My Qualifications

  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Electrical Engineering, University of New South Wales, Sydney, 2015-2018
  • MSc, Electrical Engineering, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xián, China, 2012- 2014
  • BSc, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology, Chittagong, Bangladesh, 2007- 2011

My Research Activities

Dr Mahmud's current research is focused on a coordinated energy management system development for the demand management of the internet of energy and the virtual power plant through robust and resilient peer-to-peer energy transactions. In a recently published research work, he proposed a floating microgrid to provide real-time load and ancillary support to small disperse islands. It provides a unique solution to mitigate the power crisis of the islanders, and it draws significant media attention. Read full stories-
