Masoud Aliakbar Golkar was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1954. He received the B.Sc. degree from the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 1977; the M.Sc. degree from the Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK, USA, in 1979, and the Ph.D. degree from the Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, The University of London, London, U.K., in 1986, respectively, all in electrical engineering (power systems). Since 1979, he has been teaching and researching at the K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, where he is currently a Professor. He is the Advisor of many electricity boards and has successfully conducted many projects for different electricity utilities in Iran. He has lead several research groups in electrical distribution systems and reactive power studies with the Electric Power Research Center (EPRC) for more than 15 years. From January 2002 to July 2005, he served as a Senior Lecturer with the Curtin University of Technology, Miri, Malaysia. He is the author of several books and has published more than 300 papers in national and international journals and conferences. His main research interests include smart grid, distributed generation, Renewable Energy Systems, modern electric distribution systems, reactive power studies, voltage collapse studies, and load and energy management.
