Zdenko Šimić is an associate professor at the Department of Power Systems (Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb). Most of his more than 20 years of work is related to teaching, research and development of risk, reliability and energy resources analysis. His most recent work is related to wind, solar and hydro power energy resources modeling with emphases to the energy resources variability and power conversion systems characteristics for the Croatian-specific weather data, and connecting this with ongoing power system transformation to smart grid. Topics of special interests are modeling and assessment of higher share interconnection of intermittent renewable energy sources and power system security considering emerging phenomena. Significant effort focus is also directed to the improvement of renewable energy sources power generation prediction. He is also working on the risk related topics like binary decision diagrams and complex technology models. He is currently visiting scientist at the EC JRC-IET. He has been chair four years of the IEEE Croatian Power and Energy Society, two years president of the Croatian Nuclear Society, and member of IEEE NPEC.
