Ahmad Attarha

I am currently a PhD student in Engineering & Computer Science. I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees both in electrical engineering from Semnan University, Semnan, Iran in 2012 and 2015, respectively. My research interests include power systems operation and optimisation.

  • Power System Operation and Planning.
  • Grid Integration of DER
  • Distributed Optimisation.
  • Robust Optimisation.
