The smart grid lab at GJU is established in 2018 and includes a research team that focuses on smart grid topics to conduct several research topics. The research group works in three areas: energy management and renewable energy systems, storage systems and electric vehicles, smart sensors, and precision devices.

Research projects:
  •  Innovative Peer to Peer Electricity Sharing Towards the Development of Smart and Cooperative Microgrids (IAPP18-19\163), [March 2019 – September 2021]. 
  • Decarbonizing Jordanian Energy Systems Utilizing Smart Solutions based on Energy Storage (DJES), [May 2021- March 2023].
  • Digital Twin Software to Control Part of Jordanian Electrical Networks with Considering the Cyber-Security Aspect (DTSA), [April 2021- April 2023
  • Advanced Teaching and training on Smart grid & Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Systems (AT-SGIRES)
  • Modeling and Simulation Distributed Energy Resources in Smart Grid: Management and Optimization.
  • Development of Higher Education Teaching Modules on the Socio-economic Impacts of the Renewable Energy Implementation.
  • Development Of Environmental Engineering Courses And Injection Of Climate Change Concept For Undergraduate Curriculum.
