Professor Reza Iravani is one of five U of T Engineering professors inducted into the Canadian Academy of Engineering.

Professor Reza Iravani of The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) was among five University of Toronto professors inducted as Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE).

The CAE is a national institution through which Canada’s most distinguished and experienced engineers provide strategic advice on matters of critical importance to the country.

Professor Iravani has developed innovative solutions to several engineering problems associated with the applications of power electronics and emerging control and operational concepts in electrical energy systems, including utilization and grid-integration of renewable energy resources, efficient utilization of the legacy-grid asset, and modernization of the electric grid. He is the former editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery and co-author of the reference book ‘Voltage-sourced Converters’. His contributions to the field of electrical power engineering have been recognized with fellowships in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Royal Society of Canada.

“The Academy’s recognition of so many U of T engineers demonstrates the Faculty’s leadership at a national level across all areas of the engineering profession,” said U of T Engineering Dean  Chris Yip. “My enthusiastic congratulations to all the recipients.”
