Prof. Om P. Malik, IEEE Fellow
University of Calgary, Canada

Biography: Professor Om P. Malik has done pioneering work in the development of controllers for application in electric power systems and wind power generation over the past 45 years. After extensive testing, the adaptive controllers developed by his group are now employed on large generating units. His other interests include digital protection, control of renewable power generation and micro-grids, and AI applications in power system control. He has published over 700 papers including over 360 papers in international Journals and is the coauthor of two books. Professor Malik graduated in 1952 from Delhi Polytechnic. After working for nine years in electric utilities in India, he obtained a Master’s Degree from Roorkee University in 1962, a Ph.D. from London University and a DIC from the Imperial College, London in 1965. He was teaching and doing research in Canada from 1966 to 1997 and continues to do research as Professor Emeritus at the University of Calgary. Over 100, including 45 Ph.D., students have graduated under his supervision.
