, and control of train braking/traction systems at very low adhesion conditions, wheel-rail contact model, and train speed estimation.
Dr Hamid is skilled in advanced control systems design, states estimation and parameters identification techniques, optimal control, model predictive control, fuzzy logic control, trajectory planning for autonomous systems, electric drives, and traction and braking control at low adhesion conditions. Expert in MATLAB/Simulink, State flow, and Simscape's packages (multibody, Electrical, Mechanical, ...etc.). And he has a good knowledge in C++, Visual Basic, Solidworks.
In addition to his academic experience, Dr Hamid has an industrial experience as he has worked for two years as a field engineer in oil and gas industry specialist in gas turbine and instrumentation.
