Personal profile

Personal Statement

I’m a research associate in the in the Institute for Energy and Environment. I received my BEng(Hons) degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering in 2011 and my PhD in power system protection in 2015, both from the University of Strathclyde. Presently, I’m involved with a number of projects and research activities: 

ACCEPT project:  my research mainly focuses on the development of adaptive load shedding scheme to minimise the risk of wide-area blackouts and the investigation of the communication requirements to support such a scheme. This project is in collaboration with University of Manchester, Imperial Colleague and Indian Institutes of Technology.

SMART Frequency Control (SFC) project: the SFC is a Network Innovation Competition (NIC) project led by National Grid with a total funding of over £9 million. The objective is to establish a monitoring and control scheme that allows accurate detection and location of frequency disturbances and initiate fast frequency response from a variety of resources (e.g. wind, PV, etc.). The role of Strathclyde is to conduct comprehensive tests of such a scheme through simulation and the facilities at our Power Network Demonstration Centre (PNDC) to ensure the scheme can meet the design specifications

Intelligent system for protection settings validation:  this is my PhD research project funded by National Grid, and I have been continuously working on this research. During my PhD study, I have developed an intelligent system (termed “PPST”) that allows comprehensive validation of protection settings. I have been working on the refinement of the system so that it can be better suited to practical applications. This research has led to a three-month project awarded by ScottishPower with a funding of £25,711. The project is to evaluate the suitability of existing systems and techniques to be used for protection settings and performance validation in ScottishPower’s system.

I’m a regular member of the CIGRE Working Group B5.50 entitled “IEC 61850-based Substation Automation Systems – Expectation of Stakeholders and User Interaction”. I’m also the honorary secretary of IET Scotland South West Committee and the Technical Lead at the CIGRE UK Next Generation Network.
