Mohammad Saeed Misaghian received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz, Ahvaz, Iran, in 2015, and the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Planning and Management of Electrical Energy Systems) from Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran, in 2017. During his M.Sc. programme, he worked on optimal operation of active distribution systems in the presence of uncertain renewable energy sources. Apart from the academic environment, he was a researcher at Niroo Research Institute (NRI) and working on multiple industrial projects. Firstly, he was with the Center for the Development of Bulk Power Transmission Systems, NRI, where he worked on investigating the strategy of using bulk power transmission technology in the electrical connection of Iran's grid to its neighboring countries. Afterward, he joined Center for the Development of Electric Vehicle (EV) Technology, NRI, where he worked on planning the pilot of electric taxis in Tehran, Iran and also investigating and analyzing the EV charge stations for EV taxis in Tehran, Iran.
Saeed’s research interest lies at power system optimization, microgrids, demand response programs, energy management, and flexibility in the power system. Currently, he is a PhD researcher under the supervision of Dr. Damian Flynn at UCD and is working on “Optimization of gas & electricity systems for commercial industrial buildings”.
