Welcome to the Electric Power and Energy Systems (EPES) Research Laboratory
Welcome to the website of Electric Power and Energy Systems (EPES) Research Laboratory located at the Room ES211 of the Engineering Science Building of the University of Memphis. I serve as the Director of the Lab where the main research focus is on the smart grid/micro-grid control, cybersecurity issues, 5G technology, data analytics, electric vehicle charging, Loads forecasting and scheduling in smart building, and renewable energy systems. Over the years, the Lab is conducting research on transient stability, power quality, geomagnetically induced current (GIC), time delay, and cyber security issues of smart grid and micro-grid systems. In case of the renewable energy systems, the main research focus is about the fault ride through capability improvement and power quality issues of variable speed wind turbine generators and photovoltaic (PV) power generation systems. Also, the Lab performs research on modeling and simulations of various energy storage systems, like supercapacitor energy storage, battery energy storage and superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) systems. Currently 4 Ph.D. and 2 Masters students are working in the Lab.
We have an excellent facility and a highly motivated team that focuses on the application of state-of-the-art technology to modern applications. Results from our research have been patented and published in various top-ranked journal and international conference venues. The EPES Lab always aims at performing innovative, original and high quality research, making patents, and also publishing the research findings in peer-reviewed and top-ranked international journals and conferences. This website presents a summary of research areas, and current interests of our group. I invite you to explore our website and appreciate your interest. Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information, or click here to access my CV.
