Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr Agustí Egea-Àlvarez is Strathclyde Chancellor’s fellow (Lecturer) at the electronic & electrical engineering department and member of the PEDEC (Power Electronics, Drives and Energy Conversion) group. He obtained his BSc, MSc and PhD from the Technical University of Catalonia in Barcelona in 2008, 2010 and 2014 respectively.  In 2015 he was a Marie Curie fellow in the China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI). In 2016 he joined Siemens Gamesa as converter control engineer working on grid forming controllers and alternative HVDC schemes for offshore wind farms. He is a member of IEEE, IET and has been involved in several CIGRE working groups.

Research Interests

His current research interests are:


-          Grid forming and Virtual Synchronous Machine converter control algorithms.

-          Control of Voltage Source Converters to weak grids and low inertia systems.

-          Alternative HVDC connection schemes for offshore wind farm.

-          Control and operation of DC-DC converters for HVDC systems.
