Dan D. Micu, Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, is currently Fulbright Scholar at ECE of the University of Florida. In his seminar on Jan. 29, 2018, he will review the results of research in the following areas:

  • Numerical modelling, simulation, and in situ evaluation of different electromagnetic interference problems
  • Electromagnetic field analysis, synthesis, and optimization
  • Artificial intelligence algorithms and inverse problems in electromagnetics
  • Lightning interferences and protection of infrastructures
  • Energy solutions for efficient use of energy for industrial and residential consumers


Prof. Dan D. Micu received Bachelor degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca in 1998 and the Babes-Bolyai University in 2001, respectively. He received a Master’s degree and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, in 1999 and 2004, respectively. In 2000-2003, he was also with Vrije University in Brussel, Belgium.

Since 1999 he has been with the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, where he is currently Full Professor and Director of the Numerical Methods Research Center. Between 2006 and 2010, he was also the RDI Project Manager at the Managerial Agency of Scientific Research, Innovation, and Technological Transfer of the Ministry of Education and Research of Romania.

Prof. Micu has authored or coauthored over 200 scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at international conferences. He also authored/coauthored 12 books, 3 of which are published by international publishing houses. He was project manager for 6 research grants and more than 20 research projects for industry. His current areas of research interest include numerical methods and modelling techniques in electromagnetics; artificial intelligence algorithms and inverse problems; electromagnetic field analysis, synthesis and optimization; and energy efficiency solutions. He was the General Chairman of the 49th International Universities Power Engineering Conference (UPEC) in 2014. He is a member of six International Steering Committees and reviewer for nine international scientific journals.

Prof. Micu received the Excellence Award for young researchers in 2008, the 2nd Prize Award for Research Projects in 2008, Professor Bologna National Prize in 2012, Excellence Award for researchers in 2014, 4 national prizes awarded by the National Authority of Scientific Research for ISI Journal papers in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, and the Romanian Energy Award – Special Jury Award, in 2015.
