Introduction
I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide. I received the BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering (major: power systems) from the Sharif University of Technology in 2016 and 2018, respectively. From 2018 to 2020, I worked as a research assistant at Sharif University of Technology. My research interests include power system optimization; distribution networks (planning and operation); and grid integration of renewables, electric vehicles, and energy storage.

Article
Full-text available
The ongoing rapid increase in the integration of variable and uncertain renewable energy sources calls for enhancing the ways of providing flexibility to power grids. To this end, we propose an optimal approach for utilizing electric vehicle parking lots to provide flexibility at the distribution level. Accordingly, we present a day-ahead schedulin...

Sectionalizing switches (SSs) and tie lines play essential roles in reducing the duration of customer interruptions in electricity distribution networks. The effectiveness of such assets is strongly influenced by their placement in the grid. Operation of SSs and tie lines is also inherently interdependent. Due to the structural complexities regardi...
Article
Full-text available
The rapid rise in the grid integration of low-carbon technologies, e.g., renewable energy sources (RESs) and plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), have led to several challenges in distribution networks (DNs). This is due to the intermittent generation of RESs and uncertain loads of PEVs, both of which necessitate enhancing the flexibility requirements...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Increasing grid integration of intermittent renewable energy sources (RESs) and plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) with uncertain behaviours have necessitated enhancing the flexibility requirements of distribution networks. Thus, in the state-of-the-art distribution network expansion planning (DNEP) models, both flexibility requirements and high pene...

Full-text available
In the past decade, enhancing the reliability of distribution networks by means of optimal switch placement has attracted much attention. In the case of failures in a distribution feeder, such disconnect switches will isolate the faulted section, and the customers downstream of the faulted point can be supplied by neighboring feeders through tie li...

Increasing penetration of renewable energy sources with intermittent generation calls for further flexibility requirements for efficient as well as the safe operation of power systems. Considering the significant growth of distributed energy resources in distribution systems, a promising approach to fulfill such requirements is to deploy local flex...
Article
Full-text available
The judicious placement of disconnecting switches is an efficient means to enhance the reliability of distribution networks. Aiming at optimizing the investment in these switches, this paper presents a mathematical programming-based model considering the installation of remote-controlled and manual switches at various locations in the distribution...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Employing more flexibility in power systems is one of the main challenges brought about by integrating more renewable energy sources in power systems. A promising way to overcome this challenge is to have local sources of flexibility in distribution level. In this respect, a novel approach is introduced in this paper for multi-stage distribution sy...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Electric motors have become one of the most important staples of industries. Electric motors’ lifespan is highly affected by the hotspot temperature of the motor during operation. Therefore, calculating and monitoring hotspot temperature can significantly increase the motor’s lifespan. However, obtaining a motor’s hotspot temperature through comple...
