The industry involvements and research outputs of Manchester attracted me to the university.

Project title: Multi-Terminal VSC-HVDC Networks-Grid Control

Funded by: Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)

Before I joined Power Conversion as a Research Associate …

Before joining the Power Conversions group I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia (July 2013-August 2014).

I believe that working as a RA for a couple of years is necessary to develop my career in research, with the aim of eventually becoming a faculty member. The industry involvements and research outputs of Manchester attracted me to the university. 

Tell us a little about your position and project …

The project involves analysis and modelling of many challenging and current issues involved with National Grid, UK, which I enjoy a lot. 

The main responsibilities of the position are: 

  1. Develop a suitable candidate model for multi-terminal VSC-HVDC for tapping North-Sea wind resources to UK National Grid.
  2. Propose a comprehensive control combination for such multi-terminal DC grid.
  3. M. Eng teaching and research supervision.

Any advice for students considering entering research?

Be confident on your achievements as well as keep some room to admit that there is a lot to know.
