M.Sc. Thesis

Advisors: Prof. Sh. Farhangi, Prof. H. Iman-eini
In my M.Sc. thesis, I am working on Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) systems for electric vehicle application. In this research project I had these main goals:
  1. Review the state of art
  2. Design, optimize and build the magnetic coupling coils
  3. Circuit design and optimize it for different loads or different coupling coefficients
  4. PCB design
  5. Build the experimental setup and test
Progress 100%

I presented one conference paper on designing a whole WPT system in PEDSTC 2016. In this paper a Series matching network for both primary and secondary side of the WPT was proposed. Furthermore, Loss analysis of the magnetic components and coils simulated.

In addition, I submitted one journal paper which is about the optimization of the magnetic couplers of the WPT coils. This paper proposed a magnetic coupling structures with maximum coupling coefficient with minimum sensitivity to misalignment. We also prepared some experimental results to validate the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and optimization method.

Moreover, currently I wrote a new paper on the optimal method of designing the circuit with LCL compensating network in primary . In this paper I discussed about selection of the value of each component in the resonant network to achieve maximum efficiency.

B.Sc. Thesis

In my B.Sc. thesis, I focused on power system transmission network expansion planing (NEP). In this research project I had these main goals:
  1. Review relevant papers
  2. Define the NEP problem and propose a solution
  3. Difine a linear model for the NEP problem
  4. Model and Solve the NEP problem in GAMS
  5. Compare the obtained results with other optimization methods
Progress 100%

The proposed method had very fast response and accurate decisions in expanding the transmission network. Furthermore, I solved the problem in its nonlinear form and compared the results with linear model.
