Stefan Breban was born on 21 December 1981 in Baia-Sprie, Maramures. Between 1996 and 2000 he attends the school of Post and Telecommunications from Baia-Mare (now "George Baritiu" College), specialization "Computing Technology". The first year as student finds him at "Gheorghe Asachi" Technical University of Iasi and from second year he continues at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, in 2005 and 2006, respectively and the Ph.D. degree jointly from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca and the Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Arts et Metiers (ENSAM) de Lille, France, in 2008, all diplomas in electrical engineering. He is currently with the Department of Electric Machines and Drives, Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania as Lecturer and Researcher.

RESEARCH TOPICS AND INTERESTS
Dr. Stefan Breban has published (as author or co-author) 2 books, 28 scientific journal or conference articles and has 1 EPO patent application and 1 Romanian patent application. He follows two main research areas: renewable energy conversion and electrification of transportation. In the domain of renewable energy conversion Dr. Stefan Breban he works mainly on the micro-wind turbine systems and for limited period of time he worked on a micro-hydro turbine power system (PhD thesis). More electric transport is another area of interest for Dr. Stefan Breban. In this domain he worked on the energy management of embedded power systems and recently he started to develop the electromechanical system for an ultra-light battery electric vehicle.
He is the Administrator of BMEnergy Ltd. a small company with the main activity in the development of micro-wind turbine systems. With this company he participates in two collaborative research projects with Technical University of Cluj-Napoca:
1. Innovative wind energy conversion micro-system with direct-driven electric generator for residential uses (2012 - 2016);
2. Renewable sources energy management system for small isolated communities (2014 - 2017).
