Project 1: Design and control of DC transformer for overlay DC grids – Cardiff University.
I am from China and am one of the Marie Curie Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) working at Cardiff University. I received my BEng and MsC degree in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University in China in 2015 and 2018 respectively. My Master thesis title was “Research on High Performance Control Methods of PMSM Based on SiC Motor Drive”.
My research interests include application of power electronic technology in renewable energy and electric motor drives, including the research of the converter topologies and control techniques.
I wanted to join the InnoDC project because it is a collaborative project in a network of universities and companies with expertise in offshore wind power generation and supply. And the InnoDC project will address the technical challenges linked to developing offshore grids and hybrid AC/DC systems. It is a great opportunity to receive wide-ranging technical and personal skills training and to communicate with a wide range of people.
My InnoDC project is “design and control of DC transformers for overlay DC grids”. The objective is to investigate and propose DC transformers suitable for integration of offshore wind power into large DC grids and interconnection of DC grids with different voltage levels. Design consideration includes voltage level, control strategy, power regulation and fault isolation ability.
My spare time hobbies include reading, badminton and going to the gym.
