I am a doctoral student/project researcher in Smart Electric Systems research group, The School of Technology and Innovations. This research group is well-known for developing solutions based on modern information, communication and automation for various applications including smart grids.


The main area of my research is to design, model, and control Harbour Area Smart Grid (HASG) with application of battery energy storage systems. My research focuses on modelling and designing of innovative solutions for harbour area smart grid with advanced control techniques for power balance in grid connected and islanded mode of operation, and peak-power reduction with sizing and allocation of battery energy storages systems in seaport microgrid.
