Power Systems


The Power Systems research group focuses on electric power generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation, through focus on unit commitment, automatic generation control and load scheduling for economic power dispatch, loss reduction in power transmission and distribution, and HVDC transmission. Demand side management, power management with RES, maximum generation from RES, green electricity, electric transportation, protection of power system components, and smart and microgrids for islanded or grid connected operations are also studied.

We also focus on the development of advanced power converter topologies and PWM control techniques, in addition to MPPT control techniques for renewable energy systems. Some other domains of study include micro grids with PV, wind, and distributed energy storage, high-gain DC-DC converters for renewable energy systems, electric vehicles, and smart grid systems integrated with renewable energy systems. We are also working on the thermal analysis of induction motors for various industrial applications, the electromagnetics analysis on electrical machines and design, and the doubly fed induction generator and permanent magnet synchronous generator for wind power applications. 

Additionally, we are also studying the computational analysis of transformer oil with nano-fillers for electrical and physical properties and carrying out time domain analysis of induction motors. The final target of this group is to utilise RES to the maximum and meet the consumer load with smart and intelligent power management system and control withstanding power system dynamics.
