Senior Power System Engineer

Rany is a Senior Power System Engineer with a focus on transmission planning and field engineering for ZGlobal.  He conducts highly complex engineering studies of the transmission systems within WECC and focuses on processes and procedures to interconnect to the California grid.

Rany has prepared several power flow and stability data models to meet CAISO and other California utilities’ study requirements and performs steady state, short circuit, PV/QV, Power system & dynamic data modeling, SOL and IROL Studies, and transfer limit analyses. He also performs deliverability assessments to determine the impacts of new generation and transmission projects on the grid. Rany assesses the production of our solar projects by running the expectations on PVSYST and designs the site layouts for new projects.

Prior to joining ZGlobal, Rany worked for the CSEM “Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology” in the optimization of solar cell performance, and the construction of a PV-module for a stratospheric plane using renewable energy (SolarStratos Project).

​Rany Oleiwan holds a Bachelor of Science in Microtechnology and Electronics from “Haute-Ecole ARC” from Neuchatel, Switzerland, and holds a Master of Science degree from Sacramento State University in Electrical Engineering.

Recent accomplishments:

  • Completion of design, project layout, and system size optimization for 12 projects totaling over 890 MW of Hybrid and standalone projects.
  • Completion of the implementation of two 30 MW standalone battery projects.
  • Completion of the project design of 6 solar and distributed generation of 289 MW, all in operation.
