Projects per year
Professor Weijia Yuan received his Bachelor degree from Tsinghua University and his PhD from the University of Cambridge. 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. 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.
Professor Yuan's achievement in Engineering and Physics have been recognised as being awarded the Fellowship by both the Institute of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Physics.
