​Main Research Areas
The smart grid research group members are engaged in interdisciplinary research focused on the following priority lines of research: 
  1. Power management by controlling the injected power to the smart grid
  2. Operating different energy sources from the distributed generation systems
  3. Operation and control of the smart grid, in which it includes the following:     

Grid-Connected Mode:
i. Protection schemes by considering different flows of power with over current protection.
ii.  Power management and distributed generation systems. (Dr. Ramesh, Dr. Amr, Dr. Abdul Kadir, Dr. Mohamed, and Dr. Ali )
iii.  Integration of PV-system with the power grid/microgrid (Dr. Abdul Kadir)
iv. Signal processing/estimation techniques for microgrids (Dr. Amr and Dr. Mohamed) 

Islanded Mode:   
i. Operation and control of microgrids/smart grids. (Dr. Amr, Dr. Ramesh, Dr. Mohamed, Dr. Abdul Kadir, and Dr. Ali)
ii.  Building an experimental prototype of the microgrid (Dr. Amr, Dr. Abdul Kadir, Dr. Ramesh, and Dr. Ali)
iii. Advanced drive systems. (Dr. Ali and Dr. Amr)
