Tatiana Minav


Assistant Professor at Tampere University


Electric and hybrid powertrain, zonal hydraulics, efficiency

Tatiana Minav (PI, D.Sc. (Tech.) is part of the IHA-Innovative hydraulics and Automation unit in the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences of Tampere University/Finland. She received a Doctor of Science degree (D.Sc.) from Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), Finland in 2011. She is an expert in electro-hydrostatic systems and actuators, cylinder’s sensorless position motion control, simulation, energy balance and energy recovery systems in off-road mobile machinery. She has been working on the electrification of off-road machinery for over 10 years. During her academic career, she worked in 5 industrial projects funded by Business Finland (former Tekes), and as PI in the projects IZIF and ArcticWEll which were funded by the Academy of Finland and related to electro-hydraulics system implementation for electrification of off-road machinery. She is the author of over 90 publications.
