EEE Department hosts a seminar on “Energy Management for Residential Microgrids”
A seminar on “A Hierarchical Transactive Energy Management Framework for Residential Microgrids” was held at the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) of Independent University Bangladesh (IUB) on Tuesday, 17 January, 2017. Dr. Apel Mahmud, Lecturer at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia was the speaker of the seminar. Dr. Mahmud spoke about one of the important aspects of recent time “Power Saving” through energy sharing and transactions among neighbours as well as using grids. He also demonstrated how a three-level hierarchical structure can lead to a residential microgrid for better future.
