A good place to farm this is on the legion loyalty mission on The Phoenix Massing. I used miranda since she had the overload ability for one of my squad mates (it defaults to legion as the other).

You can get your 1st one as you enter the initial area of the base. After that you will have 2 cannons you can hack and use on enemies and one of the enemies coming out the door has a shield. Use your ability on that one after a quick time slowdown and a shot or 2 with a gun. You will then enter a room with 2 more you can do. Slow down time, a few shots to take out part of the shield, use miranda for the overload and then hit the other one towards the door at the other end of the room.

You now have 4 total and then you just reload the autosave and get another 3. Takes maybe 10 minutes to get all 25 done. Get your 3 and keep reloading the autosave until the 25 are done.
