Professional Experience

Fariba Fateh joined the department of electrical and computer engineering at Kansas State in January 2016. Prior to her doctoral study, she worked as a design engineer at Epower LLC in Wisconsin. She teaches control systems design, advanced systems theory, and system identification and adaptive control.


Fateh’s main research areas involve system modeling, linear and nonlinear control of electro-mechanical systems, torsional vibration mitigation, and control education. In the past five years, her research focus has been on modeling and control of both DFIG-based and PMG-based wind turbine systems. In her work on the maximum power capturing and vibration mitigations for wind turbine systems, she has extensively used National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)’s Fatigue, Aerodynamics, Structures and Turbulence (FAST) Code. She is a member of PEAS research group at KSU and interested in modeling and control of dynamical phenomena in mobile systems.

Academic Highlights

Fateh is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of Control Systems Society, as well as Phi Kappa Phi and Sigma-Xi Honor Societies. She has served as an associate editor in American Control Conference (ACC) 2016-20 and Dynamic Systems and Control Conference 2016-20. She has authored or co-authored more than 25 conference and journal papers. She served as a session chair at American Control Conference, as well as a reviewer for IEEE IAS Transactions and several IEEE Conferences (ACC, DSCC, CCCT, ECCE, APEC, and IECON).
