Wei Liu began his secondment at EFACEC, Portugal, in January 2020. Emily Maggioli, Motaz Ayiad and he organised a meeting with Prof Helder Leite, Hugo Martins and Rui Dias Jorge in EFACEC’s PAC department where it was decided Wei would work on distance protection under Rui’s supervision.
Unfortunately, the secondment was interrupted in March due to Covid-19. Nonetheless, Wei was particularly grateful for his time at Efacec and the valuable industrial experience in that he
- Gained knowledge on protection relays produced by EFACEC.
- Built simulation models on distance protection by PSCAD/EMTDC.
- Conducted research on DC protections.
He aims to return to EFACEC in 2021, if not to continue his secondment, at least to meet Rui so they can discuss his research progress.
