Research Interests and Current Activities
 Sizing and design of a PV power pumping system for a remote area in Matlab software.
 Study and design of different Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controllers a PV power
systems in Matlab software with optimizing some of the MPPT techniques to improve the total
efficiency of the PV system.
 Study and design of different of DC-DC converters for MPPT interface of the PV system
 Design and simulation of artificial intelligence controllers (fuzzy logic and Neural network) for
nonlinear systems

Final Year Project: Comparison Between The Analog and Digital Electricity
Meters: the objective of this project was to find the advantages and
disadvantages of the Analog and the Digital electricity meters, and to
perform a comparison between both meters in terms of accuracy and the
cost. In addition to that, the possibilities of how to improve the digital meters
in the city of Beni-Walid in Libya to transfer the reading directly to the
company without visiting the sites.
