Arash Tavighi

Postdoctoral Research Fellow


E-mail: arashtav[at]ece.ubc.ca
Office Location: Kaiser Building, Room 3070 (Power Research Lab)


Ph.D. Electrical Engineering – The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, 2017.
M.Sc. Electrical Engineering – University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, 2008.
B.Sc. Electrical Engineering – Azad University of South-Tehran, Tehran, Iran, 2005.


Arash contributed in developing two transmission line models: Frequency-Dependent Line Model (FDLM) and Discrete-Time Fourier Series (DTFS). The FDLM is a time-domain model which is numerically more efficient than the existing line models while it physically coincides with the behaviour of a real line. The DTFS is a frequency-domain tool which is used as a reference solution to improve the accuracy of the time-domain models. The DTFS is more accurate, numerically more efficient, and much simpler to implement than the existing frequency-domain solutions.

Arash is currently collaborating with Professor Jose R. Marti on power system transient modelling and simulation.
