Personal Statement

Dr Qiteng Hong is presently a Chancellor’s Fellow (Lecturer) in the EEE department at Strathclyde and his research focus is on novel solutions for protection and control of future power systems with very high penetrations of renewable energy sources, to facilitate the “net zero” carbon electrical energy system of the future. Dr Hong received his BEng (Hons) degree in electronic and electrical engineering from Strathclyde and was the top graduate of the year in 2011. He received his PhD fully funded by National Grid on power system protection in 2015 also from Strathclyde.

During Dr Hong’s career, he has successfully completed/been involved with more than 15 research and knowledge exchange projects, secured over £1.5m as PI and Co-I. I have a strong publication records with more than 40 publications in international journals, conferences and technical reports. Dr Hong has extensive experience in working with industrial partners, e.g. National Grid, SP Energy Networks, ScottishPower Renewables, etc. and strong links with world-leading research organisations, e.g. Tsinghua University, Technical University of Denmark, etc.

Dr Hong played a leading role for EEE and Strathclyde in the execution and delivery of two national flagship projects - EFCC (£9.6m) and Phoenix (£15m), developing the GB's first industrial scale wide-area monitoring and control system for fast frequency control and the first hybrid synchronous compensator and STATCOM system. The EFCC project was shortlisted for the Best Innovation Award by Scottish Renewables and the Project Award at the British Renewable Energy Awards in 2018. Dr Hong was also awarded the highly prestigious IET prize in 2011 for his outstanding academic performance and he was the recipient of the John Moyes Lessells Scholarship by the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2013, which supported a 3-month exchange visit to Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He held a one-year senior visiting scholarship in Tsinghua University, fully funded by Tsinghua. 

Dr Hong delivers power system protection courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels at Strathclyde. He is also involved with the Dual Master's degree programme between Strathclyde and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and teaching at Strathclyde partner universities. He was nominated by the students’ for the “most supportive” award in 2019.

Dr Hong is a Regular Member in the CIGRE Working Group (WG) B5.50 and a member of IEEE WG P2004; he act as the Technical Lead for the CIGRE UK Next Generation Network and occupied the position of Honorary Secretary for the IET Scotland South West Committee until 2018; he was also the main founder and led the CIGRE Paris Global Young Member Showcase in 2016 and 2018, which is a flagship initiative for young professionals from more than 20 countries to showcase their work to world leading experts in CIGRE Paris Sessions. I have been an invited speaker for a wide range of prestigious international conferences or seminars and the chair or main organiser for seven international/national prestigious technical events. Dr Hong is a regular reviewer for leading international journals, e.g. IEEE Trans. on Power Delivery, IET Generation, Transmission & Distribution, etc.
