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-
