Projects per year
Professor Weijia Yuan received his Bachelor degree from Tsinghua University in 2006 and his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2010. He then became both a research associate in the Engineering Department and a junior research fellow at Wolfson College, both at the University of Cambridge from 2010 to 2011. Dr Yuan joined the University of Bath as a Lecturer/Assistant Professor in 2011, where he was later promoted to Reader/Associate Professor in 2016. He joined the University of Strathclyde as a Professor in 2018.
He is now leading a research team of 15 researchers in the area applied superconductivity including energy storage, fault current limiters, machines and power transmission lines. He has been working closely with industry partners on all electric propulsion for future electric aircraft, designing a fully superconducting system for aerospace application. His work also involves renewable energy integration and power system stability using energy storage systems.
