Vision and Mission

Business Development Manager

The Smart/Micro Grids Research Center (SMGRC) provides a rich source of training, testing, and experimental Lab facilities for various smart grid and microgrid (MG) projects,specifically in area of advanced robust and intelligent control synthesis and analysis methodologies. In addition to the modeling and simulation environment for training and educational purpose,a wide range of distributed generators (e.g.,PV panel,wind turbine,diesel generator),energy capacitor systems, grid components,modules,and sub-systems are available for different class of testing and validation capabilities. The SMGRC flexibility allows working on multiple configurations in view point of MG types (DC,AC,and hybrid),operating modes (grid-connected and islanded),and multiple MGs clusters. The central core of the existing platform is a real-time simulator that can be connected to hardware equipment through power amplifiers. The University of Kurdistan and West Regional Electric Co. (WREC) are the main domestic supporters of the SMGRC. The SMGRC is going to be configured to accommodate a variety of research activities on smart grid and MG subsystems such as smart monitoring, control and management.

Research Areas

The SMGRC is focused on modeling, advanced control, protection, management, and planning of AC and DC Microgrids. Different aspects of modern power systems and renewable energy sources are also subject of research in the SMGRC team.

Free Bootstrap Seminar


The SMGRC offers a broad range of research academic/industrial projects in all fields of interest. Each member of the SMGRC (or a group of them) is/are involved in an individual project.

Postgraduate Courses

The SMGRC offers postgraduate long-and-short courses in the field of Microgrids and Smart Grids. The courses provide students/researchers with the theoretical and technical knowledge to embark on an independent research projects. The students/researchers from outside University of Kurdistan are welcomed to participant in our courses.

Wide-Area Power System Monitoring and Control

Wide-area power system monitoring and control (WAPSMC) is an important issue in modern electric power system design and operation; and is becoming more significant today due to the increasing size, changing structure, introduction of renewable energy sources, distributed smart/micro grids, environmental constraints, and complexity of power systems. The wide area measurement system (WAMS) with phasor measurement units (PMUs) provide key technologies for monitoring, state estimation, system protections and control of widely spread power systems. A direct, more precise and accurate monitoring can be achieved by the technique of phasor measurements and global positioning system (GPS) time signal. Proper grasp of the present state with flexible wide area control and smart operation address significant elements to maintain wide-area stability in the complicated grid with the growing penetration of distributed generation and renewable energy sources. In response to the existing challenge of integrating advanced metering, computation, communication and control into appropriate levels of PSMC, this course provides a comprehensive coverage of WAPSMC understanding, analysis, and realization. It presents both theoretical knowledge and practical foundation for understanding of WAPSMC. Different aspects, current challenges and research directions will be examined in detail.
