Lecturer within Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton.


Efstratios (Stratis) Batzelis is an “Engineering for Development” Research Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) and has been a Lecturer at ECS since Apr 2021. Prior to that post, Stratis was a Research Fellow at Imperial College London since Nov 2019 and before that he held an EU Marie-Curie individual fellowship on photovoltaic control & integration from Nov 2017. He obtained his PhD degree from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece in 2016.

Stratis is an experienced researcher with many IEEE publications and a funding track record of more than £1.6 million. He is a Senior IEEE member, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and an Associate Editor in IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy. He is an advocate of sustainable energy and the fight against climate change. His research interests involve renewable energy technologies and distributed energy resources, mainly solar photovoltaics and inverter-based generation, power electronics control and power system stability.


Research interests

Specialised in solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and bridging the disciplines of power electronics and power systems, Stratis is currently working on the technical challenges of solar integration in the developed and developing world. His research focuses on modelling, control and intergation spects of PV systems and other distributed energy resources (DERs) into the power system.
