FEATURED AUTHOR

Alexander V. Dimitrov


I have spent the last 35 years conducting systematic research in energy efficiency, computer simulations of energy consumption in buildings, the distribution of air flow in an occupied space, modeling of heat transfer in building envelope, as well as the assessment of energy transfer through building envelope and ducts of HVAC systems for institutions such as Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, UNLV –College of Engineering, Center for Energy Research and Stanford University.

Biography

Alexander Dimitrov is a professional lecturer with 35 years of experience at four different universities.  In addition to universities in Bulgaria, Dr. Dimitrov has lectured and studied at leading scientific laboratories and institutes, including the Institute of Mass and Heat exchange ”Likijov”, Byelorussian Academy of Sciences, Minsk; Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Environmental Energy Technology Division, Indoor Environment Department; UNLV –College of Engineering, Center for Energy Research; Stanford University, California, Mechanical Department.
           Professor Dimitrov has conducted systematic research in energy efficiency, computer simulations of energy consumption in buildings, the distribution of air flow in an occupied space, modeling of heat transfer in building envelope and leaks in the ducts of HVAC systems. He has defended two scientific degrees: Doctor of Philosophy (in 1980 - Ph.D.) and Doctor of Science (in 2012 -D.Sc.). Professor Dimitrov has significant audit experience in the energy systems of buildings and their subsystems.  He has developed an original method for evaluating the performance of the building envelope and energy labeling of buildings.  He also has experience in the assessment of energy transfer through building envelope and ducts of HVAC systems. His methodology has been applied in several projects with great success.  He has developed a mathematical model for assessment of the environmental sustainability of buildings, named BG_LEED. He earned his Professor Degree in “Engineering Installations in the Buildings” with the dissertation “The building energy systems in the conditions of environmental sustainability” at European Polytechnical University in 2012.  He has authored more than 100 scientific articles and 9 books, including 4 in English.
