Personal profile


Dr. Jahangir Hossain (M’10, SM’13, IEEE) received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic engineering from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia. He is currently working at Macquarie University in the School of Engineering. Before joining at Macquarie University, he worked as a senior lecturer and lecturer in the discipline of Electrical & Electronic Engineering under the Griffith School of Engineering and as a research fellow in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. Previously, he worked as a lecturer and assistant professor at Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology, Bangladesh for six years. During the past five years, he has successfully completed two large research projects with CSIRO (http://igrid.net.au/resources/index.html#project1) and CIGRE (CIGRE Working Group C1.13 Report) while working at UQ and UNSW.

Because of his significant contributions to renewable energy research, he received the Griffith University’s PVC’s Research Excellence Award for an early career academic in 2013, a prize for the best paper from an international conference in 2013 and  the prestigious  France-Australia Science Innovation Collaboration Program Fellowship  in 2014 (one of only six researchers from Australia). He was promoted to IEEE senior member within two years of gaining his PhD.

His research interests are:

  • Renewable Energy Integration and FACTS Devices with Energy Storage
  • Smart Grid, Hybrid Microgrids, Electrical Vehicles and Distributed Generations
  • Dynamics, stability Analysis, robust Control and cyber secured control for smart grids
  • Power Electronics, Electric Vehicles, Electrical Drives and Intelligent Control

He is currently involved in the following projects:

  • Distributed control for efficient and reliable operation of smart grids
  • Investigation of dynamic interactions in future power distribution networks
  • Control Strategies for Microgrids with Renewable Generations and Energy Storage Systems
  • Flattening the curve: Distributed energy storage systems for peak demand management
  • Power Microgrid Stability Challenges during Highly Fluctuating Feed-in
