Dr. Reza Sabzehgar is an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at San Diego State University. His research group studies different aspects of smart microgrid such as modeling, control, topology identification, power management, and optimization as well as designing and control of power electronics converters with application to renewable energies and smart grids. His group also working on Plugged-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) and V2G technologies. This multifaceted research area requires combined expertise from power electronics, control, power systems, real-time systems, and digital signal processing and has a focus on both fundamentals and contemporary industrial applications. Prior joining San Diego State University, he was a faculty member of School of Energy at British Columbia Institute of Technology and the School of Engineering Science at Simon Fraser University, Metro Vancouver, Canada.
