Friday, October 24, 2014 - 13:00 to 14:00

This weeks IES Seminar shall be by Dr Jonathan Shek. Please see details below.


Presentation abstract:

Jonathan will talk about his work in the area of power conversion and control for sustainable energy, through a number of projects that he is currently working on. These include Off-Grid Hybrid Energy Systems, Electrical System Modelling for Tidal Current Turbines, and Mitigation of Unbalanced Forces in Electrical Generators. He has recently returned from a Joint Research Scoping Workshop in Nanjing, China between the School of Engineering and its equivalent at NUAA and will take a few minutes to report on this.    



Jonathan Shek currently holds the position of Chancellor's Fellow within the Institute for Energy Systems at the University of Edinburgh and he is working in the area of power take-off and conditioning, condition monitoring, and control for renewable energy devices.  He received M.Eng(Hons) and Ph.D degrees from the University of Edinburgh and has a background in Electronics and Electrical Engineering.

His main research interest lies in power electronics and control, particularly its application in sustainable energy systems, such as marine energy converters and electric vehicles. His aim is to better enable emerging technologies in sustainable energy through the application of advanced power electronics and novel control. This area of research is highly interdisciplinary and has so far led him work on collaborative projects in academia and with industry.
