Salman is currently a Sr. Scientific Engineering Associate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He works in the Grid Integration Group (GIG) of the Energy Storage and Distributed Resources (ESDR) Division. Salman works closely with both of the operation and investment/planning DER-CAM (Distributed Energy Resources Customer Adoption Model) development teams. He is also involved in several demonstration projects on microgrids and energy efficient buildings.
Salman received his BSc and MSc in Electrical Engineering - Power Systems from University of Tehran, Iran, in 2006 and 2008, respectively. He then joined the Power System Automation Lab (PSAL) in Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, and graduated with his Electrical Engineering - Power Systems PhD in 2013. His PhD work mainly focused on security-constrained optimal active and reactive power dispatch in microgrids. Moreover, he worked on cyber-physical attack impact analysis in smart grids. Salman's work experience also includes an internship in ABB US Corporate Research Center (ABB USCRC), Raleigh, NC, in 2011, where he worked on feasibility analysis for mixed AC/DC distribution systems in data centers and office buildings.
