Project 3: Development of fast and discriminative HVDC grid protectionCardiff University

I come from China and received my BSc and MSc degree in Electrical Engineering from Zhejiang University, China in 2012 and 2015, respectively.  After that I joined an HVDC company in China as a power electronics engineer.

My research interests are power electronics-based power systems, e.g. off-shore wind energy systems, LCC and VSC HVDC systems.  I have worked on stability and reliability during my engineering experience.

Being a member of the Marie Curie Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and working for the InnoDC project at Cardiff University is a great honour.  I am now working on the topic ‘Development of fast and discriminative HVDC grid protection’, which is one of the most challenging problems for HVDC systems, especially for the multi-terminal DC system.  The ESRs are given a great opportunity to solve these problems by working with outstanding universities, professors and leading industries.

A PhD is not only a degree, but is also a way of life.  I will treasure my time working for InnoDC and my contribution to the project.

My hobbies are reading, swimming and badminton.  And I aim to explore new areas during my time in Wales.
