Teaching:

Prof. Farid is involved in the teaching of several undergraduate and graduate courses at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College.
Courses Taught at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College:
  • ENGS 22 - Systems: The student is introduced to the techniques of modeling and analyzing lumped systems of a variety of types, including electrical, mechanical, reacting, fluid, and thermal systems. System input will be related to output through ordinary differential equations, which will be solved by analytical and numerical techniques. Systems concepts such as time constant, natural frequency, and damping factor are introduced. The course includes computer and laboratory exercises to enhance the students’ understanding of the principles of lumped systems. Students will develop the ability to write MATLAB code. (Prof. Farid as Lead Instructor in Fall 2016).
  • ENGS 175 - Energy Systems: A consideration of energy futures and energy service supply chains at a systemic level. Dynamic development of demand and supply of primary energy sources and key energy carriers will be considered first assuming continuation of current trends, and then with changes to current trends in order to satisfy constraints such as limiting carbon emissions and changing resource availability. Integrated analysis of spatially-distributed time-variable energy systems will also be addressed, with examples including generation, storage, and distribution of electricity and production of energy from biomass. (Prof. Farid - Lead Instructor, Prof. Peterson Co-Instructor in Spring 2016)
Courses Taught at the Masdar Institute of Science & Technology

  • ESM 501 - System Architecture: As one of the first stages of system design, analysis, and engineering. Emphasis is placed on engineering systems which include technical, economic and social aspects.
  • ESM 616 - Techno-Economic Analyses in Power Systems Operation: As a collection of modeling, simulation and optimization tools relevant to the technical reliability and cost efficiency of modern power systems. Emphasis is placed on the integration of renewables, demand side management, smart grid technologies, electric vehicles and water infrastructure.
