Dr. Igor Boiko
Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Dr. Igor Boiko is currently a Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Khalifa University, Sas Al Nakhl Campus in Abu Dhabi.
His main research interests are in the area of Control Theory and Process Control applications, with the focus on dynamics and control of processes in the oil and gas industry, as well as the theory of nonlinear and particularly discontinuous control systems. Such his theoretical developments as the Locus of a perturbed relay system (LPRS) method, the paradigm of coordinated test and tuning of PID controllers, the notion of phase deficit, dynamic harmonic balance principle, the notion of fractal dynamics are recognized as important contributions to the control theory. Dr. Boiko has authored four books and a number of book chapters, articles in refereed journals and conference proceedings (over 180 in total). He holds 3 US patents in the area of industrial control.
Dr. Boiko has extensive industrial experience in the petro-chemical industry in the area of automation, distributed control systems and process control. He worked in various engineering capacities for such companies as Honeywell, SNC Lavalin, ChevronTexaco, Syncrude Canada and developed a number of innovative control applications successfully used in the industry. He also led the design of control systems on a few Canadian mega-projects.
