Iman Sadeghkhani received the B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in electrical engineering from the Islamic Azad University of Najafabad, Najafabad, Iran, in 2007, and the M.Sc. (Hons.) degree in electrical engineering from the University of Kashan, Kashan, Iran, in 2009. He is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering with the Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran. His areas of interest include control and management of microgrids, power electronics interfaces for distributed generation, and power system protection. Mr. Sadeghkhani was a recipient of the University of Kashan Award for Distinguished Research in 2010 and the Exceptional Reviewer Award from the IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery in 2014.

are an inherent part of smart grids.

A Microgrid is an electrical distribution network consisted of distributed generators, local loads, and energy storage systems that can operate in grid-connected or islanded modes. Different technologies are combined together, such us power converters, control, communications, optimization, and so on. This way the energy can be generated and stored near to the consumption points, improving the stability and reducing the losses produced by the large power lines.

Microgrid Research Programme


I teach various courses and conduct research on power systems.

There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.
Ray Goforth
Hard work is painful when life is devoid of purpose. But when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love.
Steve Pavlina
Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
Brian Tracy
I know you've heard it a thousand times before. But it's true -- hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don't love something, then don't do it.
