Keywords: Reliable, photovoltaic, charging station, cost effective.

Ayda Esfandyari is one of Dublin Energy Lab (DEL) PhD researcher. She is based in the School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT). She completed her Master of Engineering (MEng) in the area of energy and power engineering from University College Dublin (UCD) in 2011. She finished her Bachelors of Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Dublin Institute of Technology, in 2008.


She also spent 8 months at Washington State University (WSU), researching in the area of Renewable Energy System (RES) with special focus on wind energy and system stability.


Ayda’s current PhD research which is conducted under the supervision of Professor Brain Norton ( President of DIT), Dr Sarah McCormack (Trinity College Dublin) and Professor Michael Conlon, is in the area of “reliable system design and performance of PV-Charging Station (PV-CS) for green university campus transportation” The objective of Ayda's work is; to design an intelligent energy management control and protection mechanisms, that would ultimately facilitate optimal, reliable and cost effective performance PV-CS for charging EVs load demand with zero emissions at generation point. This will allow fulfilling national and international sustainability targets.
