In Memory of Prof Bouktir Tarek
The key founder of the Journal of Electrical Systems (JES)

Professor Tarek Bouktir was born in Ras El-Oued, Algeria in 1971. After graduating from Setif University (Algeria) in 1994 with the degree of Engineer in Electrical Engineering Power systems, he moved to Annaba University (Algeria) where he obtained his Magister in 1998. He pursued his postgraduate studies in power systems at Batna University (Algeria) where he completed his PhD in 2003. He started his teaching as professor assistant and later as associate professor at the department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in Larbi Ben M'hidi University of Oum El-Bouaghi (Algeria). He moved later in 2009 to Ferhat Abbas University of Setif (Algeria). At the age of 38, he became a full professor. During the last (10 years), he taught continuously at Ferhat Abbas Steif University. He was one of the main architect in conducting several courses and PhD programs where he played a pivotal role in the development of the discipline of electrical power systems and related courses of academic studies in the department of electrical engineering. During his years of active service in Algeria, he authored many published papers, supervised many Master, Magister and PhD students, organized several international conferences and national events and held several administrative and scientific positions. He served as Director of Institute of Electrical Engineering, University of Larbi Ben M'Hidi, Oum El Bouaghi (Algeria) from 2003 to 2007 He was the key founder and the Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Electrical Systems (JES) which would have never come to being without Prof Tarek's contribution. He worked hardly and gave unstintingly of his time to accomplish its appearance from the first issue. He was also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Automation & Systems Engineering (JASE). Professor Bouktir Tarek was an epitome of self-discipline and an analytical mind, an enthusiastic researcher in the study and pursuit of new advances in electrical engineering and an indefatigable mentor in the guidance and preparation of the new generation of young students and researchers. Professor Tarek was one of the finest professors and leaders in Algeria academia. He was a great man, all in humility, humor and sensitivity. He is an exceptional being as there are very few with flexibility when dealing with others; a quality that reflects his ability as person who knows, not only to speak and explain complex points of many cases, but also to listen to the opinions of others. He also taught others dedication and hard work, not only through his words but rather by his good deeds, where his generosity of spirit, wisdom and sense of humor made such a difference for his person. The passing of Professor Bouktir Tarek is a big loss to the university and the scientific community at large. He will be remembered by his immense scientific contributions to his home university. His character, ethical standards, scientific contribution, teaching and training of many of young minds in the fields of electrical engineering will help to continue the legacy of this exceptional scientific and honorable human being. We were all saddened of his untimely passing, and sent our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. While we share the sadness of his family and friends, we ask Allah Almighty to forgive and have mercy upon him, excuse and pardon him, and make honorable his reception; admit him into the paradise; protect him from the punishment of the grave and the torment of the hell fire.
